    Both members and non-members of the City Council Committee on Police and Fire expressed support for the ShotSpotter gunshot detection technology during discussion on a measure that seeks to allow individual wards to keep the technology ahead of an upcoming citywide contract termination.  

    But alderpersons also said more data should be shared by the Chicago Police Department (CPD) to give a better picture of the overall success of the program — data which the order would also promulgate.  

    Additionally on Monday, the committee voted to raise the mandatory retirement age for police officers, sending the final decision to the City Council.
