ShotSpotter
ShotSpotter, a Santa Clara company, has developed a way to "acoustically triangulate the origin of gunfire" and trigger 911 dispatch. It has raised $1.86 million in a first round of funding led by Lauder Partners, according to PE Week (scroll down). Lauder Partners, of course, is run by Gary Lauder, scion to the Estee Lauder fortune, who we were just talking about (scroll down), and who is a cowboy, stuntman and firefighter all at the same time
