Police in Omaha say new camera equipment and an alert system are aimed at curbing gun violence in the city.

Mayor Jim Suttle announced Monday that the Omaha Police Department will activate cruiser cameras that will allow police to observe and record audio of emergency calls, traffic stops and pursuits.

The department also will use a shot spotter alert system to help officers immediately locate where a gun has been fired.

Officials say this will modernize the department and allow for faster response time.
