The remote sensing of gunshot noise in high crime areas becoming more widespread. Here is an article about it.

I happened to see similar technology in use in Iraq/Afghanistan about a year ago which pinpoints sniper shots in less than a second. Each Humvee is equipped with a pod bristling with omni-directional microphones. Upon registering a shot, it instantly calculates direction and distance often not allowing a second one to be delivered before a counter response. As I recall it was an offshoot of MIT research. 

Jeff Watson adds:

Nassau County uses "Shot Spotter," which is the same technology. Yesterday, the police used that technology to determine where a bunch of shots were fired. Unfortunately, the person who fired the shots defending his family and property went to jail for excessive force or something like that. I'll save the editorial for later.
