The Peoria Police Department is testing its Shot-Spotter technology in the East Bluff and Near North End Wednesday evening. That requires police to discharge firearms in those areas starting around 8pm. The tests will last about half-an-hour. Police will notify residents when the tests begin and end in their areas.
The Peoria City/County Health Department is urging residents to get a flu shot before next month. Administrator Greg Chance says even though flu activity is low in the Peoria-area, the flu season often peaks in January.
