A recent article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution claims the Atlanta Police Department’s Real-Time Crime Center (Fusion Center) has just created a 4,500 real-time camera surveillance network using “Connect Atlanta.”
“Connect Atlanta, a network of more than 4,500 surveillance cameras from across the city, will allow officers to pull up footage on their cellphones and laptops from inside their squad cars, before they even get to a scene, the department said Wednesday.”
Police are calling “Connect Atlanta” a game-changer.
“It’s connected to our dispatch so that gives us the proactive ability to immediately see the cameras related to calls as they come in and relay that information to officers,” he said. “That’s going to be a game-changer for us,” Deputy Chief Michael O’Connor said.
The article also revealed that police use “Connect Atlanta” to monitor shoppers and fans in real-time at the Lenox Square shopping center, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and much more.
