Several Alpharetta homeowners association already employ Flock cameras as crime deterrent measures, staff said in a report to the council. The devices record vehicle license plates and save the video for 30 days.
Alpharetta police can now access Flock video when investigating crimes. There is no cost to the city, and cooperation with police is voluntary for Flock customers. “Long term, this can not only help solve crimes, it can also be a deterrent as participating neighborhoods have signage indicating potential criminals are being recorded,” staff said.
