In coordination with the Gwinnett County Police Department Westside Precinct, Gateway85 CID has partnered with Flock Safety to install 10 cameras throughout the district as a pilot project.
The wireless license plate reading cameras are located strategically throughout the district based on Gwinnett Police Department commercial area crime analysis reports. The cameras are able to capture vehicles traveling up to 55 MPH, day and night, and up to 75 feet away.
Recently, one camera located near an open space captured images showing that it was being used as a public dumping site. The pictures were used to identify the culprit participating in illegal dumping, which subsequently led to a substantial fine and clean-up.
