When a crime occurs, investigators can view the new SMILE map to determine which cameras may have captured images of a suspect.
Only accessible to law enforcement personnel, this new map will not have access to any cameras or systems but only will document their locations and the contact information provided by the owner.
Last year, homeowner associations began inquiring of the MPD about private ALPRs for their subdivisions, according to Flynn.
One such system, installed as a trial, was responsible for the apprehension of a wanted felon and the recovery of a stolen vehicle in an ongoing investigation.
Marietta residents and business owners interested in joining the MPD in assembling this crime-fighting map may register at arcg.is/1i9Gy90.
