College Park Police Fight Crime With Iron Sky

Iron Sky : 08 November, 2010  (Application Story)
Surveillance management and mapping tool from Iron Sky improves the effectiveness of College Park police in responding to crimes taking place in the city
College Park Police Fight Crime With Iron Sky
Using Iron Sky's citywide surveillance solution, College Park police recently made 20 arrests as part of a prostitution sting. Iron Sky specializes in Better Tools to Fight Crime; the company delivers a single interactive map that incorporates reported incidents, patrol car locations and video footage on one easy-to-use, web-based interface that officers can access from any computer on the network.


"College Park is a great place to work and live. We are not going to stand-by and let these crimes reduce the quality of life in our city," said Interim Chief Ron Fears. "This advanced video technology from Iron Sky gives our hard-working officers the tools to interact with my management team so that we can respond in real-time to what is happening around our city."

College Park launched the Iron Sky system last year, with surveillance locations along Old National Highway, Camp Creek Parkway and Main Street that record images 24 hours a day at 20 to 30 frames per second. Early success led to support from local businesses and expansion plans that will include parks and main thoroughfares in a city that serves as home to one of the world's busiest airports.

"College Park has a great vision for how the Iron Sky system can help them protect residents," said General Manager Bob Carter. "I am very eager to see what our continued partnership will produce."

Iron Sky also has provided its crime-fighting tools to other metro Atlanta communities. Recently, Russell New Urban Development selected Iron Sky to install high-resolution, pan/tilt/zoom cameras in the Historic Westside Village. Midtown Blue also upgraded its system with Iron Sky, and city officials in Lilburn have approved the $103,000 purchase of 14 high-definition cameras to monitor its city park and Greenway Trail.

"Success in College Park serves as further proof that a system made for cops has been embraced by cops," said Iron Sky CEO Keith Drummond. "We are proud to see Iron Sky expand throughout metro Atlanta and look forward to even more projects throughout the State of Georgia."
