The Langdon Place City Council has decided to partner with Flock Safety to keep our community safe from crime.
Flock Safety provides turnkey, crime-fighting technology to private communities like ours. They build, install, maintain, and monitor the health of the camera hardware. We lease the hardware annually, pushing updates automatically so we always have the latest and greatest technology protecting our community. The solar-powered system connects to the cloud using LTE; all hardware is conveniently placed on a pole, positioned at neighborhood entrances. Cameras provide 24/7 protection to our community while maintaining privacy.
Based on our research, it has been determined that the best locations to place the Flock cameras to be most effective in preventing and solving crime is at all six entrances to the city.
New Flock Security Cameras being installed:
- Flock Security cameras will be installed to photograph all inbound vehicle license plates at six possible vehicle entrance ways to Langdon Place as a means to improve residents security and safety.
- Payment for the 2-year contract for Flock Security Cameras was made from a federal grant for infrastructure and safety improvements (ARPA) not from Langdon Place tax dollars.
- The Flock system is linked directly to LMPD. LMPD maintains a “Hot List” of vehicles involved in crime. If a “Hot List” vehicle is detected, LMPD police cars in the immediate area are notified within seconds.
- Several other nearby Home Rule cities currently have Operating Flock systems including: Norton Commons, Polo Fields, Woods of Sta Thomas and Parklands.
- Louisville, along with Lexington, Indianapolis and other major regional cities have major initiatives planned to expand their existing networks of very large Flock systems in 2023.
- The Flock system was very highly recommended by the Lexington City Council and their police department, with documented cases of crime reduction.
