Hi-Def Video Camera Network Deters Crime + Aids Incident Response
Midtown Blue’s public safety officers monitor – in real time – the region’s most extensive network of high-definition video cameras, covering nearly 90% of the district’s public right-of-way. Vigilant surveillance leads to immediate response when issues arise – from public safety to transportation. Made possible through funding from Midtown properties and companies, the cameras are monitored 24/7/365. All areas under surveillance are clearly marked with signs.
Public safety partners in Midtown also benefit from a secure communications system that links them together, reducing the response time to emergencies and accident scenes. Working collaboratively with Midtown Blue and the APD are the public safety forces of MARTA, Georgia Tech, the Federal Reserve Bank, Emory University Midtown Hospital police and Norfolk Southern Railroad, as well as officials from the Georgia Department of Transportation and private property security contacts. Midtown Blue also partners with a host of organizations that work to address quality of life issues in the district.
Cameras are installed at the following locations:
