Franklin Police using state-of-the-art technology to help keep citizens safe
Heading criminals off at the pass, finding a lost child, and keeping a watchful eye on public events is all about perspective. Ours just happens to be 38 feet in the air.
Using court-awarded money from drug dealers, the Franklin Police Department purchased a mobile sky-cam that can be deployed virtually anywhere, in a matter of minutes. Officers using this technology can monitor an area or event from two powerful cameras on their phone, tablet, or computer. Captured images can be immediately shared with officers at a scene, and camera operators can utilize an onboard 2-way public address system to communicate with crowds during an emergency.
The Department’s first deployment of this new technology was at Franklin’s Christmas Tree lighting, on December 1. “This system gives us an incredible edge on safeguarding events and protecting our citizens,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “The view from these cameras provides relevant, real-time information to officers deployed throughout a crowd or event.”
Franklin Police will demo some of the capabilities of this new technology,
near the intersection of Fifth Ave. & Main St.,
today at 1:00 pm.
