ATLANTA – Atlanta City Councilmember Felicia Moore introduced an ordinance at the April 18 Atlanta City Council meeting authorizing payment of $125,000 from her District 9 carry forward account to the  Atlanta Police Foundation for the installation, maintenance, and operation of security cameras in the city’s right-of-way within District 9.

The police foundation started installing cameras (PTZ cam) and license plate readers (LPR) throughout the city with plans of having as many as 12,000 devices at various locations.

“District 9 continues to support initiatives designed to protect and increase the safety of the residents of the City of Atlanta,” said Moore.

The devices will be integrated into the city’s Operation Shield Video Integration Center where police can monitor images from more than 5,700 high-tech cameras throughout the city.

The legislation was referred to the Finance/Executive Committee.
