Atlanta council approves Flock as ALPR camera vendor to combat crime

The plan includes adding 250 more police officers (the department has dropped from 2,000 officers during the Kasim Reed administration to about 1,600 at the beginning of 2021). It also calls for adding 250 more cameras to the police’s Operation Shield, a network of more than 10,000 city- and privately-owned cameras it uses to monitor the city for crime, and requiring ICAT (Integrating Communications, Assessment, and Tactics) training for officers to help them successfully and safely resolve potentially dangerous situations.
