With thousands of students, faculty, and visitors spread across college and university campuses on any given day, it is imperative for officers to understand what transpires on their campus. Preventing crimes like larceny and theft, vandalism, and maintaining general situational awareness can be especially difficult in a campus setting with so many visitors across dozens of entry and exit points. Deploying campus-wide Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR)s can create safer campuses and helps law enforcement solve crimes that occur. Axon partners with Flock Safety to offer a smart, ethically-designed ALPR network with fixed and mobile sensors for campus-wide coverage, providing a safer environment for your community.
Axon and Flock Safety joined forces to give your agency a significantly better understanding of campus activities at all times. Axon’s mobile ALPR feature of the forthcoming Axon Fleet 3 in-car video system optimally combines with Flock Safety’s 24-hour fixed cameras. By monitoring entry and exit points and other vulnerable spots on campus, Flock Safety technology will detect any potential threats as soon as they enter campus and alert your agency so that officers can quickly respond.arrive at the scene to neutralize the threat.Moreover, data shows that the existence of Flock Safety cameras decreases crime , which means fewer risks for campus and fewer incidents your agency needs to respond to.
The most powerful features of Flock Safety’s ALPR is its integration with Axon Evidence and thousands of cameras across the country. Flock Safety data can be shared to Axon Evidence creating one central place to manage Flock Safety ALPR records and the rest of your data. For your agency, you gain efficiency by managing your plate read records and alongside all your other evidence, and those efficiencies translate into time that can be given back to investigations that solve crime and exonerate the innocent. Also, as more institutions utilize ALPRs, the network expands and improves to catch suspects and recover stolen vehicles. Any vehicle on NCIC’s Hotlist is flagged under Flock Safety’s network, notifying your agency from hundreds of miles away. Flock Safety also aids in the discovery of stolen vehicles. Using this technology, one agency was able to recover over a half million dollars’ worth of stolen vehicles within months of installation and even reduce crime by 60%. 
If your campus has an existing camera system and is not ready to upgrade, the Flock Safety Wing integration transforms existing IP cameras into AI-powered hubs. You can still take advantage of Flock Safety’s patented Vehicle Fingerprint technology on your third-party cameras and use machine vision to find vehicles of interest.
Through Axon and Flock Safety’s partnership, you can ensure a safer campus and quicker investigations.
