Montgomery Police Department Launches New Crime Center
On Feb. 1, 2019, Montgomery Police Department announced the launch of a new police-community technology initiative, focused on a new real-time crime center.
The River Region Strategic Technology and Resource Center (or STAR) Center is a state-of-the-art facility that utilizes video surveillance from every source available to enhance response time, and provide accurate information for responding officers.
In addition to the facility, MPD announces a police-community partnership called the STAR Watch program. STAR Watch is a voluntary program that will allow businesses and citizens, schools, and neighborhoods to share cameras with the STAR Center. This will allow MPD to enhance its coverage area and provide useful information for in-progress crime. The STAR Center has chosen Eagle Eye Networks for the video management software due to its affordability, security and ease of use.
If you have any questions regarding STAR Watch or the STAR Center, feel free to contact the Planning and Technology Bureau at 334-625-2334. We thank you for your interest, and assistance, with fighting crime in the River Region!
