Comcast Business SmartOffice™ Video Monitoring Solution Helps Project Green Light Detroit Improve Public Safety
Crime Deterrent Program Designed to Help Protect High-Risk Businesses
Project Green Light Detroit is a public safety initiative for small businesses in the city of Detroit. Spearheaded by Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Detroit Police Chief James Craig, the program outfits participating businesses with indoor and outdoor surveillance cameras for 24/7 real-time activity monitoring, with the goal of reducing crime and bringing offenders to justice. When an emergency call is logged, Detroit police officers can easily access a live feed from on-site cameras for a real-time look at the vicinity, which greatly assists in their crime fighting efforts.
Project Green Light launched in January of 2016 and has focused efforts on businesses most susceptible to theft, including gas stations, party stores and restaurants.
“The City of Detroit is home to a variety of small businesses, and we are proud to support them however we can,” said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. “Safety is a top concern for both city officials and local business owners, and Project Green Light has been a true gamechanger in helping to improve security measures across the city. The program has helped produce safer business environments for owners and patrons, and we’re committed to driving its ongoing growth and success.”
