“These cameras will enhance safety and monitoring of specific areas designated by the Chamblee Police Department,” police said.

The FLOCK safety cameras are set of surveillance devices that can read license plates on cars and deliver monitoring information to police in real-time.

Multiple cities in the Atlanta metro area have FLOCK cameras deployed, including in Duluth, Snellville, Smyrna, Lawrenceville, Loganville, Sandy Springs among others.
