Security surveillance cameras will be installed at strategic locations in Grafton, Wisconsin to reduce crime, protect privacy and mitigate bias, the city police department announced.

The city will be deploying Flock Safety, a public safety operating system used in more than 1,000 U.S. cities to capture visual evidence and use machine learning to assist law enforcement.  

The cameras will be installed near shopping areas to streamline criminal investigations and deter drivers of stolen vehicles from traveling through the area. The cameras also use vehicle fingerprint technology to capture car details such as full, partial or missing license plates and vehicle make and model.
