Irondale Police Use New Tech to Catch Crooks

Featured on WBRC FOX6 in Birmingham, AL

"We have to have technology to help us to keep everybody safe."

"Irondale police are utilizing new a system of cameras that can read license plates and already they are seeing the benefits.

“It happened yesterday and in less than five minutes of the camera detecting the tag, we got an alert,” said Irondale Detective Sergeant Michael Mangina.

That alert was about a stolen vehicle. Irondale officers found out about it through the camera designed and powered by Flock Safety.

“And we were able to get cars over there, police cars over there, and we found the car,” said Mangina.

The department has been using the technology for about two months."
