Our Founding Story
In 2017, our Founder and CEO Garrett Langley experienced property crime in his Atlanta neighborhood. With little evidence to help police track down the suspects and a dead-end case, he saw an opportunity to make a change.
After working with local police to understand how citizens can help prevent and solve crime, Garrett brought in co-founder Matt Feury and early employees Paige Todd and Bailey Quintrell to launch the company. Since March 2017, the company has exhibited significant growth. As a result, Flock Safety has been trusted by communities in thousands of cities to stop crime and raised over $330 million in venture capital from leading firms including Andreessen Horowitz, Matrix Partners, Initialized Capital, Axon, Bedrock Capital, Matrix Partners, Founders Fund, and Y-Combinator.
Despite its incredible growth, today Flock retains the same vision that Garrett founded the company with: to eliminate crime and shape a safer future, together.
