Flock camera and footage

The Elkhart Police Department will install six license plate-reading cameras around town. The cameras will not be monitored live but can inform police when a vehicle involved in a crime is spotted.

ELKHART — The Elkhart Police Department will soon have a new crime-fighting tool at its disposal, as a private donor is paying for six mobile cameras to be placed around town.

Police Chief Kris Seymore said the license plate-reading cameras could be a game-changer for solving crimes. Garrett Langley, founder and CEO of camera provider Flock Safety, said each camera has a similar effect as adding a police officer to a street corner.

Ah yes! Next thing is shot spotter. 1984 has finally arrived in Elkhart. But I suspect it was already here to some extent. Lots of cameras at lots of intersections! Just saying!
