The Piedmont Police Department uses Flock Safety's Operating System to capture objective evidence without compromising on individual privacy. Piedmont PD utilizes retroactive search to solve crimes after they've occurred. Additionally, PPD utilizes real-time alerting of hotlist vehicles to capture wanted criminals. In an effort to be open with the public to demonstrate our proper usage and communicate what guardrails are in place, we have made the below policies and usage statistics available to the public.
