City of Peachtree Corners Partners with Fusus to Launch Connect Peachtree Corners Camera Registration
The City of Peachtree Corners has partnered with Fusus, an organization located within their rapidly growing high-tech hub, to provide enhanced public safety services to local businesses and residents. Fusus is a nationally recognized public safety technology provider that has operated out of its headquarters in Peachtree Corners since 2019.
Fusus is known in the law enforcement and public safety sphere for its leading-edge solutions, in use by cities and agencies nationwide including the Atlanta Police Department. A 2020 member of Atlanta Inno’s “50 on Fire”, recognizing the hottest new companies in the Atlanta area, Fusus has continued to expand its footprint due to rapidly increasing demand for its platform, as well as an increasing headcount.
The partnership will increase the efficiency of law enforcement and public safety responses by building a community-based public safety ecosystem that will enable residents and businesses in the area to directly participate in the safety of their community.
The partnership begins with the launch of Connect Peachtree Corners. Connect Peachtree Corners is a tool that allows residents to register the location of their private home security cameras. The registration of a camera is completely optional and does not provide access to the camera to anyone. The camera registration simply allows for the creation of a city-wide camera map for use by law enforcement. If a crime occurs in the city, law enforcement will be able to reference the map, and if they feel it is beneficial, they may contact a homeowner to request access to footage.
“We’re excited to partner with the City of Peachtree Corners to create increased public safety innovation found in most major cities, right here in our backyard. And where more appropriate than our hometown, the “Silicon Orchard,” to provide some of the most progressive, cutting-edge community safety tools available,” said Chris Lindenau, CEO of Fusus. “As a growing high-tech hub, Peachtree Corners was an obvious choice for our headquarters, now we’re looking forward to giving back to our local community.”
Peachtree Corners residents and businesses are encouraged to visit Connect Peachtree Corners Residential Camera Registry to learn more about the program, access the frequently asked questions and register their security cameras.
“As a city government, we take the issue of public safety very seriously. There are not many things more important,” said City Manager Brian Johnson. “This partnership and associated camera registry program will allow us to support law enforcement with a new technology tool, and will lead to increased public safety throughout the City.”
Like their efforts in cities like Atlanta, Cleveland and Minneapolis, the Fusus platform and the Connect Peachtree Corners camera registry will serve as a central point for our local law enforcement and first responder agencies. It will bring all personnel and emergency operations centers under one umbrella and provide them with video and data information that will integrate directly with 911- Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems.
As the partnership continues forward, additional offerings by Fusus will enable increased business participation and a host of other utilities designed to promote community safety and collaboration with public safety resources.
