STAR Watch Program
The Montgomery Police Department has launched a new police-community technology initiative that is built around a real-time crime center. The River Region Strategic Technology and Resource Center (STAR) is a state-of-the-art MPD facility that uses video camera feeds from throughout the city to work smarter and more efficiently, and to increase safety.
STAR Watch is a voluntary program that allows businesses, residents, schools, neighborhoods and others to share their cameras with the STAR Center.
HOW CAN YOU JOIN?
There is NO cost to join if you already have an online camera security system. Download the STAR Watch registration form and email it to the STAR Center or call MPD's Star Center - 334-625-2334 for more information.
