SYRACUSE, N.Y., August 10, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Destiny USA, the largest shopping, dining and entertainment destination in New York State, is announcing a partnership with the Syracuse Police Department and Flock Safety, a crime-solving technology company. Flock Safety license plate reading (LPR) cameras provide law enforcement with real-time data to identify the make, model, color, and license plate of each vehicle entering and exiting every vehicle entrance to Destiny USA.
"Partnering with Flock Safety to provide helpful information to law enforcement that will help prevent crime and solve incidents was an easy decision," said Stephen J. Congel, Chief Executive Officer, Pyramid Management Group. "We are deeply committed to doing our part to keep Destiny USA and the community that supports us safe while assisting law enforcement."
Flock Safety LPR cameras capture actionable evidence and send real-time alerts if a wanted or stolen vehicle passes by the cameras. The alerts are sent to law enforcement within seconds. For example, if a vehicle is reported stolen and that vehicle arrives at Destiny USA, a real-time alert is sent to law enforcement immediately.
"The Syracuse Police Department is pleased to partner with Pyramid Management Group to continue to provide a safe and enjoyable experience at Destiny USA," said Syracuse Chief of Police Joseph L. Cecile. "We are excited to see Destiny USA's further investment in public safety by partnering with Flock Safety cameras. Technology is a force multiplier when it comes to criminal prevention and apprehension. Having these cameras at Destiny USA will aid us in being able to better identify criminal behavior and lead to quicker arrests. We applaud Pyramid's efforts and look forward to continuing our partnership to ensure the safety of our Syracuse community."
The installation of the Flock Safety cameras joins several existing safety enhancements in place at Destiny USA:
- Expanded enforcement of Destiny USA's Parental Escort Policy (PEP), which is in effect during all operational hours, every day of the week.
- Enhanced community engagement through UnBEYlievable Enterprises, which meets on-site with any at-risk youth visiting Destiny USA.
- On-site personnel from Destiny USA's global security provider, AUS for dedicated CCTV-monitoring, incident response, parking lot and garage coverage.
- Syracuse Police Department officers patrolling both inside and outside of Destiny USA.
- Onondaga County Probation officers engaging guests on-site at Destiny USA.
In addition to being used at Destiny USA, the Flock Safety system is widely used by over 40 shopping centers throughout the country, including Pyramid-owned Walden Galleria in Buffalo, NY.
"We couldn't be more pleased with how effective Flock Safety cameras have been in preventing and solving crimes throughout our community," said Cheektowaga Police Chief Brian Gould. "The cameras are proving to be a powerful force multiplier, as officers are solving crimes, making arrests, and closing cases every day."Contact Information:
