Partnership Between Crescenta Valley Station, The City of La Cañada Flintridge and Flock Safety Yield Great Arrests

Over the last week, residents in our station area may have noticed several great arrests by Crescenta Valley Deputies. On both Sunday and Monday, we recovered a stolen vehicle and arrested several suspects.  On Tuesday, we found a vehicle that was involved in a La Cañada Flintridge residential burglary and arrested the suspect.  The burglary suspect was then tied to several other burglaries in the area. 

While we would love to take all the credit, it was a team effort between the station, the City of La Cañada Flintridge, and the Flock Safety cameras.  The three parties entered into a partnership where numerous Flock Safety cameras were deployed throughout the city. The cameras have Automatic License Plate Recognition technology that can read the plates of passing vehicles, day or night.  The cameras help identify vehicles that are reported stolen.  They can also pinpoint license plates that have a warrant or are wanted in connection to a crime.  Once the camera identifies a vehicle that is wanted, the system alerts our Deputies.  With a plate number and vehicle picture on hand, our field units can search the area for the car.  

This new technology will assist our station with recovering stolen property, apprehending suspects, and lowering crime.  We look forward to sharing more success stories in the future.
