Project Green Light Detroit is the first public-private-community partnership of its kind, blending a mix of real-time crime-fighting and community policing aimed at improving neighborhood safety, promoting the revitalization and growth of local businesses, and strengthening DPD’s efforts to deter, identify, and solve crime. Using a system from Motorola Solutions, multiple video feeds can be seen on one screen and high-definition images are shared.

Each business that partners with the program has a green light placed in a very prominent position on their building so it lets criminals know they are being watched. It also allows for victims to quickly identify a safe place to go when trouble strikes.
