Partnerships for Safer Communities

Our community is safer with partnerships. In times of crime or terrorist threats, the goal of the Cyber-Intelligence Unit of the Mobile Police Department is to keep public gathering places—where you work, attend school, shop, go for entertainment—safe.

About Project Shield 

Project Shield is a public-private partnership that allows the Mobile Police Department Cyber-Intelligence Unit access to existing surveillance cameras located in businesses, schools, living communities and other establishments throughout the City of Mobile. 

Think of Project Shield as the city's safety net that can provide first responders, who are on the ground, with information in real time. If there is ever an alarming situation of crime or terrorist threat, the Cyber-Intelligence Unit would have access to specific camera feeds, thus giving the responding police officers information that could save lives.
