The Valdosta Housing Authority has purchased the Iron Sky video system to install at Hudson Dockett along Fry Street.

Police say cameras set up in alleys and along roads will record outside activity but not inside homes.

The software is designed to not infringe on people's privacy by automatically blocking movement at windows and open doorways.

Officers say having this system in place when 11 people were shot last year at Hudson Dockett, could have helped police locate the suspect sooner.

"With this system in place, if something were to happen down there again, we would have video evidence to identify the perpetrators," said Commander Brian Childress, with the Valdosta Police Department. "This system is designed to allow the police department to view live video there."

The new public safety system will be installed in the next few months.
