FUSUS Grant to Get Final Vote


This Thursday, Council will take their final vote to approve a $10,000 grant for downtown businesses to integrate their security camera footage with the Lexington Police Department’s FUSUS system.

Through the grant, downtown businesses would be reimbursed for costs associated with integrating their security camera footage with the FUSUS platform, allowing LPD to access that footage when investigating criminal activity.

FUSUS is a police technology software that integrates Flock camera images, traffic camera footage, and security camera footage from City-owned cameras into a central feed that LPD can access as needed. Homeowners and businesses are also able to integrate camera footage from their private security camera systems with LPD’s FUSUS platform. LPD pays FUSUS roughly $150,000 a year to use the platform.

You can learn more about the grant, and the FUSUS program, here.

The Council Meeting will be held Thursday, May 9th at 6pm in Council Chambers. You can attend in-person or watch live on LexTV.
