On January 15, 2021, a partnership was established between the Highland Park Police Department (HPPD) and businesses in the community to create “Project Blue Light”. By installing real-time cameras at each Blue Light location, HPPD can access and review video from police headquarters in order to improve community safety.
Project Blue Light will encourage the growth of businesses, enhance community safety, and allow HPPD to identify, hinder, and solve crime. This will also foster a public-private-community relationship, as well as keep the community members safe by using real-time monitoring of the cameras.
Thank you for your interest in Project Blue Light!
Below is a list of the steps that it takes to get involved in the program.
Step 1: Fill out an application. In the application, you will choose your camera installer, your light vendor, and your sign vendor. After you complete your application, Project Blue Light Highland Park staff will send you a confirmation email and connect you with the vendors you selected
Step 2: Audio-video experts from HPPD will meet with you and your camera installer to conduct a site survey, detailing where cameras should be installed.
Step 3: Camera installation is completed. At this time, you should be scheduling an installation date with the sign and light vendors.
Step 4: Audio-video experts from HPPD conduct a post-installation audit and ensure that the installation meets the requirements of the program. They connect the cameras from the business to HPPD.
Step 5: Congratulations! You are now a live Project Blue Light Highland Park participant!
