The shooting at the Carmike Wynnsong theater on Christmas sent shock waves through the community, and now, the theater has made a deal with police in an effort to increase communication.
The Wynnsong has agreed to give Mobile Police access to its existing surveillance system if in the event disorderly or violent activity occurs.
The Wynnsong’s cameras will be added to more than 3,600 feeds that MPD already has access to through Project Shield, an initiative that began last June.
When police presence is needed immediately on the scene, Project Shield will serve as the eyes inside and the eyes around the exterior of the facility.
“I am confident that the measures taken by Wynnsong will provide for a safe environment in which people can enjoy,” said Chief James Barber of the Mobile Police Department. “They are commended for their willingness to work with MPD.”
