DETROIT (AP) - Detroit is expanding monitoring of real-time video surveillance as part of an effort to reduce crime with help from McDonald’s fast food restaurants and others.

Officials on Monday announced an update to “Project Green Light,” which earlier included a partnership with several gas stations to send live footage to police.

The program is being expanded to more than 20 locations, including 11 McDonald’s, liquor stores and additional gas stations. Using a system from Motorola Solutions, multiple video feeds can be seen on one screen and high-definition images are shared.

Those involved in the project says it’s helped police quickly identify suspects and speed the pace of arrests for weapons crimes and carjackings.

They say that “Project Green Light” signs at gas stations also are useful as a deterrent to crime.
