Bringing Project Green Light to Corktown
Rocket Fiber is proud to have partnered with several businesses in the Corktown neighborhood to create a Project Green Light Commercial Corridor in coordination with the Detroit Police Department. Mayor Mike Duggan and Police Chief James Craig announced a new cluster of businesses in Corktown that have taken on Green Light, which marks the expansion of the Detroit Police Department’s high-tech crime reduction program.
A half-dozen of Corktown’s most well-known establishments along Michigan Avenue, have signed on as partners in the innovative and successful public safety program run by the Detroit Police Department.
As a part of Project Green Light, each partnering business in the Corktown program has installed exterior cameras that feed live video back to the City’s Real Time Crime Center, which is staffed 24/7 by DPD personnel.
The Corktown partner businesses have entered into a three-year agreement to receive high-definition cameras (including installation and maintenance), cloud storage of video for up to 30 days and internet connectivity. Businesses may pay anywhere between $200 and $300 monthly for the services, depending on their size, the number of cameras and their Internet Service Provider.
As a Detroit-based internet and technology provider, Rocket Fiber has been honored to work the Corktown businesses to facilitate the installation of Green Light Cameras and internet connectivity. Rocket Fiber will provide ongoing service maintenance for those sites and other existing clients on Michigan Avenue.
“Rocket Fiber is honored to partner with the City of Detroit and these Corktown Green Light partners to help provide a safer place for Detroiters and visitors alike in the Corktown neighborhood,” said Marc Hudson, Co-founder and CEO at Rocket Fiber. “We have always sought to create a socially supportive fiber network for everyone. Knowing that our technology is helping to service our community follows the mission of our organization, where we always strive to provide the best possible product to the City we call home.”
