Starlight Camera Network Map

Dallas Police, partnered with Motorola and Safer Dallas, operate a live surveillance network throughout the city. Through this network, which also utilizes AI software, officers watch sections of the city in real time. The program began in fall 2019 with three cameras; in 2020, the police department added four more.

However, this isn't the only surveillance network that the city operates. As early as 2007, Dallas PD began erecting cameras in high-traffic areas. In all, there are at least 354 cameras that stream live to the Dallas Fusion Center (for more information on the Fusion Center, click here). We hope to map the locations of all these cameras; reach out if you are interested in helping! Along with the mounted cameras, DPD operates 9 mobile camera trailers. All of these cameras have mesh networking capabilities, provided by the company Firetide, which allows them to stay online by sharing network connections with one another. Below, the left column lists Starlight Camera locations. The right column has resources explaining the other camera network.
