Gwinnett Place CID partners with Paradigm Security Services, a private security firm with highly trained private security personnel, to keep the Gwinnett Place area secure. The Paradigm Security Services officers monitor Gwinnett Place businesses daily to ensure owners and visitors feel safe day and night. The CID’s community patrols work in close coordination with Gwinnett County Police.
The CID has formed a multi-year partnership with Flock Safety, the only automatic license plate reading (ALPR) camera system built specifically for neighborhoods, businesses, and law enforcement. Under the partnership, 63 ALPR cameras have been installed throughout the Gwinnett Place area. The solar-powered, wireless cameras have the ability to quickly and easily capture the evidence police need to track a lead. Timestamps are also included in recordings, making it easy to search for a specific vehicle. The cameras are one of Gwinnett Place CID’s largest investments. The partnership reflects one of the CID’s key focus areas in enhancing public safety.
Additionally, the Gwinnett Place CID maintains the appearance of 10 miles of area roadways and the I-85 interchanges at Pleasant Hill Road and Steve Reynolds Boulevard with CID-funded landscape crews in the area five days a week. Recently tabulated metrics point to 2020 being another record year for maintenance and safety efforts spearheaded by the CID. The CID managed hundreds of incidents/issues ranging from non-functioning street lights and damaged street signs to graffiti and illegal sign removal. In the area of trash removal alone, CID staff and crews cleared 48.82 tons of debris and removed 1,977 illegal signs from area roadways in Gwinnett’s central business district during 2020.
The CID is home to the Gwinnett County Police Department’s Central Precinct headquarters. The CID is fortunate to have strong working relationships with the Gwinnett County Police Department, Gwinnett County Department of Transportation, Gwinnett County Department of Planning and Development, Gwinnett County Code Enforcement and the public utilities of Georgia Power and Jackson EMC.
