Those eyes belong to a Metro Nashville police officer, who is viewing camera footage on a cloud service called Fusus. A business you frequent or a private residence in your neighborhood may have voluntarily agreed to share their camera footage with MNPD via this platform. In the event of an emergency or violent crime, MNPD can tap in and hopefully catch the perpetrator in action. This all sounds great. Who among us doesn't love less crime?

The problem is that we don't actually know that the implementation of Fusus will lower crime in our city. MNPD is seeking a renewed contract to pilot this technology. Nashville's Metro Council will vote on Feb. 6 whether or not to approve this contract. Before that, we'll dive into what exactly this contract could mean for Nashville.

This episode was produced by Elizabeth Burton. Special thanks to Councilmember Courtney Johnston, Cynthia Abrams, and Nicole Williams.
