The round was led by Meritech Capital and general partner Alex Clayton will join the Flock Safety board alongside Ilya Sukhar of Matrix Partners.

Led by Garrett Langley, founder and CEO, Flock Safety is a public safety-as-a-service company. Its first product was a license plate reading camera built specifically for neighborhoods. The technology company has since expanded the suite of products to include better ways to collect objective evidence, gain insights from that evidence, and send that evidence to the right detective at the right time. The Wing integration, launched in early October, is one such product that transforms hours of IP camera video footage into searchable evidence, letting a detective find a suspect vehicle by make, model, color, or unique features like roof rack, trailer hitch, tinted windows, and more.
Flock Safety technology is already in use by police to drop crime rates and recover stolen property for neighborhoods, businesses, and police departments in more than 1,000 cities across the US.
