TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Since the Sky Cop cameras first arrived in the Glass City, the Toledo Police Department has wanted to give private entities the opportunity to link their cameras up to the police system.

That day has arrived and Moody Manor is the first to hook up with the department.

The process began back in August, and just last week, the cameras at Moody Manor started rolling and streaming right to the Real Time Crime Center at the Safety Building. There are 41 cameras on the Moody Manor property, with 18 of them outside and marked with TPD stickers.

A year ago last August, bullets ripped through an apartment at Moody Manor, killing 1-year-old Keondra Hooks and seriously injuring her sister. A little over a year later, the complex has installed the cameras that will be monitored by police.

"We did learn something from a tragedy," said Toledo Mayor Mike Bell. "When we were dealing with the Moody Manor issues, that was really a bad, bad day – and what we vowed to do was to try to make life and the quality of life there better."

Police Chief Derrick Diggs says other private entities have been in contact with the department looking for similar service. More of that should happen in 2014.

    Volunteers from Flood Control, Wild at Heart, the Tucson Audubon Society and Tucson Electric Power built 16 new burrows using plastic buckets, tubing, and PVC pipes to mimic natural burrows. These burrows were then covered in rock to provide additional protection to the habitat entrances.
