An extension of the Actor Prolog language with the ability of distributed logic programming is demonstrated. This language extension is developed for experimenting with distributed logic programming and declarative agent approach to intelligent visual surveillance. An approach to resolving the contradiction between the strong typing of Actor Prolog and the independence of software agents is proposed. Remote calls of Actor Prolog predicates are implemented using the object-oriented features of Actor Prolog, translation of Actor Prolog to Java, and the Java RMI protocol. An example of logic program communication based on the remote predicate calls is examined.
