Outdoor public events–such as festivals, parades, and concerts–offer great cultural, business, and entertainment value to their local communities. But they could also present potential safety threats. Large groups of people can mean overcrowding, which in turn increases the probability for vandalism, altercations, and even violence. There are several organizational and technological tools that can help law enforcement maximize their efforts in securing large-scale public gatherings. Video surveillance is one such technology. By providing better situational awareness, video surveillance helps law enforcement officers enhance monitoring, verify situations, promptly identify threats, and improve response time.
Due to the temporary nature and varying environments of public events, effective video surveillance tools have to be easy to transport and mount. Thanks to years of experience designing citywide surveillance solutions for dozens of police departments, Total Recall’s designers recognized the challenges related to installing and transporting video surveillance equipment. This expertise enabled Total Recall to design its patented line of CrimeEye-RD Rapid Deployment solutions and its newest CrimeEye-RD-2 stand-alone solution,–portable products intended specifically for law enforcement’s temporary surveillance needs.
