Indiana Jail Locks in on Video Reliability

The Madison County Jail in Anderson, IN,  is 40 miles northeast of Indianapolis. Built in 1984, the jail has a capacity of 207 offenders.

MISSION: RELIABLE AND EASY-TO-USE VIDEO ARCHIVING/SEARCHING

The Madison County Jail in Anderson, IN had issues with the reliability of its video surveillance system. When security staff went looking for video evidence from a specific camera, video from a completely different camera in the jail would sometimes pop up. On other occasions, there would be no video at all. Reliability, ease-of-use, and video archiving capacity were critical requirements for the new system needed.

SOLUTION: MARCH NETWORKS VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM

The March Networks video surveillance system installed by Convergint Technologies included state-of-the-art 9000 Series IP Recorders, ME4 Series IP cameras, and Command Enterprise video management software. The recorders’ eight removable hard drives and 80 TB of storage capacity allow the jail to comply with a County ordinance requiring five years of video storage.

“Convergint did a good job of balancing retention and video quality, which was important because of the county’s requirement for five years of video storage,” said Commander Tyler Jugg, Madison County Jail. “They were able to adjust the IP camera settings to get excellent quality video, while also making sure that we had the hard drive space we needed, because in a facility like ours, retention is just as important as clarity.”

RESULT: AVAILABILITY OF VIDEO EVIDENCE 

Higher quality video, increased archiving capability, and real-time health monitoring ensure the availability of video evidence required by the jail to investigate incidents, deter violence, and keep correctional officers safe.
