Another prison upgrade contract for Thales

August 2005 News

CCTV surveillance technology specialist, Thales Advanced Engineering, has won a second prison upgrading contract worth R284 000 which included the manufacture of a digital on-line surveillance system based on 100 cameras.

The system has been installed at Malmesbury Prison in the Boland, north-west of Wellington, by JFE, a Cape Town-based electronic systems installer and integrator. The installation and integration of the system into the prison's existing security system met specifications and requirements laid down by consulting engineers C.A. du Toit and Thlokomelo Management, also of Cape Town.

Recently, Thales Advanced Engineering completed another digital online CCTV surveillance system comprising 112 cameras for the Goodwood Prison in Cape Town.

Thales managing director, Dr Bennie Coetzer, said online digital surveillance systems were proving to be a cost-effective and reliable means of improving internal and external security at such institutions. "The inherent reliability and flexibility of digital technology and the ability to integrate such technology into existing systems add value for prison management."
