Crime-fighting surveillance

CCTV Handbook 2012 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Government and Parastatal (Industry)

Uncovering criminal activities at various NYC agencies.

It has not been easy in the New York area, where there has been a consistently high volume of criminal activities around the perimeters of developments and in elevator cabs operated by New York City Municipalities.

“There are low to no lighting around the perimeters, making it prime criminal targets at night. Various NYC Agencies & Authorities have been concerned with security issues in elevator cabs as well, as cameras were easily and quickly vandalised in such environments.” David Gonzalez, area specialist for Tri-Ed/Northern Video Distribution, explains. “The NYC Agencies & Authorities were looking to install a cutting-edge surveillance system that would help them successfully prosecute criminal offenders, especially under poor lighting conditions and in vandal prone areas.”

Gonzalez evaluated the Bosch cameras and discovered that the bullet cameras reliably captured high-quality prosecutable images under poor lighting conditions, while the Bosch Corner Mount No Grip Cameras were highly resistant to vandalism.

“The EX36 and WZ20 cameras have enabled me to collaborate with integrators at these municipalities to assist with the video surveillance in the most challenging areas. The Agencies & Authorities are now able to work with police departments and district attorneys to successfully prosecute criminal activities at buildings and developments.”

The Bosch Extreme series Corner Mount No Grip and Bullet Cameras are precision engineered to deliver prosecutable videos in tough environments and under poor lighting conditions.

* EX36 Corner Mount No Grip cameras’ steel construction can protect against even the most brutal attempt to destroy, detach, or disable the camera.

* WZ20 bullet cameras deliver 45 m of high performance night vision.
