Olsztyn courthouse

CCTV Handbook 2012 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Government and Parastatal (Industry)

The district court of Olsztyn, Poland’s newly built courthouse is situated in the immediate neighbourhood of the historical part of the city. Since the building’s completion in 2009, it has been established as judiciary’s primary offices, housing over 70 judges, several assistants and more than 200 office workers. The building consists of seven floors, containing courtrooms of different sizes, specially assigned areas with rooms for both judges and assistants, as well as office areas for the court’s employees. A basement pre-trial holding area is also foreseen in which people awaiting the start of their trial will be kept.

Prior to the actual construction of the site, it was clear given its status that state-of-the-art security alarms, access control and surveillance cameras would need to be fitted. The site developer realised the vital importance of building a robust security apparatus into the fabric of the building from the design stage. To achieve this, the team wanted to work with a highly credible and knowledgeable partner with experience of collaborating in a development project of this scale. A short list of candidates was put together which included UTC Fire and Security. UTC Fire & Security has been invited to pitch and ultimately won the contract.

Integrated access and surveillance

UTC Fire & Security suggested the addition of at least two independent surveillance stations to the building design. These hubs enable configuration and control of alarm and access control systems as well as real-time video monitoring via the CCTV system.

UTC Fire & Security worked with a local contractor to install a range of exceptional technologies that help to guarantee the security of the judiciary and judicial processes. At the centre of the alarm and access control system are eight ATS Master panels. The surveillance stations supervise over 700 motion detectors. The advanced access control system secures over 40 doors and is based on ATS1250 controllers, offering exclusive access to card holders.

In order to build the CCTV solution, over 90 cameras were connected to eight high-capacity recorders. A GeNav application offers the perfect solution for both real-time monitoring and reviewing past events on the archive system. A visual matrix completes the video system. The entire system is managed by means of the Alliance software platform which integrates the UTC Fire & Security solution and enables easy on-going management in an intuitive graphical user interface.
