Protecting public property is a growing concern and a difficult job for municipal government. Progressive Surveillance Tech has extensive experience working with Cities, Towns, Townships, and Villages to provide video surveillance systems to monitor public assets for incidents of vandalism, unauthorized access, or other threats that can be used as court evidence.
The investment in surveillance security allows for a reduction in liability through 24 hour monitoring of activity in at-risk areas. IP-based video surveillance is one of the most useful, flexible, and cost-effective tools for ensuring public safety. In fact, one study measured the savings of a municipality at $4.30 for every dollar spent on surveillance. * Your surveillance system can provide information for first responders to act quickly and efficiently by assessing needs before deploying resources.
Progressive Surveillance Tech, founded by retired Michigan State Police Trooper Thomas Westgate, has over 25 years of experience meeting the surveillance needs of State Police posts throughout the State of Michigan. We stay current with state requirements for law enforcement agency surveillance, and provide compliant wireless, IP, remote, and self-contained camera and audio systems to ensure proper collection of critical information in the investigation process.
Our schools should be safe havens for learning, however, incidents of theft and violence, including student violence against teachers, are on the rise in America's schools. School administrators are looking for ways to increase building security, and are finding video surveillance to be a useful, flexible, and cost-effective tool for gaining information regarding detrimental activities occurring on school property.
Vandalism, violence toward students and faculty members, and theft are just some of the incidents that are on the rise in our schools. In a five-year period, a 36% increase was recorded in criminal incidents reported in U.S. schools. During the 2011-12 school year, more teachers reported being threatened or attacked with injury than in previous years. Without recorded evidence, it is difficult to deliver effective consequences for the actions of these individuals.
Once installed in schools, surveillance cameras are used not only for security from outside invaders, but also for monitoring inside threats and student behavior. Digital capture and storage capabilities make footage easy to access, view, and share. The shift from analog to IP, cameras means that surveillance footage can also be easily shared with local law enforcement.
Cameras with 360-degree visual capability allow users to see an entire classroom to get a more comprehensive view of not only adverse activity, but also allows a view of both the teacher giving a lesson and of student engagement. As a result the ability to monitor the halls and classrooms where students and teachers spend a large portion of their day, seems to create a sense of increasing safety for school communities.
