(PRWEB UK) 21 November 2013
It has been reported by the Stoke Sentinel on November 15 in the article titled ‘‘Unique’ CCTV Cameras in Kidsgrove will give Police Access to Footage on their Mobile Phones’ that new CCTV will allow footage to be accessed by police on their mobile phones, assisting police community support officers with their daily duties.
Allowing officers to access the footage through their mobile phones is thought to mean wider coverage and quicker response time to incidences. It is hoped that the new CCTV security systems, which are building on existing systems, will be an improvement on the existing cameras which were based at the General Traffic car shop in the town. This location meant that dealing with crimes and complaints at night or on Sundays were impeded by the inability to access footage immediately, as the shop was closed. The new systems, which were paid for with £6000 of the community fund from Councillor Margaret Astle of Staffordshire County Council, will allow police to access footage remotely.
Speaking of the new CCTV system, Damian Wright, a Police Community Support Officer in Kidsgrove, told the Stoke Sentinel that:
“The CCTV doesn’t just cover the street, it goes all around the alleys and behind the shops, which is really important as it provides a more complete, 360 degrees coverage.”
He added that the new systems would relieve pressure on the police and help officers with their daily duties.
As experts in CCTV security systems, AlertSystems closely follow developments in the industry and so were interested in the new CCTV systems to be installed in Kidsgrove. A spokesperson for the company shared their thoughts:
“It is welcome news that a new CCTV security system which uses the latest technology is to be installed in Kidsgrove. CCTV can play a vital role in helping police with their investigations and, with this in mind, police being able to access footage quickly and easily can increase response times and help officers to bring their investigations to successful conclusions.
For businesses, the installation of IP Network CCTV cameras can allow footage to be accessed and stored remotely. This allows business owners to view and manage the CCTV footage more easily than standard CCTV, allowing more effective management and quick access to footage. Rapid response times can be vital to police investigations, and so being able to provide CCTV footage quickly after an incident can be important in bringing those responsible to justice.”
