A local authority purchased 3 re-deployable cameras to tackle anti-social behaviour, they had no experience in this area and were unable to use the cameras for the purpose.
As the authority had no experience with investigating these issues or purchasing the right equipment they got in touch with us.
After understanding their needs we were able to source the right CCTV solution on their behalf, we also now fully manage the system, deployments and investigations liaising with the relevant police departments or authority providing a full end to end solution for our client. This is providing the results they need along with large budget savings.
