Hikvision, the global leader in innovative, award-winning video surveillance products and solutions, and Eagle Eye Networks, a cloud security camera video management system leader, have partnered with the Lawrence, Massachusetts Police Department to create a mobile surveillance solution. Hikvision cameras installed in a police van are linked to the Eagle Eye Security Camera Video Management System (VMS) to provide high quality, secure remote access to live and recorded video. This installation allows the police to provide cutting edge video surveillance in areas that need it the most, while eliminating expensive infrastructure.
When the Lawrence Police Department noticed that the city’s unlawful activity periodically changed locations rather than remain rooted in a fixed area, they decided that a mobile unit would be the most efficient and cost-effective solution to ensure safety. The van is parked in “trouble spots” throughout the city; officers at the police station use the video feeds as a tool to monitor activity, as do patrol cars in the vicinity of where the van is parked. The ability to securely access and view video across multiple sites in a single view decreases response time for police officers in the field.
