Results
With the RADWIN wireless video surveillance network, the
Huntington Beach police department now receives high quality
video, enabling it to rapidly detect and respond to acts of crime .
Video footage is also used in the investigation of crimes.
Shortly after the cameras were installed, a man was caught on
video stealing. A broadcast-quality image was sent to the local
news, and the man was subsequently spotted and arrested.
Video evidence has also been used to investigate more serious
crimes, including an assault where the victim was knocked
unconscious. No witnesses came forward, but the police
monitoring the video were able to use a description of the
suspects clothing to make an arrest.
A wireless IP-based system was the best and most
affordable choice for the city. Installing a fiber network
would have been simply cost prohibitive.
