Video surveillance always has been a critical component in enabling security and ensuring public safety: from preventing incidents by monitoring live feeds to supporting investigations by combing through recordings for video evidence. With the introduction of Video Content Analytics (VCA) technology, the value of video footage has become exponentially greater. The ability to efficiently and effectively review and analyze video is a gamechanger for law enforcement and private security agencies.
It is critical for law enforcement to be able to effectively and efficiently review and respond to events recorded by video surveillance. This eBook will discuss how Video Content Analytics are enabling law enforcement and security agencies to leverage video for productive review, proactive response and deriving predictive analytics from video content.
The Hartford PD is using BriefCam to solve crimes it could never have solved before.
After a fatal shooting at a nightclub, the only lead was witness descriptions of the suspect and the vehicle. With BriefCam, the HPD searched days of video prior to the incident to identify similar vehicles, and then zoomed in to see the driver’s face. They matched the suspect and the vehicle, using video that was taken at a red light hours before the crime. Based on this information, the HPD was able to get a search warrant, swab the suspect for DNA, and confirm a DNA match to evidence from the crime scene. Without the ability to rapidly search days of footage from multiple nearby cameras, this suspect might not have been caught.
