    The newest tools assisting our Investigative Team

    BODY CAMERAS is a video recording system that is typically utilized by law enforcement to record their interactions with the public or gather video evidence at crime scenes, and has been known to increase both officer and citizen accountability.

    SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS may be installed in schools to monitor visitors, track unacceptable student behavior and maintain a record of evidence in the event of a crime. There are some restrictions on installation, with cameras not being installed in an area where there is a "reasonable expectation of privacy", such as bathrooms, gym locker areas and private offices (unless consent by the office occupant is given). Cameras are generally acceptable in hallways, parking lots, front offices where students, employees, and parents come and go, gymnasiums, cafeterias, supply rooms and classrooms.

    Visitor Management System software quickly scans and processes your visitors state issued ID. Our software date and time stamps every visit. The system archives all the details of the visit, including date and time, photograph of the visitor, who they are there to see, and what their destination is in the school. If the image that is retrieved from the state issued photo ID does not clearly represent the current appearance of your visitor, a Webcam can be used to quickly capture a current image. Easily logout the visitor when they leave.

    The system also checks Instantaneous for Sex Offender and compares the identity of your visitor with a national database of over 704,000 registered sex offenders. In the event a positive match occurs, the software displays detailed information about the actual sex offender. This information includes mug shot, height, weight, eye color, crimes committed, aliases, and bodily markings such as scars or tattoos. This detailed information helps prevents the chance for a false positive.
