Case Studies:

London Borough of Ealing Council

Background

Ealing Council operates a public safety CCTV scheme in partnership with the Metropolitan Police.

There is a 24-hour control room, which monitors and records images from CCTV systems in streets, off-street car parks and housing estates in the borough.

All Ealing Council's CCTV activities are carried out in accordance with the law and relevant codes of practice.  

The Challenge

Ealing Council has undertaken a number of initiatives to assist with the control of antisocial behaviour across the borough. These initiatives include Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABCs), Antisocial Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) and Dispersal Orders.

In conjunction with these activities, and to support evidence gathering and prosecutions, the Council sought a portable surveillance solution that would allow them to target hotspot locations where antisocial behaviour was prevalent.

The cameras, as well as being a visable deterrent, would need to provide high definition images to ensure prosecutions would be possible.

WCCTV Ealing CCTV

The Solution

Following a successful trial, Ealing Council deployed a number of WCCTV's 4G IR Speed Dome + NPR units which have been integrated to work with Tyco's Mosiac video management platform.

WCCTV’s combined NPR and Redeployable CCTV system utilises the additional output channels of either a WCCTV 4G IR Speed Dome or WCCTV 4G HD Speed Dome to integrate a specialised High Definition Number Plate Recognition Camera.

This unique all-in-one rapid-deployment surveillance system combines all of the benefits of truly redeployable CCTV with advanced NPR technology.

The system harnesses the wireless transmission (4G/3G/Wi-Fi), local recording (up to 4TB) and 360° PTZ field of vision of the WCCTV Speed Dome range to provide a complete situational overview, while the NPR camera delivers crystal-clear images of number plates in all weather and lighting conditions.

Tyco's Mosiac platform offers the Council central video surveillance control platform that connects to their range of WCCTV redeployable CCTV cameras and the fixed CCTV systems throughout the borough.

The Result

Antisocial behaviour is not easily resolved, however the Ealing Council's Safer Communities team's implementation of WCCTV's systems has helped ease the burden upon victims and witnesses of such activities.

The combined use of WCCTV 4G IR Speed Dome + NPR, in conjunction with Tyco's Mosiac platform, provides the Council with 1080p video, suitable for criminal prosecutions, as well as a visual deterrent to help prevent antisocial behaviour throughout the borough.
