Handheld CCTV

Public Servant Daily:

Glasgow City Council has launched an initiative that will enable police to see live CCTV images on handheld devices.

As part of the council’s new community scheme Glasgow Community Safety Services, this is aimed at tackling anti-social behaviour. Under the scheme, live images will be transmitted to police and security personnel with handheld devices over GPRS and 3G networks.

The project has been managed by Systems Integrators RACAM Security & Communications, with the company Essential Viewing supplying the technology to transmit the CCTV images.

The partnership between Glasgow City Council and Strathclyde Police is the first of its kind in the UK, and brings together 500 staff and £25m of assets which will be directed towards the city’s campaign against anti-social behaviour.
