Video surveillance is a common security tool used in every kind of business. Who hasn’t been greeted by a “Smile—you’re on camera!” sign posted on a convenience store door? It makes sense to inform patrons they’re being recorded because the cameras inside the store may be concealed in the ceiling or tucked into a corner where they wouldn’t be noticed. Letting visitors know their activity is being monitored puts them on alert: if you steal or damage our property, we have surveillance video to show law enforcement.
MPS Commander 3400 surveillance trailers send a visual message trespassers can’t ignore: “You’re on camera and there will be consequences.”
Large utility and construction sites, of course, don’t have a front door. At best, they may be encircled with a fence; but usually they are wide open which makes them appealing to criminals. This is especially true during downtimes when heavy equipment is idle and stacks of building materials are nearby.
Even if a construction site is surrounded by strong barrier fences with locked gates, those are no match for a determined person armed with a heavy-duty bolt-cutter. Where there are profits to be had and little or no apparent risk of getting caught, thieves will not think twice about going for it.
On the other hand, when one or more MPS Commander 3400 surveillance trailers are deployed at a construction site, intruders cannot ignore the message that security is taken very seriously there. The Commander’s formidable size and towering mast leave no doubt that a site has strong defense measures in place. This is a camera trailer that’s meant to be seen. In practical terms that means criminals understand there’s a much higher chance they’ll be discovered, identified, arrested and prosecuted. And if they decide to trespass anyway, motion sensors placed around the site will set off startling lights and alarms. Then authorized personnel will immediately receive a notification they can pass on to law enforcement.
