The residents in a comfortable South Minneapolis neighborhood were growing uneasy. A few blocks away, they had been noticing an uptick in suspicious activity at an apartment building where shady-looking characters hung out on the front stoop and large old cars with blacked-out windows were coming and going at all hours of the day. After listening to their concerns, local law enforcement set up a marked camera trailer for a few weeks to send a strong signal to possible trouble-makers and the surrounding community alike: we take dubious activity seriously and we are looking out for you.
One of the residents recently contacted Mobile Pro Systems and was happy to report a big change.
“Your tower has been there for two weeks now and there is not a sign of anyone outside. I am positively giddy and hope the police leave it there.” —South Minneapolis Resident
At Mobile Pro Systems, we know law enforcement professionals work hard to earn public trust and confidence, especially when a community reaches out for more frequent patrols and visible police presence. The Commander 3400 and our smaller, more compact Falcon 3100 camera trailers are ideal for deployment in residential areas. Powered by hybrid systems that periodically recharge the batteries, they can run continuously for up to several weeks. During this time when nervous citizens may be hyper-alert to any suspicious activity, officers have the ability to view live or recorded video prior to responding. They can then assure residents they’re monitoring the area and calm their fears when reports are quickly checked out.
