Putting the Pieces Together with Citywide Surveillance

Citywide surveillance provides real-time situation updates for law enforcement and emergency responders.
Citywide surveillance provides real-time situation updates for law enforcement and emergency responders.

The hours following the 2020 Christmas Day explosion in downtown Nashville were filled with uncertainty and so many questions. Who carried this out and why? Were terrorist groups involved? Could there be more attacks on the way?

Facing piles of debris to sift through and an anxious public, local law enforcement could at least assure the community of one thing: there were hours of recorded video from police surveillance cameras to review and some clues would certainly turn up there.

Video surveillance helps agencies deter, disrupt and investigate crime incidents every day. But when the unthinkable happens, having recorded data from a citywide mobile surveillance network can save time and even lives. This is because today’s video management systems have high-tech forensic search tools allowing investigators to use smart functions and find relevant images as quickly as possible. Viewing stored or real-time recordings from multiple locations can be used to:

  •  Create a timeline of activity prior to and following the incident.
  •  Identify vehicles and persons of interest approaching or leaving the crime scene.
  •  Uncover suspicious activity occurring elsewhere which might go undetected.
  •  Scan for victims or bystanders who may be hurt or in danger.
