With national crime trends changing and evolving, the technology being used to prevent it also needs to develop. Business Insight 3 (Bi3), experts in human, vehicle and object detection, invited Designing Out Crime Officers to a two-day event called ‘Eyes Everywhere’ to showcase their latest innovations in crime prevention.
Eyes Everywhere was run over the course of two days, with one day dedicated to the North and another to the South. The northern event was hosted by Business Insight 3 (Bi3), while the southern one was hosted by Bi3 partners, Arc Monitoring. The days also saw supports from Encompass Security Solutions.
The event united Designing Out Crime Officers (DOCOs) from Police Forces across the nation, along with officers from the National Cyber Security Centre’s Sociotechnical Security Group (StSG) to get a better understanding of video analytics technology, as well as learning how the CCTV monitoring process works. Additionally, it aimed to give DOCOs the chance to connect with organisations in the CCTV security and monitoring supply chain industries.
Bi3’s objective was to expose attendees to aspects of CCTV security they may not be familiar with, and that by providing a deeper understanding of available technology, its applications, and the supply chain, DOCOs could better inform and advise the individuals and organisations they work with.
At the Bi3 site, an initial presentation was given in which each of the hosts demonstrated their place in the supply chain and the benefits they offer to end users. This was followed by a technology showcase.
At the Arc Monitoring day, a similar format was followed with a presentation, a technology showcase, and a tour of the monitoring station. This allowed DOCOs to see what the monitoring stations observe when alerts are triggered and how they respond to incidents.
