The States of Jersey Police sought to improve their ageing CCTV that they managed across the island’s town centre, airport and harbour, besides their headquarters-based custody suites. They also wanted to enable specific police officers to have secure access to relevant cameras to help them track suspects between the island’s key entry points, with a view to reducing crime.
After a review of VMS systems, Milestone XProtect® Corporate was chosen. Milestone enables permission-based access to images, set up and managed via Microsoft Active Directory. Milestone Inter-Connect provides resilient integration with all four XProtect® Express VMSs, which themselves manage and record video data linked to the four separate CCTV systems. Headquarters also saw an upgrade of its CCTV control room. A new six-screen video wall with 42-inch NEC Hiperwall displays high resolution images driven by XProtect Smart Wall. Operators determine which cameras are displayed on their desktop and the video wall during incidents using an XProtect user interface controlled by standard keyboard and mouse.
Jersey Police say they have been able to deliver centralised management and maintenance efficiencies, while also supporting the force’s goal of making Jersey a safer place to live in and visit.
