High definition: two words added before video camera, has reduced crime in the Oklahoma County jail by 90 percent. Saving the state almost $10 million yearly, these cameras took the place of hiring 200 new officers. Executive Vice President of Avigilon, Byran Schmode says the system can alert in real time and detect problems as they happen.
“So we can cover wider scenes with more detail, thus eliminating a lot of infrastructure costs while providing a more valuable solution that going to give the evidence that’s needed.”
The new system can clearly identify inmates, cutting investigation time down from weeks to minutes and it allows them to watch video in real time on smart phones and tablets.
