There are more than 350 million CCTV surveillance cameras in operation worldwide, recording petabytes of video footage. This video can be used by law enforcement to apprehend criminals, solve crimes, or manage high-crime areas.
The challenge for police is to be able to quickly and accurately sort through hours of video footage. Unfortunately, quick and accurate video analysis is hard to achieve using just people. Luckily, there are several types of technology-based video analysis options available for law enforcement that can be used for all law enforcement needs: security operations, risk management, operational control and behavior analytics.
No matter which type of video analysis system you choose, all systems should have a rapid review and search process, a user-friendly interface, analytical tools specific to law enforcement and the ability to track targets.
