Crime reduction and emergency responsiveness provided by public security surveillance system

County police turn analog system into high-performance IP-Surveillance solution using Axis video encoders

"Our public security surveillance system, based on the AXIS 241Q Video Server/Encoder, is a complete anti-burglar network throughout the county. Video of suspicious situations captured by cameras are immediately sent to our duty command center to expedite investigation. Moreover, during typhoons or other natural disasters, the system effectively provides first-line monitoring for our emergency response center." Duty command center, county police bureau.


A priority for city- and county-level police bureaus is to make good use of advanced technology to proactively reduce crime and speed up investigations. A county-level police bureau in Central Taiwan has therefore developed a public security network surveillance system based on the county's special terrain to effectively safeguard the county.


The network video surveillance solution, based on the AXIS 241Q Video Server/Encoder, is deployed on access roads throughout the county and at major intersections in townships. 800 analog cameras have been migrated to network video using more than 300 Axis video encoders. Video images captured by the cameras at designated times are transmitted by ADSL to the duty command center of the county policy bureau for centralized management of road conditions throughout the county.


Video gathered by the county's public security network surveillance system helps the police compare and match relevant information much faster than before. It facilitates the analysis of important details to decide investigation directions and expedite investigation. Moreover, monitoring cameras and existing alarm devices in community neighborhoods now form a complete audio-video surveillance system that effectively enhances public security by proactive crime prevention.
