Protection on every corner with Axis cameras

The Bucaramanga Metropolitan Police, in Colombia, increased the sense of security after installing new surveillance equipment

"For the Government of Santander, it’s very important to provide the National Police and security fronts with an integrated system that leads us to meet and strengthen law enforcement monitoring and response capabilities, which in the end improves logistics, physical and technical conditions for authorities.” Mario Andrés Castañeda, Secretary of the Interior of Santander.


In order to strengthen a comprehensive security plan under way in the department of Santander, in Colombia, the Bucaramanga Metropolitan Police identified the need for an integrated protection and prevention system based on HD cameras to respond to particular needs of endurance, quality imaging and connectivity.


Considering the location of the equipment and conditions they would be subject to, it was decided to reinforce security in four municipalities of the department by contracting Focus Ingeniería, an Axis systems integrator. The company installed 16 AXIS Q6044-E Network Cameras, which are built to withstand tough weather conditions and even acts of vandalism while providing high-resolution images.


After the implementation of Axis network cameras, the population of Santander now has an integrated system focused on protection and prevention, which has achieved effective results by discouraging drug traffic and elevating the number of arrests. These initiatives have thus increased the sense of security in the Department.
