LA County Jails Add 2,500 High-Definition IP Cameras

Published by Ellen on September 30, 2013 12:06 PM

Housing nearly 20,000 inmates per day, Los Angeles County's eight penitentiaries have to maintain the highest level of security. To ensure these facilities are under close watch, the Los Angeles Police Department have gone to great lengths deploy thousands of surveillance cameras. As part of the new expansion, the LAPD is in the process of building a centralized surveillance system by upgrading to IP video technology. The surveillance program, which kicked off in 2011, will add 2,500 IP cameras to the mix, all with HD resolution.

The internal network storage system holds over three petabytes of video, allowing police to go in and scrutinize video up to several months after an alleged incident. In addition to strengthening physical security in all eight jails, the expanded surveillance program is intended to look for and catch cases of staff misconduct as to avoid costly law suits.
