Industrial Trespassers Lose Hide & Seek with Police
Two Las Vegas, Nevada industrial trespassers think they can escape the police. But the on-site cameras weren’t passive. They were proactively watched live by Stealth Monitoring. Police arrest the suspects and win this round of hide and seek.
An unauthorized SUV drives into an industrial property in Las Vegas. Two trespassers walk through the parking lot by warehouses and vehicles. A live surveillance operator activates the on-site speaker warning. The suspects do not leave. The security monitor calls the Las Vegas Metro police.
Office and industrial complexes are vulnerable late-night targets to thieves. There is no staff around. They often have valuable outdoor assets, from cars, trucks, and trailers to inventory protected only by a fence. Live video surveillance can watch parking lots, fences, building entrances, and loading docks.
The trespassers crawl under a group of parked trailers to hide from an oncoming police car. A PTZ Pan Tilt Zoom camera shows one man walking away and zooms in on him. PTZ cameras provide key information on suspect activity, dress, and location that surveillance operators can relay to police dispatchers.
The Las Vegas police apprehend the suspects and take them into custody.
Fences and gates provide minimal security. While they can restrict access and provide a physical barrier, they aren’t adequate deterrents for most criminals. Gates can be pushed open. Fences can be climbed, jumped over, or even knocked down. Live remote video monitoring can help protect outdoor assets by supplementing fences and gates and alerting the police of unusual activity.
