More Construction Trespassers Caught in the Act

How often has this happened to you?

This compilation video showcases three trespassing incidents on three different construction sites.

In the first video, three people are seen on a vacant construction site around three o’clock in the morning. A trained Stealth security operator contacts local police. When officers arrive at the site, the trespassers run towards an unfinished building. Our operator updates police as to the suspects’ whereabouts. The responding officers locate the individuals and arrest them.

Video two features a lone trespasser entering a building on a construction site around 3:15 a.m. A Stealth security operator activates the on-site speaker warning, then calls police. Officers arrive within minutes and apprehend the intruder.

Finally, in the third video, a male suspect jumps the perimeter fence of a site around 8:15 one night. Once inside, he unhooks the fence to let in his female companion. The monitoring operator watching the pair, activated the on-site speaker warning and contacted the police. As the suspects made their way off the property, they were intercepted by responding officers.

How Can You Keep Unwanted Visitors Out?

Trespassing is not only dangerous for the intruders but can also impact construction costs and timelines. Posting signs, enhancing lighting and adding perimeter fences can all help keep unwanted visitors out. For an added layer of protection, consider adding remote video monitoring. Surveillance cameras equipped with video analytics can alert security operators of any suspicious activity taking place on a construction site. The operator can evaluate the situation and take appropriate action.

Police departments know that when they receive a call from Stealth, there is almost certainly a crime in progress. Therefore, they typically escalate the priority level, increasing the chances that the intruders will be caught while still on the property.

Stealth also has a team of video analysts who will study hours of footage from all relevant cameras to provide a condensed clip of any incident. This proves beneficial in police and insurance investigations.
