Apartment surveillance cameras are part of a customized security solution. Trained apartment security operators can proactively watch residential properties via the on-site surveillance cameras. As a result, they can help deter and prevent criminal activity such as trespassing and property damage. In one incident, residential security operators helped Dallas Police locate an armed suspect at a Class A apartment complex.

Gunman Arrested at Class A Apartment Complex

At 7:58pm local time, the suspect entered the fitness area of a Class A apartment complex. This multifamily apartment is located in Dallas, Texas. Residential spaces are categorized by Class A, Class B, or Class C properties. Class A multifamily apartment complexes are the highest grade properties. The suspect grabbed a fitness mat and walked upstairs. The trained security operators followed his movements via the apartment surveillance cameras. The suspect plugged in his charger. It appeared that something surprised him. He stumbled back. The suspect pulled out a handgun. He slowly approached the entrance. An apartment surveillance operator called the Dallas Police.

The suspect continued his workout. He pulled out his gun a second time. After he completed his workout, the suspect packed his gun into his backpack and exited the community area. Apartment surveillance cameras saw responding officers arrive at the Class A residential apartment. The responding police officers were armed. Dallas Police were able to locate the suspect and brought him back to the fitness facility. The suspect was taken into custody. One Dallas Police officer showed the suspect where the apartment surveillance cameras were located. The police officers took the suspect off the property.
