Outdoor Security System Helps Police Locate Suspect

Posted by Amy Hite on May 31, 2017

Criminals continually sneak into commercial properties in the middle of the night. They commonly participate in copper theft, metal theft, and vandalism. One late night trespasser tried to hide from authorities on top of a UCIT client's rooftop. Unfortunately for them, a trained UCIT operator was watching the activity in real time.

Watch the Video: Rooftop Trespasser Arrested with Helicopter

At 3:38am, a trespasser walks to the back of a shopping center in Dallas, Texas. The shopping center is a UCIT client. The trespasser jumps up and grabs a ladder. A UCIT virtual security guard activates the on-site speaker. The trespasser continues to climb to the roof. The UCIT outdoor security system operator calls the Dallas Police. The operator continues to watch the activity with the on-site outdoor security system cameras. A UCIT outdoor security system relies on video analytics and human intelligence. The operators can see suspicious activity before a beam or sensor is activated.

UCIT's outdoor security system can help prevent copper theft, metal theft, vandalism, and other criminal activity.

Dallas Police arrive at the Texas shopping center and they bring helicopter support. The helicopter's search light shines on the rooftop and the ground. The trespasser is instructed to get down. Dallas Police subdue him and place him into custody.
