When trespassers access a construction site, they can undermine the valuable work that’s been done. Without an effective way to deter them, uninvited visitors could cause significant damage not only to your project, but to themselves, as well.
Each of the construction sites in the following video utilize Stealth’s proactive remote video monitoring solution. Because we were watching in real time, damage and loss was minimized, and in most cases, prevented altogether.
Around 11:30 one night, a trespasser was spotted making his way around a construction site. One of Stealth’s trained security personnel activated the on-site speaker warning. Because the suspect ignored the warning, our monitoring operator called to dispatch police and continued to follow his movements with a Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera.
Our security professional was able to give officers a description of the trespasser, including where he was located on the site. Within minutes, police were on the scene. Officers intercepted the perpetrator and took him into custody.
Right around 1:30 in the morning, a Stealth Monitoring security operator observed a male individual wearing a dark-colored hoodie jacket, pants and a backpack sneak onto a construction site. Our monitoring operator activated an audio warning and called police. The intruder then entered one of the portable toilets on the site and remained inside.
Our security professional provided police dispatch with a description of the individual and where he was located. When responding officers arrived they knew right where to find the hidden trespasser, whom they promptly arrested.
On a cold winter night, just before 11:00, two people were observed climbing over the perimeter fence of a construction site. The pair entered the building under construction. One of our trained monitoring operators was watching and contacted police, giving them a description of the intruders.
When responding officers arrived a short time later, they entered the building to find the two suspects and placed them under arrest.
Very early one morning, our cameras picked up an individual entering a construction site. While one of our monitoring operators was contacting police, the trespasser grabbed a leaf blower. The intruder was attempting to leave the site as officers were arriving.
No matter what motivates a trespasser to enter a construction site, the outcome could be the same –potential downtime and financial loss. One of the best ways to help prevent criminal activity on your site is to make it challenging for trespassers to not only enter, but also remain.
Stealth Monitoring’s remote video surveillance has helped improve security for hundreds of construction sites across North America. Trained security operators, safely located in remote locations, watch live security cameras to help catch activity in progress.
When suspicious activity is spotted, our monitoring professionals can quickly assess the situation and determine the best course of action. This could be activating an on-site speaker to warn the intruders they are being watched, as well as calling to dispatch police. Our operators can also stay on the line with officers to provide real-time updates, which was the case in each of the above incidents.
