Trespasser Arrested Inside Building Under Construction

Posted by Ryan Cox on February 22, 2021

In this month’s video, our operators directed police to the exact location where a trespasser was hiding out on a site.

Just before 9 p.m., an individual was seen forcing his way through the fence panel of a construction site. The trespasser proceeded towards the building under construction. He entered through the open doorway and remained out of camera view.

A Stealth Monitoring security operator was watching and contacted local authorities. Our operator gave police a description, including the suspect’s whereabouts. When officers arrived, they located the intruder inside the building. They placed him under arrest and escorted him off the site.

Remote Video Monitoring to Help Deter Trespassers

Construction sites can be intriguing to the public, but as you know, they can be extremely dangerous. There could be ditches, power lines and other hazards that pose serious safety risks.

Remote video monitoring can help keep unwanted visitors from hurting themselves and your project. Trained security operators, watching analytics-based cameras, can monitor your entire site when you’re not there. If the technology in the cameras picks up suspicious activity, it will alert the monitoring operator who can then assess the situation and take action.

In addition to providing security, cameras can also be used as powerful project management tools. Project managers and site supervisors can use camera footage and live access to see multiple parts of their site at once, which is particularly helpful when overseeing multiple projects in various locations. An advanced service provider will also be capable of providing software and video review services, which can be helpful for everything from solving daytime theft to determining how many hours a subcontractor was physically on site during the weekend.
