CCTV Systems to be deployed in bid to protect Qatar’s public art

Comments Off on CCTV Systems to be deployed in bid to protect Qatar’s public art

Qatar Museums is considering adding CCTV surveillance measures to help monitor and protect public art around the country, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

The new effort comes as part of QM’s anti-vandalism campaign, Public Art Department acting director Abdulrahman al-Ishaq revealed.

In an effort to spread awareness and engage with the community, Al-Ishaq added that the local entity is working with both government and non-governmental organisations to push the campaign forward.

“We’ve installed four road signs in Zikreet to ensure all rules are outlined explicitly. We seek to add surveillance measures and people who deliberately damage works can be punished in accordance with Qatar’s existing laws,” al-Ishaq added.

The anti-vandalism campaign was officially launched in September in a new collective effort to protect the country’s public art, which is a “fundamental part of Qatar’s cultural life,” al-Ishaq added.

“We’re asking the community to care for and protect our community’s public art,” he said.

In addition, Qatar National Museum will ensure that all tourists visiting public arts are aware of the rules and policies put in place to protect them from vandalism. QM is also working with other organisations on the campaign.


One of the key elements enabling Stoke-on-Trent City Council to reduce security costs was remote monitoring.

At CCTV Surveillance, we can offer you this service. We have seen it save countless customers money just like the council due to less staff being needed on patrol and lower insurance costs.

The CCTV Surveillance monitoring centre is staffed 24/7 all year round by highly trained operators, all of whom share a passion for security. They can take immediate action on the video footage that they are alerted to, either by using the intercom link to warn away offenders or calling the police and specified keyholders.

Our top-range systems use the latest digital technology to provide real time viewing and control of cameras via a broadband connection. For further security and information gathering we can provide you with facial recognition CCTV software (including a revolutionary rapid deployment kit) and automatic number-plate recognition, and even facial recognition access control systems if required.

We provide several other security services as well as remote monitoring, such as our System Takeover, where we can take on the time and responsibility of running and maintaining your existing security system for you. All of our CCTV systems can also integrate with our access control systems. For example, this could allow the automatic opening or barring of doors if a certain person is picked up on the cameras.

If you are worried about the security of your premises, we can perform an in-depth assessment with a full spectrum penetration test which replicates real-life threats – everything from social engineering to lock picking and getting past alarms. We can also provide a smaller physical penetration-only test.

If you want to reduce security costs today, please contact us on or ring 01480 223955.
