Suicide prevention CCTV systems to be installed on Glasgow bridges

Comments Off on Suicide prevention CCTV systems to be installed on Glasgow bridges

The primary purpose of any CCTV system is to ensure a higher level of public safety by deterring crime, but it seems that public authorities in Glasgow are considering a new approach to this concept, since they’re planning to implement a new smart surveillance system designed to actually prevent suicides across the city.

According to a news report, Glasgow has won £24million in a competition known as the Future Cities Demonstrator, which is run by the Technology Strategy Board, the Government’s innovation agency.

City authorities will use these funds in order to set-up a high-end surveillance system, featuring more than 400 super intelligent CCTV cameras replacing the existing outdated network.

The cameras will be able to pick-up suspicious behaviour and will trigger an alarm, prompting further investigation by the emergency services. That suspicious behaviour will include people climbing on to a bridge parapet, which should lead, at least in theory, to a lower number of suicides.

When it comes to smart, latest-generation digital cameras and various high-end implementations, CCTV Surveillance is just the company to get the job done, since we’ve got both the advanced products and the set of skills required to match the customer’s exact requirements, while also keeping well within the budget limits.
