ARPA Grants Support Investment in Surveillance Cameras

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) has released a series of grants to help government and law enforcement meet the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

One of the more severe impacts of the pandemic is the reduced number of law enforcement personnel, whether due to illness or attrition.

Below, WCCTV provides further information on this funding stream and how law enforcement agencies can access it to support their investment in mobile surveillance cameras. 

ARPA Grant Funding for Surveillance Cameras

What is the Purpose of the ARPA Grants?

Crime and gun violence are increasing more and more since the pandemic, and communities are facing real public safety challenges.

ARPA grants enable communities and law enforcement to invest in preventative policing methods such as mobile surveillance trailers or mounted pole cameras.

Public records show that at least five municipalities in Connecticut have allocated millions of dollars provided through the ARPA to equip local police departments with various surveillance technology.

Mobile Video Surveillance units act as a force multiplier. The additional eyes on the ground can quickly enhance public safety. 

They provide Law Enforcement organizations with 24/7 coverage of areas associated with illegal dumping, vehicle crime, theft, drug dealing, gang culture, and other criminal activities.

WCCTV Law Enforcement Use Cases

WCCTV's mobile surveillance cameras are utilized by law enforcement and government agencies across the US to prevent or deter crime.

This typically involves the overt deployment of a pole-mounted camera or surveillance trailer to act as a visual deterrent in areas associated with high crime rates. 

However, WCCTV's product portfolio also includes covert surveillance units which blend into their environment to gather visual evidence of crimes in progress.

WCCTV's cameras are rapid deployment units that are easy to install and maintain. They can be deployed for short-term surveillance requirements and quickly relocated should other applications emerge.

How to Prepare a Bid

Many departments will lack the time, experience, or resource availability to complete a grant funding bid to the required standard.

When grant bids are considered, the reviewers will be looking for a clear use case and comprehensive plan of how the awarded funding will directly and positively impact the community. 

WCCTV has supported many law enforcement agencies in completing grant funding bids, helping agencies highlight the transformative effects mobile surveillance units can have on reducing crime rates.

We have taken that experience, knowledge, and proveable success and applied it to creating a free-to-download guide on preparing a funding bid.
