Grant funds from the American Rescue Plan Act can be utilized to support investment in mobile surveillance cameras.
ARPA Grants Allow Investment in Mobile 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.
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 technologies.
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.
Use Cases for Mobile Surveillance Cameras
WCCTV's mobile surveillance cameras are utilized by US law enforcement and government agencies to prevent or deter crime.
This typically involves overtly deploying 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 that 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.
