The City of Casa Grande has a long and proud tradition of hosting numerous events in the city throughout the year to include assisting other agencies with events.
As a result of these events, every year there is an increase in the number of citizens and visitors that attend. These events face a myriad of security issues ranging from bomb threats, terrorist alerts, crowd control and general emergencies.
A consideration that is often overlooked is the amount of equipment used and personnel expenses incurred at these events needed to keep citizens and visitors safe.
Not all events are in one central location or easily manageable.
Unfortunately, emergency personnel can’t be everywhere - all the time.
This is why it was imperative for the Casa Grande Police Department to find a viable alternative that provides event planners with the ability to cover as
many areas as possible with the minimal amount of resources.
The WCCTV Solar Trailer was quickly identified as a solution for the events of Casa Grande and matched their ideal requirements. The fully autonomous trailer provides 24/7 solar power with a fully featured video surveillance system, in addition, the solar trailer can be redeployed to a new location in a matter of minutes.
Featuring a 20ft tower, the tower provides a High definition PTZ camera with up to 4TB of local recording. This allows for the production of powerful visuals of the event's activities, including live and recorded video and audio access from multiple devices; providing complete flexibility.
The WCCTV Solar Trailer cameras have the ability to transmit live and recorded footage via the 4G LTE network to the security team at any location where the solar trailer is deployed.
Members of the Casa Grande team could also access the video from smartphones and tablets whilst out of the control room. This allows the operators to quickly connect into any of the cameras and review the events in High definition without having to physically visit the event.
The system also includes two-way audio which provides remote, proactive security. The WCCTV Solar Trailer provides visual reassurance to event attendees’ and an effective deterrent to would-be criminals.
"The Casa Grande Police Department is committed to using innovative equipment/technology that helps in its mission to better serve their community while meeting the shifting demands of police work.
The Casa Grande Police Department found a solution to this problem through technology such as WCCTV, which gave the police department the ability to monitor in real time an area(s) without having to be physically present.
In the event of an emergency, this allows personnel overseeing an event at a command post or other designated area to identify and deploy the appropriate amount of resources (Police, Fire and City) to a scene/incident."
