Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office - Mobile Surveillance Upgrades

Background - Theft and Crime Prevention

Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office operates eight law enforcement sky towers to provide mobile video surveillance of the county, helping to reduce crime rates and enhance public protection.

Each of the sky towers contains several video surveillance cameras that record footage locally to a hard drive within the tower.

Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office wanted to enhance situational awareness by upgrading to remote access mobile video surveillance solution, without replacing their existing fleet.

The Solution - Mobile NVRs

To meet these requirements, WCCTV installed many of its hybrid mobile NVR systems, the WCCTV V4 Nano, into each tower. The existing cameras were connected to the WCCTV Nano, allowing the end-user to view live and recorded video securely and efficiently over the 4G LTE network.

The unit contains a Compact Flash card for digital evidential quality recording, and users can remotely access live and recorded video via 4G LTE any time from any device.

The Result

Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office deployed their Sky Towers during the recent McAllen Holiday Parade. They had the option to rotate resources with a combination of manned and remotely managed towers. This allowed them to utilize both human and technical resources efficiently in their efforts to Police the parade.

"By integrating the Nano into our existing camera system, we were able to remotely view the parade, which proved to be both cost-effective and extremely reliable." - Captain, Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office.
