With limited manpower during special events, police forces need officers dispersed throughout the event rather than monitoring from the perimeter. The Calera Police Department of Alabama is no stranger to working with limited manpower during city-wide functions and needed a surveillance solution that would reduce the number of officers assigned to monitoring and increase the number on the scene. The addition of remote video and lighting would allow them to observe several areas at once from a single command center. In addition, being able to view activities from overhead would be advantageous to the typically ground-level security viewpoint. Thus, an elevated monitoring option was key to a comprehensive surveillance solution.
