Live Video Surveillance Security Leads to Construction Thief Arrest

Construction Thief Arrested by Live Video Surveillance

In this video, a thief attempted to steal buckets of paint from a construction project, but ultimately gets arrested thanks to live video surveillance. The thief was unaware that the visually obvious surveillance cameras did more than just record footage. While the thief committed their criminal act, SentriForce surveillance monitoring personnel dispatched local law enforcement while reporting real-time updates of the suspect’s location and activity. In the end, the criminal was arrested outside of camera view, the stolen construction materials were returned, and the construction project manager can press criminal charges.

Live Video Monitoring Security Technology

In today’s age, criminals are brazen enough to ignore the presence of security cameras as they know that most cameras can not capture enough details for identification. Criminals can also wear additional clothing and cover to hide any distinguishable features. However, they are unaware that live video monitoring technology exists and that law enforcement can be dispatched to their location with real-time updates of location and activity.

By utilizing newer security technology on your construction project, you will be able to more effectively prevent or reduce criminal activity, such as theft and vandalism by staying ahead of typical criminal behavior.
