Public Space Policing has proven to be effective in reducing the number of contact crimes experienced in residential suburbs. To meet these increasing challenges in the public security area, responsible institutions and organisations can tap into their own intelligence to successfully address possible security threats in advance. They optimise their internal structures, use synergies, and carefully balance costs and benefits of their measures. However, these institutions cannot act alone, as they need the full support of the public (community) to enforce these changes in public spaces. Without public support, threats cannot be combated entirely. The buy-in and support of residents' associations is key to the effectiveness of this model.
This model not only benefits all members of a community but also encourages community living. It promotes safety outside private properties; being safe on the pavement, jogging in the streets, teaching the kids to ride their bicycles and walking the dogs in the park.
The key objectives of Public Space Security are to:
identify suspicious and criminal activity within the suburb
prevent criminals from getting to their target (your house or driveway)
apprehend criminals, and have them arrested by the SAPS
drive criminal activity out of your suburb
CSS Tactical Guards are trustworthy, passionate guards. All our guards are subject to rigorous security checks and undergo regular polygraph tests. Compulsory weekly training includes the use of firearms, unarmed combat, driving skills and public relations. We believe our guards are well equipped with all the skills necessary to cope with all eventualities.
CSS Tactical has experience in the secure guarding of suburbs, estates, residential and industrial complexes, and shopping centers. All the CSS Tactical guards are recruited and trained with site-specific training in mind; this includes access control, patrolling, and residential logistic procedures.
Guards are equipped with two-way radios and are in constant communication with the tactical vehicles and on-duty guarding supervisor.
The CCTV is monitored at an off-site location in real time using i-Sentry technology. There controllers can watch the cameras, proactively assess threats and notify the relevant ground response team who would in turn manage any potential threat appropriately.
This control room also provides a safe and secure environment in which the footage is recorded and stored.
Without this remote monitoring CCTV cameras are a reactive management security tool. Our aim at CSS Tactical is to prevent incidents from occurring before they occur rather than assessing the footage afterwards.
iSentry is an automated video analysis system.
It uses Artificial Intelligence to learn the normal behavioral patterns of objects observed by a video camera. When an object displays activity that does not fit the model of normal behavior, the system highlights it as unusual and performs a number of automated responses. ISentry transforms a security environment from passive to active.
With its unique computer vision, developed for autonomous robots, iSentry can monitor every moving object in a camera's view. It measures the size, shape, speed and direction of motion of every object it sees. From this it builds a model of behavior, which it considers normal. When an object behaves in a way that does not fit the normal model, iSentry identifies it as unusual.
The iSentry processing occurs in real time and within 10 seconds of detecting unusual behavior we are able to dispatch a CSS Tactical vehicle. With industry leading average vehicle response times of less than three minutes, the criminals are hardly able to get started before we arrive on the scene.
iSentry has the power to do three things other systems cannot:
Detect unusual activity (Ultra-smart surveillance)
iSentry can filter out over 95% of normal motion video and only present unusual activity to operators. It provides excellent & unrivalled situational awareness and the ability to achieve an effective, immediate response.
Multiple Camera Analysis and Management (MCAM)
iSentry handles large numbers of cameras by scheduling interesting video, allowing the operator to shift priorities to other tasks without missing critical incidents.
Reliable outdoor left-object detection
iSentry can reliably detect small objects left in busy OUTDOOR areas. iSentry can cope with almost all weather conditions, rain hail or shine.
