Maryland Park Police Department Deploys Mobile Video Camera System
Brekford International Corp., a provider of homeland security technology products and services, recently announced completion of installation of 20 Panasonic Toughbook Arbitrator mobile camera systems for use in police vehicles by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
Mobile vehicle-mounted camera systems provide audio and video recordings of police activities to maintain chain of custody for evidence collection. The recordings can be used to provide information for use in court, for officer training, tracking, surveillance and a range of other applications to increase safety and effectiveness for police and the public.
“Demonstrating to the marketplace the high return on investment provided by vehicle-mounted video systems, which can reduce legal and insurance exposure, is an important next step in our strategy to provide fully integrated vehicle upfitting solutions,” commented William A. Shafley, CEO of Brekford International. “We believe these projects further validate the reputation we have earned for providing value to public safety agencies throughout the Mid-Atlantic.”
Brekford’s Upfitting division develops integrated, feature-rich, “office-in-the car” rugged mobile communication solutions that enable police officers, security personnel and first responders to obtain and exchange information in real-time. The Company’s growing client list includes branches of the U.S. military, the National Security Agency and critical security and public safety agencies in the State of Maryland.
