License Plate Capture Camera Stops Crime Spree In New Jersey Community

When residents at the Liberty Village Active Adult Community in Millville, N.J. started experiencing car theft and vandalism, the REG-X Close-Range License Plate Capture camera was installed at the premises to work in tandem with existing Bosch FlexiDome cameras in an effort to pinpoint individuals committing the crimes.

Situated at the gated community’s access point, both FlexiDome and REG-X provided a strong surveillance solution, FlexiDome provides comprehensive day/night viewing of the property, so security operators can detect suspicious activity and unauthorized vehicles. REG-X captures definitive plate images of all vehicles frequenting the premises, allowing positive identification of suspected offenders.

Within 36 hours of FlexiDome and REG-X providing joint surveillance at Liberty Village, authorities were able to identify and apprehend the individuals who had been targeting the community. Liberty Village has not experienced further criminal activity since.

“FlexiDome and REG-X were ideal choices for this application,” said Tim Longnecker, owner of Northfield, N.J. Pro Video Engineering, the integrator of the project. “FlexiDome produces an excellent image of the exact field of view we want -- in this case, the access point of this gated property -- for effective scene monitoring. And REG-X, delivering an absolute daytime and nighttime plate image of every vehicle, provides reliable information as to who frequents the site. Together, these cameras gave authorities the evidence they needed to identify and arrest the culprits committing crime at Liberty Village. The residents definitely feel safer and more secure.”

“I really appreciate the assistance that I received from the Bosch and Extreme technical support teams,” said Derek Weikel, service manager at Pro Video Engineering. “With their help, we were able to easily install the cameras, and get Liberty Village’s surveillance system up and running pretty quickly. And their ongoing support has been key to maintaining the equipment and upholding security at this community.”
