Security Cameras Aid Garland Police to Catch Thieves

Security Cameras Aid Garland Police to Catch Thieves

Fit Logistics, a family-owned trucking company fed up with losing approximately $10,000 to fuel thieves, installed security cameras on their property. But, these are no ordinary cameras! These surveillance cameras have special motion and zoning sensors, allowing them to detect criminal activity in real time and stream live video feeds to a command center where specialists can immediately alert police.

Praises to the cameras, two weeks after installation, Garland police were already on their way to the property of Fit Logistics while two men attempted to steal one of their big rigs. The two men were arrested and charged with theft.

 

"Simultaneously we can have the police dispatched to catch the criminals in the act versus getting away with a possible theft," said Chris Hill with the Single Source Group.

Four. This is the number of times thieves have stolen from Fit Logistics in the last two months.

“It was very aggravating. We’d get here in the morning and there was nothing we could do about it,” said Michael Szczypta, son of the business owner of Fit Logistics.

Thrive Intelligence, a video surveillance, real-time monitoring company, offered just the solution to Fit Logistics' theft issue.

"We built and superimposed trigger lines and zones around their vehicles that you don't see with the naked eye, that our cameras are constantly looking for," said Matt Antkowiak with Thrive Intelligence. "And, when the bad guys entered, we were able to call the police, dispatch and get them caught."

According to Szcypta, this solution offered the business some much needed relief.

“At least this time we know we got some results and that truck alone [in the video above] paid off the cameras,” said Szczypta.
