Hikvision Video Surveillance Solution Secures Gold Prize

Hikvision USA is excited to announce that the City of Philadelphia has been awarded a Gold Prize in Government Security News’ Homeland Security Awards as a result of partnership with Hikvision. Hundreds of Hikvision cameras installed in the Philadelphia recreation centers helped secure a win in the category of “Most Notable Municipal Security Program, Project, or Initiative.” This prestigious recognition is the third for Hikvision USA in just a few months and solidifies its continued commitment to providing cutting-edge video surveillance solutions in North America.

Government Security News created the Homeland Security Awards to honor outstanding vendors of security products and solutions, as well as the government agencies that work to keep the U.S. secure at municipal, state, and federal levels. The awards program is the most prestigious in the homeland security field.

“In recent years, homeland security has seen an unprecedented proliferation of cutting edge technology in physical security,” remarked Adrian Courtenay, CEO of Government Security News. “Government agencies have maximized the features offered by technology vendors in order to implement highly effective strategies for dealing with security threats.”

In Philadelphia, Hikvision cameras and NVRs provide a highly scalable security network that protects residents at the city’s recreation centers and improves security city-wide. A recent initiative, “Fun Safe Philly Summer,” emphasized safety throughout Philadelphia communities and offered community activities at the rec centers. Such events strengthen relationships within the local neighborhoods and demonstrate the city’s devotion to providing a high quality of life for its residents.

“Philadelphia’s Department of Parks and Recreation is committed to providing safe environments,” asserted Deputy Commissioner of Parks and Recreation, Susan Slawson. “We’re honored to be recognized for this commitment in the form of a Homeland Security Award.”

The Homeland Security Award puts a spotlight on Hikvision’s success in the safe cities vertical.

“As a total solution provider, Hikvision USA serves the advanced security needs of municipalities all across North America,” affirmed Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA. “We congratulate the City of Philadelphia on their award and we are proud to stand behind them in their dedication to the safety of their residents.”
