Football stadiums and grounds could benefit from improved CCTV with Tensor

CCTV Technology

The Government released statistics in September last year concerning football related arrests and banning orders in England and Wales during the 21/22 season. This was the first season welcoming full capacity of spectators back into grounds.

2,198 people were arrested under schedule 1 of the Football Spectators Act 1989; with the most common offence being public disorder and violent disorder. In addition, 1,308 football banning orders were enforced upon spectators.

CCTV is vital for catching and identifying individuals causing this type of behaviour. A British manufacturing company called Tensor plc may have the solution to help support football grounds to effectively catch offenders. Tensor have developed an AI crowd management system that uses facial recognition to identify known trouble makers. Already in use in Spain and some Latin American countries, the system auto-scans thousands of faces, only saving the identity and position of “people of interest”.

This sort of advanced security technology is no stranger to Tensor plc who specialise in advanced integrated security, access control and time and attendance systems. Tensor’s equipment is also used by police forces and has the police accreditation of Secure by Design. They are also NACOS Gold approved. Despite being a state-of-the-art it has a user-friendly interface and extensive CCTV analytics.
