Search for suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings relies heavily on CCTV footage analysis

Following the tragic Boston Marathon bombings, that left three people dead and many more wounded, the FBI, police and other law-enforcement agencies across the US had to rapidly scramble in order to find and apprehend the persons responsible for the terrorist attack.

While the thorough forensics investigation of the scene did provide the investigators with important information regarding the nature of the explosive devices used in the blasts, they had to rely on another powerful tool in order to actually identify suspects, namely video footage and photos.

In fact, investigators have analyzed images coming from a variety of sources, including news crews’ cameras, photos and videos taken by members of the public attending the Boston Marathon, as well as the numerous private and public CCTV cameras installed in the area.

This proves once again just how important the implementation of a high-end, reliable and secure CCTV surveillance system can prove to be nowadays, and this is also one of Tensor plc’s main areas of expertise.

Tensor has an extensive experience in installing CCTV systems and commissioning comprehensive video management solutions for large multi-site facilities, and can also fully integrate video surveillance into other security systems including ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), Access Control and Facial Recognition.

Whilst CCTV systems are an effective crime deterrent and can provide recorded video footage for post event analysis or evidence, the benefit to your business is enhanced through real-time remote monitoring of your CCTV system – providing extra eyes during an event and response through live audio, to challenge potential intruders as well as recording the situation.

Tensor’s Project Managers and Integration Engineers, all of which have a background in the security industry, professional engineering, IT and integration, defense electronics and the armed forces work to the highest standards to ensure that solutions achieve the required functionality, within budget, and are well implemented.
