CCTV feeds from retail stores across the UK are triggering ‘security magic’ in Secom’s Control and Command Centre, where a combination of skilled operators and powerful software is tightening the screws on habitual offenders.
Recently recognised at the Security Excellence Awards as ‘CCTV system of the year’ (excluding cameras and lenses), Secom’s new ROGUES service – pioneered in a selection of Co-op stores countrywide – is already getting real traction with habitual offenders.
The end-to-end solution is paying dividends with repeat offenders being identified and taken off of the street on the strength of Secom’s evidence and collaboration with multiple police forces.
Secom operators and analysts have submitted thousands of intelligence forms, unearthing a nucleus of more than 500 habitual offenders up and down the UK. Since November, 28 individuals have been charged with multiple offences.
