Police-Monitored Access Control Cameras

The possibility of using wireless security cameras monitored by local police to supplement access controls at facilities arises from plans unfolding in Bayonne, N.J.

There, 20 closed-circuit surveillance cameras are being installed to help protect several industries. The Avrio Group, of Easton, Md., is assembling a wireless digital security camera network. Monitors will be installed in the Bayonne police communications center.

Financing – over $200,000 – is coming from Homeland Security grants, a U.S. Department of Justice grant, and city bond funds.

This sort of approach could lead to dialogue between owners of sensitive facilities and police officials in other areas.
