A security camera network in the Eastern Cape has helped in another arrest. The licence plate recognition (LPR) camera network in Beacon Bay received an alert message about a suspicious vehicle spotted in the area on Monday 8 October.
“One of our operators picked up the report that a station wagon was spotted by the camera network, and alerted our armed response officers in the area to be on the lookout for the vehicle in question,” says Johan du Preez, East London branch manager at Fidelity ADT.
The vehicle was previously reported as being stolen.
“Our LPR camera operators were able to track the vehicle’s movement, as it made its way through Beacon Bay and eventually to Nahoon. This information was relayed to Fidelity ADT armed response officers and the police, who successfully stopped the vehicle in Nahoon. The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody.
“Modern technology – such as this LPR camera network which we erected – is making it more and more difficult for criminals to get away from the long arm of the law. Talk to your armed response company and find out what latest technologies they have implemented to help keep you and your loved ones safe,” says Du Preez.
