The City of Haverhill had an outdated camera surveillance system, none of which provided the Police Department with usable images or consistent coverage. SideBand Systems was called in to engineer, install and maintain both the city camera system and the network. SideBand designed a high efficiency wireless network for the city compatible with fiber backbone and cameras are continuing to be replaced. The City required a multitude of cameras for varying sites – roadways, intersections, department facilities, the main police building and city parks.
Haverhill police are impressed not only with both the clarity of the video they receive but also with the consistency and reliability of the overall network. Now, the police look first to the video system to seek footage for reports and to resolve any issues because the information is clear and consistent.
