Each year, cities and counties nationwide spend millions of dollars cleaning up and properly disposing of items dumped illegally. They also spend countless hours trying to prosecute offenders with incomplete or inadequate evidence.
Illegally dumped garbage often contains harmful chemicals, toxic substances, sharp objects, medical waste, and other items that present a serious hazard to public health and safety as well as to the environment.
Illegal dumping also negatively impacts property and land values and can diminish tourism revenue.
Public education and outreach campaigns aimed at deterring illegal dumping are costly, diverting much needed public funds away from other critical programs. What’s more, there’s no clear way to measure the effectiveness of these campaigns.
The IntelliSite video surveillance system draws its power from the photo-cell adapter commonly found on many streetlights. A custom adapter easily connects the system to the existing streetlight without disrupting the light’s operation.
And City and Country staff can be easily trained to install and troubleshoot the monitoring system, saving the cost of outsourcing these services as well as the time it takes to manage outside vendors.
IntelliSite’s simple, cost-effective monitoring system enables 24/7 realtime monitoring and deterrence of illegal dumping activity. The all-in-one system can be deployed in a single day, with minimal involvement from your IT department.
The IntelliSite video surveillance system’s self-contained enclosure includes a 4G/LTE router, embedded server, and all necessary hardware — saving you the significant cost of investing in hardware or network infrastructure.
Once installation is complete, simply turn on the switch and the IntelliSite video surveillance system is up and running and ready to start monitoring in real time. No setup time needed.
Smart sensors detect specific activities that indicate illegal dumping, such as a vehicle parking on the side of the road, people getting out of the vehicle and entering a restricted area, and a person leaving anything behind.
The system captures and transmits full-color live video of illicit activity. Captured video can be used for proof of the act in the event of prosecution.
Once an alert is received, an agent at the remote monitoring center can use live voice-down functionality to speak directly to the offender on-site over a loudspeaker, informing him that illegal dumping is prohibited in this location.
The agent can also inform the offender that his license plate number has been captured on video, and that law enforcement will be dispatched if the activity continues.
When the IntelliSite video surveillance system detects an offender dumping trash anywhere in the vicinity, a real-time alarm is raised at a remote monitoring center. This alert-based system means you won’t need a person watching the live camera feeds 24/7, allowing you to conserve valuable human resources.
Real-time video also captures the offender’s license plate information, which may be used to bolster prosecution if necessary.
Illegal dumping activity can be monitored at your 911 dispatch location or by IntelliSite from a central monitoring station. When needed, IntelliSite agents will immediately contact law enforcement to request assistance, generate incident reports, and request copies of any police reports to share with you.
System-generated incident reports created for every alarm contain information about the incident, pictures of the offender(s) and his license plate, and details of the case. These reports may be used to bolster prosecution efforts.
Incident reports can also serve as citations, opening another source of revenue for your City or County.
4G/LTE-powered connections ensure fast, reliable video data transmissions so you can quickly catch offenders in the act, respond in real time, and capture uninterrupted video of illegal activity.
