Genetec And Body Worn Cameras In Philly Police Department

I saw this video Lisa Ling Episode 6: Philly's Wired Police Force last night and found it very interesting. Lisa Ling rides along with Philly Police to show how the body-worn cameras affect interactions with citizens and the police officers. They also how the SOC uses Genetec to investigate the crimes from the city-wide camera system. Check out the 40:14 mark to see the SOC.


Philly police may have to sign a waiver or two if they're using Genetec with the city-wide camera system:

Hikvision’s Security Systems Secure Residents Of Philadelphia

...The video surveillance systems have been hugely successful in keeping the Recreation Centers safe. Commissioner Slawson reports that the success of this initiative was a key factor in convincing the city council to pledge budget investment to outfit all 140 Rec Centers with CCTV by 2016. The cost efficiency of Hikvision products, combined with their innovative technology, allows for greater return on investment.

A 20 year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department, Commissioner Slawson well understands the importance of comprehensive surveillance in relation to crime reduction. Superior image quality from Hikvision cameras at the city’s recreation centers plays a key role in coordination with the police.

How do they have access to 4k cameras? I wonder if it has anything to do with the SafeCam Project in Philadelphia
