Riverside, California (US):

The new Sports Center in the City of Rancho Cucamonga broke ground April of last year. It will be bigger than the existing RC Sports Center and will include three indoor and three outdoor multi-use courts, a multipurpose room, concession, and office space for city staff.

 

The size and number of facilities called for a robust surveillance and security system.

 

In response to this need, developers worked with city staff and engineers from Leverage Information Systems to develop the appropriate surveillance and security platform for the new facility.

 

The security and network solutions provider was selected to install surveillance cameras throughout the facility and integrate them into the Public Safety Video Network of the City of Rancho Cucamonga.

 

The video network is an ongoing project where surveillance-style cameras are deployed all over the city to promote public safety. It started in 2013 with the Victoria Gardens Shopping Center and parts of the Foothill corridor receiving the 12 cameras that were first deployed.

 

The project continued to expand over the past 5 years and now includes a variety of city facilities and properties open to the public and some of the school districts within the city.

 

According to the City of Rancho Cucamonga, the cameras add a layer of security that ensures public safety and enhances the citizens’ quality of life. People who frequent locations where the cameras installed will have a sense of security.

 

The Public Safety Video Network will also support law enforcement.

 

When completed, the new Sports Center will provide a sports area for the community that is centrally located.

 

It is expected that the number of visitors to the new facility will double. Thus, the need for a robust surveillance and security platform.

 

The role of Leverage Information Systems is just one of the advanced design considerations for the project.

 

As what RJM Design Group’s Zachary Mueting said, “The city put a lot of forethought in how this building will evolve. It wasn’t just built for today. It’s been designed for the evolution down the road.”

 

RJM Design Group is the architecture firm chosen for the project.

Riverside, California (US):

In a joint meeting of the El Cajon City Council that was called to order by Mayor/Chair Bill Wells last June 27, 2017, network solutions provider Leverage Information Systems was awarded the RFP to develop a consolidated video management system.

 

The contract is under RESOLUTION NO. 051-17 with a stipulated budget of over $130,000.

 

The goal is to unify various surveillance system platforms within the city, starting with the 3 existing systems in the City of El Cajon. These will be unified within the Leverage Detect Municipal Surveillance solution.

 

For the past year, the city compiled the resources for the project and recently kicked off a meeting to begin the unification process.

 

Leverage Information Systems will connect the existing cameras and make them viewable from a single source via the map-based “Detect” Video Management Suite (VMS). This is a standards-based Windows software platform that is operated through the patented peer-to-peer surveillance architecture.

 

The legacy systems will be integrated into the new Leverage Detect System with features and functions that are designed specifically to address surveillance requirements at a Municipal level.

 

The VMS includes the VMS Viewing Software, NVR Recording Software, and Authentication Software.

 

The new Leverage Detect System will include surveillance cameras in various facilities and many city intersections. Some of the facilities that will be integrated into the new system are the Police, City Hall, Public Works, and the new Animal Shelter.

 

With the unified system in place, first responders will be provided with real-time situational awareness. This will help them make better decisions during critical events.

 

Based on the resources provided by the City of El Cajon, Leverage Information Systems will use their years of knowledge and expertise to bring together a wide range of surveillance system components and make them easily accessible in one place by authorized individuals.

Leverage Champions a Unified Surveillance System for Public Safety

 

Resource sharing improves first responders’ decision making and keeps communities safe

 

Riverside, California (US): Leverage Information Systems, a provider of high-quality networking solutions, encourages unified surveillance systems for the better protection of communities. The sharing of resources such as municipal cameras, traffic cameras, and even private cameras helps towards building a better public safety network. With the unification of surveillance systems, existing assets are made greater use of, resulting in a cost-effective system for public safety and protection.

 

The availability of real-time video provides officers with a tool that they can use to improve response time to critical incidents. With real-time video, officers can find ways to respond better to events, such as a shop robbery or a suspected DUI. The forensic-quality recordings can also be used in investigations and prosecutions.

 

Leverage works by making an inventory of municipal surveillance systems. The information gathered is used to formulate a plan for building a public safety video network. With an experienced staff, Leverage Detect can have a unified surveillance system up and running in no time.

 

Not only does a municipal-wide surveillance system protect the public; a unified surveillance system also keeps responding officers safe. After a 911 call is received about a robbery at a local Wal-Mart and with the suspected thief already making an escape, an officer is immediately dispatched to the scene of the crime. The officer is guided by a remote operator who uses the network of cameras to keep track of the suspect while also providing aid to assisting officers.

 

On their partnership with Leverage Detect, Captain David Povero of the Covina Police Department said, “I am proud to partner with Leverage and appreciate their commitment in providing high quality surveillance technology to improve our ongoing public safety efforts. Our relationship has been a tremendous asset for Covina.”

Leverage Detect Unified Video Surveillance for Beaumont Unified School District

 

Riverside, California (US): In 2016, Beaumont Unified School District (BUSD) awarded a contract to Leverage to provide Overt Campus surveillance surrounding their High School, a Football Stadium, and the adjacent District Office. The solution utilizes ProActive Surveillance methodology to capture critical entrance and exit locations via multiple Fixed and PTZ cameras, as well as outbound audio messages to address nuisance behavior.

 

Part of the solution includes strategically-deployed cameras which utilize high performance analytics to capture intrusions over a large area. A highly secure wireless network was deployed to support the transmission of video to a centrally located Network Video Recorder. Detect Video Management Software (VMS) is used to view live video, and manage recordings and video incidents created for long-term retention.

 

In late 2017, BUSD and Beaumont Police Department entered into an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) which permits BPD to view all BUSD within their Detect VMS. This integration and sharing of resources is noted as one of the 1st of its kind in the Southern CA region.

 

In 2018, BUSD awarded Leverage an additional contract to expand this solution throughout its 11 campuses including several Elementary and Middle Schools, along with an Adult School.  The system will be fully operational in the 3rd Quarter of 2018. All surveillance cameras will be viewable by both District and Law Enforcement personnel. Leaders from both BUSD and BPD are excited to utilize this capability to help keep all BUSD school campuses safe for all students, faculty, and family.

Peer to Peer Surveillance Architecture and Automated Camera Response

Patent Published February 8th, 2018

 

Riverside, California (US): Leverage Detect received their patent for Automated Camera Response in a Surveillance Architecture, published on February 8th of 2018. The application is in continuation to Leverage Detect’s earlier patent, Peer to Peer Surveillance Architecture, and the two work together in providing a surveillance system with better detection and response capabilities over the more traditional surveillance systems.

 

For example, many traditional surveillance systems generally provide audio and video monitoring through a hierarchical system. A closed-circuit television system, for instance, can provide video monitoring through a set of closed-circuit cameras. They are then connected to a single standalone device where the video from the cameras are sent to and viewed. In order for the more traditional CCTV surveillance system to operate, there is a single central controller or device that acce0pts the signals from the closed circuit cameras usually via wired connection. This presents a single point of failure, whereby should anything happen to the device the entire surveillance system can fail.

 

Digital and networked devices were introduced to get around the wired connectivity. Digital devices can obviously be set up wirelessly and they allow for one or more standard network connections that can be used by capture devices, rather than a dedicated video connection. Utilizing the internet, the videos can also be sent through digital networks, whereas CCTV systems weren’t able to do without great expense.

 

The digital network based surveillance systems still continue to rely on a centralized controller in order to function. So even though the problem with wired CCTV systems has been alleviated by network based surveillance systems, the single point of failure of the centralized controller still persists in today’s systems. This is where a Peer to Peer Surveillance Architecture with automated camera response addresses the deficiency in these systems as well as providing additional advantages.

 

Leverage Detect utilizes a Peer to Peer Surveillance Architecture. The surveillance architecture has no central controller because of the independent relationship between its nodes. The nodes of the architecture may refer to capture (camera), viewing, content storage, etc. In this sort of structure there are less moving parts which allows for a higher uptime, real-time situational awareness for first responders, and scalability for large municipalities. When this system is coupled with automated camera response, law enforcement and first responders can respond real-time making the system more effective than a client-server network with reduced reliability.

 

Contact Leverage Detect today for more information on Peer to Peer Surveillance Architecture and Automated Camera Response.

Rancho Cucamonga Integrates Local High Schools Into Public Safety Video Network

The City of Rancho Cucamonga has been working with the Chaffey Joint Union High School District to establish a network connection between the city’s four high school campuses and the Public Safety Video Network (PSVN). Leverage Information Systems designed and installed a wireless link at the Los Osos High School that connects directly to the PSVN. The connection at Los Osos provides connectivity to the three remaining high schools, Alta Loma High School, Etiwanda High School and Rancho Cucamonga High School. Integrating the high school campuses into the PSVN provides instant access to approximately 150 cameras spread out among the four campuses. This allows law enforcement to view and respond to activity occurring on any of the campuses adding an additional layer of security and safety for the students and the community. The equipment is now being installed and is expected to go live within the next week or so.

Within the Chaffey Joint Union High School District, there are twelve different high schools all networked together.  Four of these high schools, Alta Loma High School, Etiwanda High School, Rancho Cucamonga High School and Los Osos High School are located within the City of Rancho Cucamonga.  The school district’s network distributes surveillance video across their network.  We were able to take advantage of this design and created a wireless link at the Los Osos campus.  This link connects with the PSVN and provides access to the cameras not only at Los Osos but at the other three campuses as well.  This adds over 150 cameras to the existing PSVN making them available for live viewing.

The school district has full control of their cameras and recorded video.  All recorded video is stored and maintained at the district office.  In the event of an emergency or an event requiring first responder action, any of the cameras on any of the four campuses is accessible to determine an appropriate response.  The PSVN is capable of controlling Pan, Tilt and Zoom functions on any camera that supports that functionality.

This project had significant cooperation and participation from a variety of agencies all working together.  The City of Rancho Cucamonga provided support from their Police Department as well as their Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT).  DoIT worked closely with the Chaffey Joint Union High School’s Information Technology administrators to work out details on how the two networks could communicate with each other.  There was considerable support from the Cucamonga Valley Municipal Water District and the Inland Empire Utilities Agency who provided access to their radio tower supporting the wireless link to the PSVN.  All of these agencies and departments worked together seamlessly with the engineers and crews from Leverage Information Systems to make this project a success.

Video Surveillance Security System for Cucamonga School System

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Leverage Information Systems Launch’s Video Surveillance Security System for Cucamonga School System

Riverside County, CA, United States – January 22, 2018 – Leverage Information Systems, a communication and network security company will soon launch a video surveillance security system for the Cucamonga School District. This municipal video surveillance system will provide a digital solution to monitor crime hot spots including vandalism, unauthorized entrance, or additional threats in four district school campuses. Schools included in the new surveillance system plan are Cucamonga Elementary School, Los Amigos Elementary School, The Ontario Center School and Rancho Cucamonga Middle School.

 

Public safety has been one of the City’s highest priorities, researching a city-wide video surveillance solution as far back as 2006. After years of research and some proof of concept experiments, they went through an RFP process and engaged Leverage Information Systems to complete the initial phase of what was to become the Public Safety Video Network (PSVN).  This unified video surveillance will integrate each school’s surveillance network with the City of Rancho Cucamonga’s Public Safety Video Network. Such a system allows law enforcement officers to monitor live activity and respond to threats effectively.

 

The initial deployment was authorized in 2013 and consisted of approximately a dozen cameras positioned around the perimeter of the Victoria Gardens Shopping Center and portions of the Foothill Boulevard corridor. All cameras recorded events 24/7 and were available for review or export within the Police Department’s Video Control Center. Over the years, the City of Rancho Cucamonga continued to invest in the PSVN expanding the number of cameras throughout the city. Initially, only existing city buildings and properties were incorporated into the PSVN. This included such locations as the City Hall complex, public libraries, and senior centers and eventually included large venues such as the Metrolink Station Parking Facility and the Epicenter Stadium.

 

By 2015, the City of Rancho Cucamonga  decided to further expand the PSVN and integrate that technology with the various school districts within the city. By 2016, the Cucamonga School District was the first district that was ready to begin the research towards implementing a solution that would allow them to connect with the City of Rancho Cucamonga’s PSVN.  The district worked with engineers and designers from Leverage Information Systems to develop a full-scale plan that would cover all four of their campuses as well as their district office. The Cucamonga School District is unique in that all of their campuses are linked together by a 10 Gigabit fiber infrastructure providing an abundant source of bandwidth throughout the entire district.

 

Rancho Cucamonga continues to be one of Southern California’s most family-oriented cities, encouraging community-driven solutions for public safety. This type of innovative and collaborative sharing between the city and the school district is a key component to the vision of the Rancho Cucamonga Public Safety Video Network and a core component of Leverage’s Surveillance Practice.
