When vulnerable or problem hotspots are identified, Sherpa can be deployed quickly and easily to monitor and record the area in real time, so crime-fighting resources can be sent at a moment’s notice and prosecutions enforced with CCTV evidence.

With a wide variety of crime prevention threats to deal with, a system such as Sherpa can provide fast, flexible options for using live and recorded CCTV to cover all such instances.

Sherpa can help deliver an up-to-date Common Operational Picture for commanders to enhance the quality of incident information, the effectiveness of decision-making and to record evidence for prosecutions and enquiries.

“The very presence of the Sherpa cameras deters would-be offenders and sends a signal out to all that we are watching and protecting the area. Its portability and fast deployment make Sherpa an essential part of the criminal detection and deterrent toolbox.”
