Massachusetts Police Take Video Surveillance Forensics Package

Salient Stills : 09 February, 2011  (Application Story)
Salient Stills is supplying Fall River police with VideoFOCUS Pro for crime scene video processing and investigative forensic analysis of surveillance footage
Fall River Police Department, along with four other local police departments in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, has purchased a VideoFOCUS Pro subscription from Salient Stills. This enables investigators from each city to quickly process crime scene video and speed up investigations and prosecutions. The annual subscription to VideoFOCUS Pro provides access to powerful forensic video enhancement tools, which, through concurrent licensing, can be shared between the departments. VideoFOCUS Pro is in use by hundreds of investigative agencies in over 20 countries and throughout the United States.



"The Fall River Police Department is proud to partner with the suburban communities and Salient Stills so that we all can provide high quality, high tech investigative services, thus making the region a safer place," said Fall River Police Chief Daniel Racine.



This video forensics system adoption is an example of progressive police departments sharing the cost of an investigative technology, and lowering the overall cost for each department. In addition to Chief Racine, Chief Joseph Ferriera of Somerset, Massachusetts, Chief George Arruda of Swansea, Massachusetts, Chief Sid Wordell of Little Compton, Rhode Island and Chief Thomas Blakey of Tiverton, Rhode Island will oversee use of VideoFOCUS Pro by their investigators.



"By jointly purchasing a subscription to VideoFOCUS Pro, and sharing the resource when each needs it most, the departments gain access to this powerful video forensics technology at a much lower cost," said Laura Teodosio, president and CEO of Salient Stills. "Doing so enables these smaller police departments to analyze local crime scene video immediately, instead of relying on state, regional or national crime labs to process video - which can often take weeks."



Designed for use by law enforcement officers and using innovative processing algorithms, VideoFOCUS Pro dramatically improves the ability to capture and export fuzzy or grainy video from videotape, closed circuit TV systems, digital video cameras, cell phones and proprietary DVR formats. The systems generate higher resolution stills and videos to help identify suspects and produce other leads.
