Security solutions can help cities build sustainable and self-sufficient communities that encourage economic development. This is what the New Bedford Housing Authority (NBHA) — which provides nearly 1,750 federal public housing units and 748 state-aided units located across 19 properties in the city of New Bedford, Massachusetts — found when they deployed a comprehensive Avigilon video security system.

The Avigilon solution has enabled law enforcement to better serve the NBHA’s communities. The housing authority has always had a close working relationship with the local police force, and now that both parties utilize Avigilon systems, their platforms are cross-functional. Investigators can easily access the cameras to view video feeds in real-time or export footage for evidence.

The process of collecting evidence has also been expedited. In the past, compiling clips for court proceedings was a tedious, analog process; but now editing, formatting, duplicating and sharing high-definition video has become a more seamless experience.

“The greatest savings that I have experienced is time. The amount of time spent reviewing video for incidents using our previous cameras and VMS system has been cut down tremendously using Avigilon,” said Steven Beauregard, executive director of the NBHA. “The thumbnail, pixel, appearance and classified object search have been a great benefit in making everything more time-efficient.”
