Chattanooga Turns to Genetec for Public-Private Policing Initiative

The city of Chattanooga, Tenn., has deployed Genetec’s Security Center unified platform as a part of Dragonfly Community Connect, a public-private policing initiative designed to enhance public safety in the community.

Now, when calls come into the Chattanooga Police Department (CPD), Genetec’s Real-Time Intelligence Center (RTC) can check with participating businesses in the area to see whether they are able to share video from their security cameras.

Stratocast, a cloud-based video monitoring service from Genetec, prompts business owners to grant permission and access of their video streams to CPD on request, so that investigating officers can monitor live video during an incident, or review recorded video during an investigation, directly from the Security Center platform located in the RTIC.

Stratocast is hosted on Microsoft Azure, so it requires less hardware to install and maintain, lowering overall costs. And because recorded video is stored in the cloud, it is safe from physical damage, and secure from unauthorized access.

“Having the capability to view live video allows our investigators to quickly send images of suspects, their vehicles, and other crucial information to officers who are responding to calls for service,” said Retired Chattanooga Police Chief David Roddy. “It dramatically reduces the time officers spend requesting, accessing, or obtaining video evidence relative to the event or crime to which they are responding.”
