There is no second argument to the fact that security is of paramount importance inside all prisons. These places are meant to house inmates who have committed crimes, with the aim of punishing them and also reforming them. Considering the fact that the same prison often houses inmates serving sentences for petty crimes and those for serious crimes under the same roof, it is important to ensure that the hardened criminals are in no way able to influence the lives and activities of those who would be out of the prison after serving their sentence.
Over the centuries we have seen different kinds of security measures being employed by law enforcement agencies to improve security in and around prisons. From building higher walls to putting criminals into solitary confinements, different measures have been adopted over the course of time. The aim is to prevent people from serving their sentences from escaping prisons and to restrict their contact with the outer world other than what is allowed under the law.
Prisons in Dubai and other parts of the world have been embracing newer technologies to strictly enforce law within prisons to prevent any criminal activity inside and instances of prison staff from colluding with the prisoners in any possible manner. Electronic surveillance has improved the scope of security inside prisons and strict adherence to the sentences. When we talk of electronic surveillance, CCTV systems immediately come to mind. These systems have helped in considerable improvement of security inside prisons and preventing assault on inmates.
We at The Camera Installers, have been securing establishments in Dubai and elsewhere in the United Arab Emirates with our state-of-the-art Prison Surveillance Cameras. We provide our clients with the latest in technology in terms of indoor cameras, outdoor cameras, PTZ cameras, Digital Video Recorders and other accessories that are required for seamless monitoring of buildings and their surrounding areas. Our aim has always been to support organizations and agencies with the best possible technology.
Prison surveillance cameras in Dubai ensure round the clock monitoring of all the activities in a prison. From prison cells to common areas and high-security areas of the prison, this camera system will allow the prison staff and authorities to keep track of all activities taking place inside the prison. It records every movement made by the inmates and staff to ensure no illegal activities are going on inside the prison.
In the past, prisons faced problems with contraband items getting into the cells housing the inmates. The installation of CCTV systems helped in detecting the entry of these items and confiscating them thus preventing such incidents. These camera systems also help in keeping watch on the behavioral activities of the hardened criminals to prevent them from influencing other inmates who may be serving sentences for lesser crimes.
Securing a prison manually is an expensive matter and often requires a huge team working in three different shifts every single day. The size of the team would have to grow along with the number of prisoners, as well as the infrastructure that houses them. Along with the increasing workload for the staff, surveillance on the inmates may be significantly affected. This concern can be addressed with the use of CCTV cameras. With the help of surveillance systems like this, prison personnel wouldn’t need to be physically present in every area of the prison to watch over their jurisdiction, and a smaller team can monitor security from a central location.
In a country like the United Arab Emirates which has a large migrant population, there is a sizable number of foreign nationals serving prison sentences. The law enforcement agencies thus, need to be more vigilant to ensure all foreign nationals get their due rights inside the prison, and that they are never at risk. This is another area where CCTV installation is helping prisons adhere to international law.
Inside the prison, medical emergencies is as common as elsewhere. As the well-being of the prisoners is a duty of the local authorities, CCTV cameras allow prison staff to easily identify medical emergencies and respond to them quickly. An inmate suffering a cardiac arrest, or any other medical emergency can be attended quickly when there is 24-hour surveillance. This can make all the difference between life and death.
Even with all the security measures that are adopted in a prison, there are still instances of illegal activities taking place inside. This is where prison surveillance cameras in Dubai help in gathering crucial evidence if and when such illegal activities take place, to prevent and deal with them as per the procedures detailed under the law.
