Covert surveillance unit
Law Enforcement Associates Corporation introduces the Graffiti Cam, a covert surveillance product engineered to proactively notify law enforcement of graffiti-related activity. The Graffiti Cam is a high-resolution video recording unit concealed in an all-weather enclosure. When the recording unit is activated by graffiti related motion, it sends text messages of the event in approximately six seconds to designated cellular telephones, as well as JPEG images of the event to designated e-mail addresses, enabling law enforcement to dispatch resources. Criminals remain unaware that law enforcement has been notified, increasing the likelihood of arrest.
