We are delighted to introduce Facewatch as a new Bb (British Bids) Commercial Partner alongside Boots; Jones Lang LaSalle and Santander among others. Rapidly modernising the way crime is reported across the country and providing integrated online systems will prove of immense value to BIDs across Britain who are doing a tremendous job in improving our city centres
Victoria BID was the first to see the potential of Facewatch and we have been working with Simon and his team since the very start in 2010. We have seen and contributed to the system development to get it to where it is today and are convinced that this will make our Communities safer over the coming years. I would commend Facewatch to anyone who genuinely wants to make a difference and particularly BIDs who are in an excellent position to improve their local areas
“From its early beginnings as a simple way for businesses to report low level crime with CCTV evidence directly to the Police, Facewatch has evolved into a confidential communications platform leveraging the very latest in internet technology. With the focus on creating crime free and community focused city areas, BIDS will find Facewatch the ideal tool to communicate easily with all the agencies involved and as an already established solution, used by many police forces, acceptance will be quick and effective”
This British-built and converted Astra Sports Tourer will help make police officers more efficient. It becomes their office and allows them to spend more time on the road fighting crime
It is an enormous privilege to have been chosen as a technology partner with Vauxhall. I am sure that Facewatch integrated and working together with the other break-through tech in the car will make a significant contribution to making all our communities safer
“The appropriate use of technology has always been a priority at Kings. It enables our team to provide the very best service to customers and ensure we always provide high quality evidence to the police. The Facewatch system has been proven to provide an additional deterrent to low level criminal activity and to help the police follow up and convict more criminals. We are pleased to be the first to offer this unique solution directly to our business partners and will be using Facewatch in our control room to enhance our fully integrated monitoring and reporting service. “I believe this is an important step in making the use of CCTV more effective and professional. Facewatch’s network, combined with a cloud based CCTV offering, will enable previously unconnected CCTV systems dotted around business premises around the UK to be networked and managed by professionals rather than by thousands of individuals with varying levels of experience in using CCTV for evidential purposes.”
“We are extremely pleased to be working with Kings who provide monitoring for some of the biggest businesses in the UK. Facewatch continues to develop its technology and this offering for control rooms has been developed especially to meet the high professional standards of a busy control room where multiple incidents are being managed in real-time. Facewatch provides the final link in the chain for security services providers by ensuring the police are provided with fast, and high quality evidence.”
“People can view the images by simply inputting a postcode into the screen and selecting a radius of up to five miles. This will display a number of images of people connected to incidents in their selected area with a function for providing information immediately and confidentially to the police. For me, victims of crime are a top priority. The aim is to keep members of the public and more specifically victims of crime involved in the justice process”.
“Mobile phone technology, social networking and real-time communications are all a part of modern life. As a Force we recognise that the demand for this must be met with modern day policing.This innovative application is an exciting step towards this for us and will not only help us solve more crime, but will also allow members of the public to play an active part in it.People can view the images, when they like, where they like. And if they recognise someone, they can simply send an immediate response through. In the same way, officers will be able to view this library of pictures when they are out and about allowing for quick identification, and thereby helping to solve more crime in our county”.
“We are extremely pleased that Northamptonshire Police has chosen Facewatch as their partner. Facewatch ID has proven to be highly successful in encouraging the general public to assist the police in solving crime in London with over 100,000 downloads of the app and 8.5 million images viewed in the first five months of use during 2012. We hope the success will be repeated in Northamptonshire.”
