Texas Crime Prevention Agency provides security solutions for any event including corporate gatherings or galas that may require a uniformed guard service. We provide well-equipped and trained visible security guards that secure the premises and protect your guests. Our firm has the option of hiring an armed or unarmed security guard for an hour or double shift, depending on the specific need.
Our security guards have at least five years of experience in the military, law enforcement or private security sectors and receive training every 30 to 60 days. Our team is trained extensively in emergency and combat situations and have to pass a background check.
Cutting-Edge Security Officer Technology:
The new technology comes from Visual Labs Inc. and functions as an app on a smartphone.
While working, each officer has an assigned Android cellphone with the body camera app downloaded, making it easier to start and stop recordings and move them to other devices.
In many ways, the body camera app functions like most apps. When officers begin their shifts, they log in and are GPS tracked on the Admin / Dispatcher computer system. Officer’s can activate body camera recording
at any time during their tour of duty. But unlike apps that have to be opened every time to be used, the body camera app runs continuously in the background until the officer logs out.
Thus, officers do not have to take out the smartphone and touch the screen to begin a recording. Instead, they simply push buttons on the side of the phone — without removing it from a carrier on the front of their vests — and a recording will start.
After ending video recordings, officers can tag them with relevant information, such as “Incident” or “Training.” The recordings are then uploaded automatically to the Texas Crime Prevention Agency database, making them available to Management / Dispatch on their computers and those with administrative status.
The recordings saved to the database include video and other information, such as the location where the video was taken and the speed, if the officer was moving.
If a smartphone does not have service when a recording ends, an encrypted version is saved on the phone until it has service. The video is then uploaded automatically.
It gives features that are both accountability-based and safety-based.
