Surveillance systems at multiple government buildings that are far apart are linked together using fast and reliable IT infrastructure to enable remote viewing, recording and monitoring in one command center to provide centralized control.
Security cameras and CCTV systems can also be advantageous for smaller, local governments. A city might use security cameras to protect transportation facilities like bus stations, for example. Many localities in the UK use video surveillance as their main method of local security. At a smaller level, video surveillance can be applied to many more civic applications. Local governments and departments of transportation have used surveillance cameras to monitor traffic patterns. Traffic cameras, which capture data of drivers who speed or run red lights, help raise money through traffic tickets for city and local governments.
Some local governments, like the city of Charleston in West Virginia, have begun to team up with local businesses, offering a reimbursement to businesses who install surveillance cameras to monitor public areas and boost security in high-traffic pedestrian areas. Like surveillance cameras in federal and national applications, security cameras can also protect municipal and local government facilities like office buildings, courts, police stations, and museums. Temporary surveillance cameras are also a popular security technique used by law enforcement at protests, rallies and other public gatherings.
