Hounslow Homes, an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO), has achieved savings of more than £50,000 and reduced the incidence of anti-social behaviour after deploying a range of covert CCTV solutions from Rapid Vision Systems.  The savings have been made by speeding up the evidence gathering process and reducing court appearance costs by presenting perpetrators with indisputable images of their crimes.  There has also been a reduction in the number of offenders as awareness of the effectiveness of this approach has spread.

Rapid Vision Systems has provided a wide range of covert CCTV solutions to help Hounslow Homes to stamp out anti-social behaviour, harassment, hate crime, domestic violence and the abuse of adults and children at risk.  According to Peter Jordan, Professional Witness Officer for Hounslow Homes, “The cameras delivered impressive results from the start, providing compelling video evidence that has resulted in a significant increase in successful prosecutions, enabling us to take immediate and decisive action to improve the living environment for residents.”

Rapid Vision Systems worked closely in partnership with Hounslow Homes’ Anti-Social Behaviour and Tenancy Team to develop a wide a range of covert solutions including cameras installed in common household objects.  They are mounted in inconspicuous locations and deliver excellent low light performance allowing target locations to be monitored around the clock.  The excellent covert hides being paramount in making the tenants feel secure with their usage.

The cameras have made a big impact on residents particularly one who had been viciously attacked by a neighbour and was in fear of the family having made a statement to support Hounslow Homes’ action against the perpetrators.  A covert camera was placed in his property to provide support and prevent or detect any offences.  Following the eviction of the family monitored, he wrote to thank Hounslow Homes for the immediate and effective support of the camera and the reassurance it provided to him and visitors to his property.
Hounslow Homes’ Anti-Social Behaviour and Tenancy Team also works closely in partnership with local wardens to deliver the highest level of service to residents.  Their liveried warden vehicles have been equipped with windscreen-mounted cameras and on-board DVRs, supplied by Rapid Vision Systems, for use in a variety of surveillance applications.  The vehicles have been deployed to capture evidence of anti-social behaviour, drug dealing and other such incidents with evidential quality images captured at distances of up to 200 metres.
“Rapid Vision Systems has shown that it understands what we are trying to achieve and has provided us with a range of CCTV solutions that are making a significant impact on reducing the incidence of anti-social behaviour and making Hounslow a safer place to live.  The company consistently produces what we require to combat the issues that need to be resolved,“ concluded Peter Jordan.
