Here's an example of how Active Solutions Change the World…
A few years ago we participated in a pilot project in one of New Orleans’ highest crime neighborhoods. The police knew one of the most active drug dealers but after multiple arrests they couldn’t get the concrete evidence they needed for a conviction. Everyone in the neighborhood knew what was going on, but no one wanted to talk. And who can blame them? The stakes were high and they feared for their family’s safety.
Active Solutions' SafeCityCams were deployed in this district and here's what happened:
The suspect showed up across the street from a playground.
Within minutes, he was surrounded by children from the playground.
We watched the camera monitors as he pulled from his pockets a handful of small packages and handed them to each of the children who then ran back onto the playground to play.
Throughout the next hour the man was approached by people who handed him money.
They talked as he pointed to the children. Each person would stagger onto the playground and approach a child to receive a small package from the child’s pocket. The adult would then wander away. One-by-one, the kids ran back to the dealer to collect their reward.
It all finally made sense. In every arrest the dealer had pockets full of cash but never any drugs. The neighbors swore he was distributing to the children but that was never proven. The detectives now had concrete evidence to make a case that would finally lead to an arrest and conviction. This was a prime example of a criminal with a mile-long arrest record finally being caught with technology. We had just broken the cycle of failed convictions. No human witness was needed. Cameras don't lie and they cannot be intimidated.
It was at that moment that I realized Active Solutions cameras and systems are an investment in our children's' future and integral to solving a more comprehensive societal problem.
