The Taitung Police, based in Taitung County, Taiwan, are tasked with investigating criminal cases and traffic accidents with minimal video surveillance infrastructure. As a result, they rely heavily on evidence captured by private surveillance devices and community cooperation in sharing evidence resources.
Historically, the police department had to manually review this footage, analyzing video second-by-second to identify the people and vehicles involved in each case. This resulted in slow and inefficient investigations and forced leadership to choose between sending officers to the field to prevent crime or dedicating their time to reviewing video surveillance.
The Taitung County Police Bureau decided to implement an AI-driven video analytics platform from BriefCam to address the surveillance needs of the police department. The analytics platform has helped police in Taitung County streamline investigations, reduce the time and manpower required to review evidence, and free up officers for more efficient and effective policing.
The integration of security analytics helped streamline video search and forensic investigation, based on a wide range of filters. Investigators are now able to pinpoint persons and objects of interest in video by filtering based on people classifications (male, female, child), clothing characteristics (color, hat, mask) as well as speed, direction or path of travel.
As a result, video investigations can now be conducted by a single officer, freeing the others to actively serve their community.
