Riot Police Tactics CCTV Stops Rioting…

Riot Police Tactics developed with and for Royal Malaysia Police




Viseum UK Group Group President Stuart Thompson meets with Dato’ Abdul Hamid Mohd Ali the Deputy Chief Commissioner of Kuala Lumpur Police and Commander of Royal Malaysia Police Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) to discuss riot police tactics. The title of Dato’ is for Malaysia’s highest ranking officers and similar to an English knighthood, and was given to Abdul Hamid Mohd Ali for his dedication to Malaysia’s policing by the King of Malaysia Abdul Halim of Kedah.

Recent world news reported of thousands of people at a political rally in Kuala Lumpur. Rioting was not only widely expected during this event but it was also Malaysia’s largest ever crowd of protestors. After Viseum listened to the challenges faced by Malaysia’s Riot Police Tactics, Viseum customised its Riot CCTV solution to operate in the way needed to deliver automated situational awareness for police riot control success.


Riot police tactics using CCTV for deterrent


Firstly the Malaysian language was added to the Viseum CiVMS Video Management System. To save an 8 – 24 hour manned surveillance operation a crowd behavior surveillance algorithm was customised for when and how to automatically send the required information to Riot Police Tactics Command Control and Riot Police senior officers. The Viseum CiVMS video archiving system customised to help the Riot Police bookmark certain events, faces and people in the crowd for each riot police operation. A design of unbreakable radio communications was also required to ensure Riot Police Tactics Command Control do not lose valuable evidence and information.

Key to the success of these Riot Police Tactics was the fact that the vast majority of the Malaysian people who start and join riots are in fact employed because riots only happen during the weekend. So, as there is no escaping the vast coverage of Viseum cameras, and nobody wants their face recognized on broadcast quality HD cameras, Viseum is delighted to help Malaysia’s Riot Police deliver such a peaceful event.
