Riot Police Tactics – CCTV Identifies and Prevents Rioters…

Riot Police Tactics developed with and for Riot Police

“A riot CCTV camera that just looks in one direction during a riot is useless for complete situational awareness. Viseum cameras are essential” (UK Riot Police).

With 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 protesters. 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 avoid an 8 to 24 hour manned surveillance operation, a crowd behaviour surveillance algorithm was customised for when and how to automatically send the required information to the Riot Police Tactics Command Control and Riot Police senior officers. The Viseum CiVMS video archiving system was customised to help the Riot Police bookmark certain events, faces and people in the crowd for each riot police operation. A design for unbreakable radio communications was also required to ensure the Police Command Control did 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 was delighted to help Malaysia’s Riot Police deliver such a peaceful event.
