The goals included capturing specific areas of concern, providing a real-time live feed viewable from Salisbury Police Dispatch, provide access to live and recorded video for police and end users (WMDT and Henson Foundation for the first phase), and building a scalable infrastructure that easily accommodates additional cameras and end users. Current (and future) end users have access to video from the cameras on their respective buildings, while the police have access to all the cameras on the network.
In December of 2011, soon after the cameras were deployed, the system was put to the test when a large fight broke out downtown. Hundreds of people were seen leaving a nightclub (no longer in business), engaging in the large brawl. Salisbury Police were monitoring the cameras real-time from their headquarters and the first officer arrived within two minutes.
The system can be expanded by adding cameras on other downtown buildings or properties, but other possible future expansions include free public Wi-Fi hotspots and secure law enforcement network access points. Such access points allow officers to log in in to their department resources without incurring the costs of a cellular data carrier, saving both the city and department money.
