Utility Associates, Inc. Key Developments

Clayton County Police Department Deploys Utility's BodyWorn™ Cameras

Utility, Inc. announced that the Clayton County Police Department—headquartered in Jonesboro, Georgia—will officially deploy 200 of Utility's BodyWorn™ body cameras, as well as 200 Rocket IoT-X™ devices, for in-car communication.

Atlanta Department of Corrections Deploys Utility's BodyWorn™ Police Body Cameras

Utility, Inc. officially announced the Atlanta Department of Corrections has deployed Utility's BodyWorn™ police body cameras—the only automated, policy-based, body-worn police camera currently available on the market. By deploying BodyWorn, the Atlanta Department of Corrections also has access to Utility's Smart Redaction™ software, which automatically redacts faces, body parts and other objects in a video to protect inmate and officer privacy. The software can selectively blur or "unblur" images based on need; users' specific privacy-policy restrictions; and local, state and federal laws. This unique feature minimizes lead-time to publish redacted video taken by a body-worn camera, eliminates added labor costs, and maximizes both accountability and transparency of law enforcement. Smart Redaction is a standard feature within Utility's AVaiL Web™ video management system.

Decatur Police Department Deploys Utility Associates, Inc.'s BodyWorn™ Cameras

Utility Associates, Inc. officially announced that the Decatur Police Department in Decatur, Georgia is currently deploying Utility's BodyWorn™ police body cameras—the only automated, policy-based body-worn police camera currently available on the market. The Decatur Police Department has equipped its police force of 47 officers with BodyWorn™ police cameras. In addition to BodyWorn™, Utility's Rocket™ vehicle router has been installed in 37 Decatur Police Department patrol cars to optimize each car with powerful and secure wireless internet capabilities for up to 1,500 feet around the vehicle. Utility's revolutionary BodyWorn™ camera system leverages the capabilities of a smart phone—unparalleled camera function, Wi-Fi connectivity, 4G LTE service and comprehensive GPS location system—and is the only available product to automatically start recording based on the individual police department's specific privacy policies using a number of policy-based triggers, including vehicle sensors and a built-in accelerometer. According to a recent national poll of 1,000 voters measuring the American public's perspectives of police body camera capabilities, two capabilities stand out in particular: 94% of those polled believe a body-worn camera should have an Officer Down Emergency Alert wireless reporting capability and 89% want Central Dispatch to be able to send out immediate Be On The Lookout (BOLO) alerts with pictures and text to all body-worn cameras. These two high rated capabilities enhance police officer safety, and both are included in Utility's Bodyworn camera system. In addition to its technological capabilities, BodyWorn™ offers automated real-time video uploading to a protected cloud-based storage system in a compressed HD format. This feature will enable the Decatur Police Department to store a larger quantity of video more securely and for a longer amount of time at a significantly lower cost compared to competing body-camera technology providers. The Decatur Police Department also has access to Utility's newly released redaction software, SmartRedaction™, which automatically identifies faces, body parts and other identifiable objects in a video and can selectively blur images based on need and specific privacy-policy restrictions as well as local, state and federal laws. This unique feature minimizes lead-time to publish redacted video taken by a body-worn camera, eliminates added labor costs and maximizes both accountability and transparency of law enforcement.
