ISM, in collaboration with systems integrator Scotshield, has announced an integrated custody security management system for Police Scotland at the new Kittybrewster facility in Aberdeen. The custody suite includes 60 cells, a virtual court, an identity parade suite and accommodation for a local community policing team.
The newly completed custody suite includes a number of security subsystems integrated into one PSIM solution (Genesys2), including CCTV, access control, intercoms, affray alarms, intruder detection, fire detection and cell call.
Genesys2 facilitates the integration of third-party hardware on a single software platform with a GUI showing real-time active icons enabling users to see the activity and events as and when they happen. A complex log enables managers to produce audit trails. System interoperability is accomplished via an action list application. This enables every device for each system to interact via cause and effect scenarios with graphical maps and memos/instructions relating to the individual alarms, which are then communicated to the operators. All events are automatically triggered when a device changes state. Human error is therefore eliminated.
Commenting on the project, ISM’s Business Development Director, John Waite, said, “We are delighted to have provided the Genesys integrated security system and our Ultimate 3000 Cell Call system for Police Scotland.”
