If, or when, an intrusion into a secure site occurs, the first thing that must happen is detection of the intrusion. Following the initial detection, a tracking system can assist and aid the response force. A tracking system can carry out a number of functions:
- Identify where an intruder is to assist a faster conclusion to the incident
- Identify where an intruder has been to assist searching / post event recovery
Automated tracking across a site is primarily undertaken in one of two ways:
- CCTV with Video analytics
The tracking of individuals via video analytics is dealt with under the "NPSA video analytics programme".
See the "Security manager's guide to radar for site security applications" document for a guide to using radar systems.
