Indiana jail upgrades to more effective surveillance

Anderson, In

When the Madison County Jail in Anderson, Indiana had issues with its legacy video surveillance system they looked for a new system that would provide the critical requirements of reliability, ease-of-use, and video archiving capacity.

The March Networks video surveillance system was installed by Convergint Technologies, and included state-of-the-art 9000 Series IP recorders, ME4 Series IP cameras, and Command Enterprise video management software. The recorders’ eight removable hard drives and 80 Tb of storage capacity allow the jail to comply with a County ordinance requiring five years of video storage.

“Convergint did a good job of balancing retention and video quality, which was important because of the county’s requirement for five years of video storage,” said Commander Tyler Jugg, Madison County Jail. “They were able to adjust the IP camera settings to get excellent quality video, while also making sure that we had the hard drive space we needed, because in a facility like ours, retention is just as important as clarity.”

With the new system, higher quality video, increased archiving capability, and real-time health monitoring now ensure the availability of video evidence required by the jail to investigate incidents, deter violence, and keep correctional officers safe.

“With March Networks, I don’t have to worry about the video not being there, and it’s very user friendly.” concluded Commander Tyler Jugg, Madison County Jail.
