Airport Receives Award of Distinction by IACP with Help from EyeCam
Montreal’s Montreal-Trudeau International Airport receives IACP Award
Montreal, QC, CANADA — A dramatic reduction in stolen vehicles has led Aéroports de Montréal’s (ADM) Airport Patrol, which has the mandate to protect passengers, personnel and facilities against all threats to civil aviation at Montréal–Trudeau and Montréal–Mirabel airports to receive the Vehicle Theft Award of Merit (2009), by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
ADM’s Airport Patrol embarked on an ambitious program in 2005 to address the serious issue of reported stolen vehicles. Under the guidance of Mr. Pierre Goupil (Head of Airport Security) a series of measures were implemented to effectively address the problem such as; establishing theft patterns, increased patrol, effective use of surveillance equipment and increased awareness among staff. As part of its security arsenal, ADM implemented IEG’s Secur-e-Park™ license plate reader at the multilevel parking exit to determine when vehicles were leaving and who was driving.
The Secur-e-Park™ system, implemented at ADM, includes camera systems and sensors controlled by highly reliable software designed to enable staff to quickly and easily review vehicle license plates and driver identities. The solution has a series of well-researched redundancies designed to ensure that 100 percent of vehicles in the monitored area are photographed. A comprehensive search tool then delivers on each query submitted by security personnel and creates security dossiers for future review and analysis.
IEG congratulates ADM’s Airport Patrol in attaining such a distinctive recognition by the IACP. The award reinforces IEG’s philosophy that ensuring customer success is at the center of its business.
Secur-e-Park™ systems are ideal for monitoring public and private areas and can be configured to use video-capture and analysis in a variety of forms; fixed installations (similar to those successfully employed at Montreal’s airport), semi-permanent (as with our EyeCam™ speed bump solution) or hand-held, portable form factor (as with our Prowler™ system).
