Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) has just completed a major project to install an innovative IP-CCTV system to improve the safety management and security of our harbour for the benefit of all users.
The primary purpose of this new CCTV system is to assist CHC in fulfilling its statutory duties and the safe management of harbour activities, whilst enhancing security and enforcement capabilities within the harbour authority’s area of jurisdiction.
The Commission, the local community and other harbour users will also benefit from the following:
- Enhanced safety and security for harbour users: The CCTV will act as a visible deterrent to any persons contemplating breaching the Cowes Harbour General Directions and other enforceable laws (such as theft and criminal damage).
- CCTV 24/7 coverage will supplement CHC’s Harbour Patrol capabilities.
- The safety and security of harbour activities can be monitored and analysed leading to the improvement of operations.
- The provision of live images to the Harbour Office incident control room to aid the remote command and control of an appropriate response in the event of an emergency.
