Edesix, UK-based provider of Body Worn Cameras, will be joined by Vigilant Solutions to showcase its new Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology at Parkex 2019, in addition to Edesix's renowned Wearable Camera solutions.
Also part of the Motorola Solutions group, Vigilant Solutions has been supplying automated number plate recognition cameras and software to law enforcement for more than 10 years to locate vehicles of interest and solve crimes faster. These cameras and software are now available to parking agencies—providing a cost-effective enforcement solution.
Assist parking agencies
ANPR technology can assist parking agencies in discovering vehicles in violation, to collect outstanding fines, more efficiently enforce paid and permit parking spots, or take other appropriate actions. Vigilant Solutions ANPR expert from the US Alex Tallentire, will be at the Edesix stand to demonstrate the latest technology in this field.

Edesix Body Worn Cameras, such as the VideoBadge VB-300 series, have been deployed by UK-based parking agencies for a number of years now. Front line parking staff such as civil enforcement officers (CEOs) are often subjected to verbal and even physical abuse, so ensuring these patrol officers remain safe has been a priority of councils and their contractors.
Validate parking fines
The use of Body Worn Cameras is a proven way to deter aggression whilst capturing evidence which can be used in court. BWC's can also be utilised to validate parking fines and quash complaints or false claims.
Richie McBride, managing director of Edesix, explains: “The use of Body Worn Cameras is a proven way of tackling the growing problem of abusive behaviour in the parking sector. BWC's reduce the number of false allegations against enforcement officers and instances of aggression and violence, helping those doing a difficult job feel safer and more protected, particularly when working alone. Should an assault occur, the video and audio recording can provide evidence of abuse and attacks that can be used to prosecute offenders. Footage can also prove or disprove allegations made about misconduct by patrol officers.”
