Boca Raton Police Department Leverages VidSys Physical Security Information Management Software for Third Presidential Debate

PSIM Software Provides Officers With One Unified View to Ensure Safe Travels for Motorcades to and From Lynn University

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2012) - VidSys, a leading provider of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, today announced that it collaborated with the Boca Raton Police Department to protect the Obama and Romney motorcades as they traveled to and from the third presidential debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. Providing one continuous view of the three mile route on a single screen, the VidSys PSIM software helped the Boca Raton Police Department monitor for, respond to and manage potential security threats that could have disrupted or delayed Monday night's event.

In advance of the presidential debate, the police department worked closely with VidSys to create a centralized, preconfigured view within the software that displayed all city traffic cameras along each motorcade's path. Deployed in the command center within the police department's administrative offices, the software enabled officers to monitor the route from start to finish easily, tracking the progression of each motorcade from one camera to the next as they traveled along city streets to the entrance of Lynn University.

The Boca Raton Police Department coordinated with the Secret Service, which oversaw the entire event, as well as representatives from Miami Dade and Broward Counties on security efforts surrounding the debate.

"The Boca Raton Police Department assumed essential security responsibilities for the presidential debate. In support of this mission, Boca Raton used the VidSys software platform seamlessly to integrate critical video assets into a single operating platform," said Michael P. Jackson, chairman and CEO of VidSys. "The Boca Raton Police Department is an innovator in security technology management and VidSys is proud to partner with them to assist in their vital work."

Other recent high-profile events where the VidSys PSIM software has been leveraged include the celebration of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial, the Baltimore Grand Prix, the annual Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally and Washington, D.C.'s annual Fourth of July Celebration.
