Architects, Electrical Engineers, and Professional Engineers Invited to Review ESC’s Engineering Support Services | #ESC_LLC #Permit #Specification #Blueprint| “The job of putting together a set of specifications for construction projects is hard enough without all the fine details that goes into upgrades for fire alarms and other electronic systems,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio. “Let ESC do the preparatory work for you by visiting the job sites, taking inventory, and assuring that your specifications and blueprints provide the right information.” For more information, visit ESC’s Website at http://bit.ly/2JgZz2V, or call 614-754-1393.

What’s the latest in surveillance systems?

What’s the latest in surveillance systems? | #ESC_LLC #video #surveillance #schools | In campus environments, there are unique challenges not present in a typical commercial surveillance system deployment. A deployment that spans multiple buildings can seem complicated for operators whose main job focus may not be full-time video monitoring.

There are technologies that are available to help mitigate these issues. Some are new, and others have been in existence for years. It’s important to review and be aware of these technologies, especially if you’re thinking about upgrading your existing system. http://ow.ly/W1hFT

Along with increased police presence, schools are using funds to beef up security and train staff to better protect students — and teaching students to protect themselves as well. Meanwhile, lawmakers in Raleigh are turning more attention to the issue of safer schools.

Schools, businesses turn to non-lethal solutions for active shooter mitigation | #TpromoCom #School #Shooter #Mitigation | As part of an effort to bridge the gap between arming people and doing nothing, some are now advocating for the use of non-lethal weapons to help neutralize active shooters. A bill recently introduced in Michigan, for example, would enable teachers in the state to arm themselves with pepper spray and Tasers. http://ow.ly/7NRs30kQJJe  (scroll down)

One company that is working to outfit schools and private organizations across the nation with a similar non-lethal option is Alternative Defense Strategies. Based in the Cleveland-area in Ohio, the company has developed a self-defense solution dubbed “Safe Zone,” which features a canister of patented pepper gel spray that can be used to disorient a shooter or other violent attacker.

Terrorists Are Going to Use Artificial Intelligence

Terrorists Are Going to Use Artificial Intelligence | #TpromoCom #ArtificialIntelligence #AI #Terrorist | There is a general tendency among counterterrorism analysts to understate rather than hyperbolize terrorists’ technological adaptations. In 2011 and 2012, most believed that the “Arab Spring” revolutions would marginalize jihadist movements. But within four years, jihadists had attracted a record number of foreign fighters to the Syrian battlefield, in part by using the same social media mobilization techniques that protesters had employed to challenge dictators like Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Hosni Mubarak, and Muammar Qaddafi.

Surveillance cameras, free Wi-Fi coming to Erie’s Perry Square | #TpromoCom #VideoSurveillance #SmartCity #Government | The Secure Smart City pilot project could expand citywide someday, depending on feedback and funding.

Residents and visitors will soon see free, fast, public Wi-Fi in Perry Square, as well as a video surveillance system in the park that can alert law enforcement to potential threats.

In addition, energy-efficient LED lights are planned for 66 existing utility poles downtown, a move that could lower city utility costs.

The technology upgrades in the area encompassing State Street, between Sixth and 12th streets, could expand citywide someday, based on community feedback and available funding.

City Council wants $100M to put security cameras in all schools | #TpromoCom #School #Camera #VideoSurveillance | All schools would have security cameras by 2024 under a new City Council proposal.

The council is asking City Hall for $100 million to install cameras next year in some of the 500-plus schools that do not have video surveillance.

Councilman Paul Vallone (D-Queens), who lobbied Speaker Corey Johnson’s office to include the ask in the council’s fiscal year 2019 budget request sent to Mayor de Blasio’s office earlier this month, said the cameras go hand-in-hand with his proposal to lock all school entrances.
