Do Courthouses Need Security And Surveillance Systems

October 17th, 2019

The truth of the matter is that surveillance and security systems are important for all sorts of establishments. From homes to offices, and even to businesses. This nifty system that protects prevents a lot of harmful and disruptive issues from ever happening. However, if there’s one place that truly needs it, it has to be a courthouse.


A courthouse is a building that’s dedicated to the court of law and the serving of justice. This is where hearings, plea deals, and sentencing happens. Tensions can mount within a courthouse but why is it crucial for these establishments to install the most top-notch security system possible?


Protect Witnesses, Juries, And Basically Just About Everyone

As we’ve said, tensions can easily flare up inside the courthouse. Just a few words from any of the parties involved could result in violence, or in worse cases, a fatal attack. While security personnel is present whenever the courthouse is active, they won’t always be there to respond to an attack, especially if they don’t know if it’s happening in the first place.


Security systems will give the personnel access and visibility on all corners of the courthouse. If ever an attack occurs anywhere, they will be capable of responding immediately too, thus preventing injuries, fatalities, or other forms of harm to those involved. Who knows how many lives have been saved because of this system.


Keep Documents Safe

The courthouse not only houses people of the law, but it also houses documents, which are crucial in implementing the law. These documents are always at risk of being stolen or being tampered by others. In case these attempts are successful, then the law won’t be properly imposed as the documents themselves have been compromised.


The courthouse should treat its documents much like how a store would treat its merchandise. It must be cared for and it must be under heavy lock and key so any attempts to get it will fail. This is one of the more practical uses of a surveillance system in the courthouse and it is also the most essential too.


Keep Proceedings Flow Properly

Lastly, it’s important to keep in mind that court proceedings won’t be able to properly function if security systems are missing from it. If attacks happen or if documents get stolen, then court hearings will take longer and justice will be served just as long. There’s nothing worse than having to wait for over a year to get the justice you deserve.


Security systems promote faster hearings by making sure that any hurdles are dealt with before they actually occur. If you inspect the most productive courthouses in the world, you’ll see that the one thing they have in common is that they all have security systems protecting all human and material assets.

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
