About Sentinel Overwatch Services

Sentinel Overwatch Services was formed to augment force protection assets in the field in real time to deliver the most optimal security results. The rise of crime led to the need for private industry to supplement emergency services with professional security services. This industry change required security services to rethink how to best secure persons, places and things.

 

The first wave of overwatch systems, now considered legacy models, required video monitoring from remote locations. This led to many different security problems, namely that remote monitoring employees living and working overseas or outside of the jurisdiction are not available as witnesses for criminal or civil proceedings. Additionally, remote monitoring leads to increased cycle and response time, or the amount of time it takes to respond to an active security threat.

With Sentinel Overwatch Services (SOS), these problems have been mitigated utilizing a decentralized management system, placing the management of the video analytics into the hands of on-the-ground protection assets. For example, when the SOS artificial-intelligence analytics positively identifies a threat at a Client’s property, the first action is to notify the on duty patrol officer in the immediate vicinity of the property. The notification includes a situation report with locations, activity details, as well as live camera feeds.

 

Sentinel’s decentralized platform provides several benefits to the Client. First, real-time on site monitoring empowers the security asset to retrieve a first-hand description of the suspect. Second, decentralization decreases response time. Again, legacy systems increase cycle-time, the amount of time to get a safety asset in route to an emergency. Third, remote viewing capabilities allow the protection asset to make a proper suspect identification. Fourth, the live link allows the guard or officer to witness potential crimes, providing a firsthand account, which best empowers protection assets to make optimal in field decisions. Fifth, the decrease in emergency response times will increase the likelihood that the suspect will be caught, trespassed and/or arrested. This is key because statistics show that interdiction leads to lower levels of crime.
