Crime affecting the utilities industry in the US
Many utility sites, like substations, are inherently vulnerable to crime as they are often in open, remote locations. They are prone to break-ins, vandalism, theft, sabotage and even terrorist threats these days.
Challenges Facing the Utilities Industry
Netwatch offers our clients a trusted and proven security solution
For liability, the NERC/FERC regulations and even copper wire theft reasons, it is important to prevent trespassers from entering these sites. However, CCTV cannot do this, and security guards typically have such large geographical areas to cover they aren’t able to respond immediately to incidents. In contrast, Netwatch visually detects suspicious activity, deters the individuals with live, personalized audio warnings and calls in law enforcement.
Utility sites pose considerable health and safety risks. Unauthorized entry could result in loss of life or severe bodily harm.
Opportunistic criminals are drawn to utility sites due to the high value of copper wiring and related equipment.
Use a range of management tools on multiple sites through proprietary mobile and desktop applications.
