|Bosch DiBos CCTV system protects Glastonbury Festival from the threat of crime including theft|
The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world. The festival is best known for its contemporary music, but also features dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret and many other arts. At each of the last three festivals over 700 acts played on over 80 stages to a capacity of 177,500. Crime figures released by Avon and Somerset Police, showed that arrests for the 2008 festival stood at 134, down on 2007 and that 99.7 per cent of revellers did not experience any crime.
West Haddon-based Crimesecure Surveillance Services Ltd has worked very closely with several police forces for many years, this partnership involves providing advice and support for local crime reduction initiatives, as well as providing mobile CCTV coverage for crime operations and major events.
Helen Healey, Installations Manager at Crimesecure Surveillance Services Ltd, explains: "We have been working with organisers at Glastonbury for a few years now and it was clear from the start what was required.
"As soon as we became aware of the benefits of DiBos the ease of accessing images, the quality of those images and the speed of set up, we had to test it in the field. Since first trialling the equipment, it has become a mainstay in our systems. I would not specify anything else."
