Comtex Surveillance System Saves Client $$ and Aggravation!

One of our existing clients, who chooses to remain anonymous but allowed us to post this story, invested in a surveillance system purchased and installed by Comtex. An employee, who was being disciplined with the intent of termination, had claimed to have been injured at a specific location and time. Our client reviewed the video footage and found no evidence that this “injury” occurred. Our client showed it to the insurance company and they denied the claim. Our client told us that footage “saved them from losing thousands of dollars.”

This same client, in the following month, had an employee who was moving some welding gas tanks in an unsafe way. The client had reviewed the footage and after confronting the employee with the evidence of his unsafe actions, he accepted termination without complaint.

Our client wrote us and stated:
“It turns out that the decision to purchase the system, made for completely different reasons, has benefited us in unexpected ways. Often I find that decisions I struggle with considering what I think are the important factors turn out better or worse because of things I didn’t anticipate.”

Using Cameras to Stop Drivers from Illegally Passing Stopped School Buses

Iowa is looking to purchase CCTV cameras to help enforce an Iowa law that increased penalties for drivers who illegally drive past a school bus if it is stopped on a road.

The law, typically referred to as Kadyn’s Law, suspends a driver’s privileges for 30 days for a first conviction, increasing it to 90 days for a second conviction and 180 days for a third conviction. The law was promulgated in response to the 2011 death of 7-year-old Kadyn Halverson, who was hit by a car when she was crossing the road to board a school bus.

Randy Meyer, who oversees transportation  at Mason City and Clear Lake schools, believes an exterior camera on school buses are needed to assist in identifying more violators. Without the camera, it is hard to identify a car when the violation occurs because they drive by so fast. Only about 10% of drivers who pass the buses illegally get reported to the police.If a license plate can be captured on video, a potential violator may think twice and stop.
