ABBOTSFORD, B.C., Canada — Gatekeeper Systems Inc. is pleased to announce that it has received a new contract from Aledo Independent School District in Texas for an undisclosed number of high definition body worn recorders and cameras.
Aledo ISD is a current customer of Gatekeeper, having used Gatekeeper's school bus video technology for several years. In a recently completed contract valued at $179,585, the Company completed the supply, installation and configuration of its wireless school bus video systems for Aledo ISD.
Aledo ISD's Police Department will now be using Gatekeeper's XFORCE high definition body worn recorders and cameras for use on their law enforcement officers.
Chawn Gilliland, Chief of Police of Aledo ISD commented, "The XFORCE high definition body worn recorder is the best we've seen. It's rugged designed is well suited for law enforcement mobile applications. The 160 degree field of view sees more than the human eye can see and the high definition video provide outstanding picture quality".
Chief Gilliland also added, "the Aledo Independent School District Police Department was developed to provide a safer educational environment for the students, faculty and staff of our ever-growing district. It strives to achieve this goal by maintaining a high state of readiness and providing crime prevention initiatives. Officers are driven to create a better atmosphere for greater learning and teaching, and are sworn to uphold and enforce all state and federal laws".
Doug Dyment, President and CEO of Gatekeeper stated, "We are excited about Aledo ISD expanding to our high definition body worn recorder and camera system. There are over 30 million law enforcement officers and security personnel worldwide. Officers in the field need reliable imaging devices to protect themselves against false accusations as well as provide irrefutable evidence required for prosecution. Our XFORCE high definition body worn recorder is a good fit for this niche. Many school districts have their own police forces and are showing strong interest in our new high definition imaging device which makes it a natural fit for entry into this market."
The XFORCE high definition body recorder and camera is designed as a lightweight, rugged imaging device that attaches to an officer's vest. It records high definition video, audio, and other meta data which allow law enforcement agencies to search for past video by time and date or officer identification.
