SECOM Vision Foils Oil Theft Bid

SECOM Vision Foils Oil Theft Bid

Security Requirement

This oil depot, in a busy industrial area in Essex, is a base for a fleet of tankers that deliver heating oil to residential and other customers. To cover the area inside the depot’s security fence, where the tankers are frequently parked overnight, SECOM installed cameras for our Vision monitored electronic guarding service over four years ago. Vision was considered the ideal solution for securing this high value, potentially dangerous site. In the event of a breach in security by intruders, our strategically placed cameras would be activated by motion sensors, sending immediate images via a secure link to the SECOM Video Response Centre for assessment by trained control centre operators.

SECOM’s Security Solution

SECOM Vision recently proved it effectiveness by foiling a late night raid at the oil depot. Our sensitive cameras were triggered by movement in the depot compound that alerted the duty operator in our Video Response Centre, located in our Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), more than 40 miles from the scene of the incident. After notifying the depot’s keyholder, our control centre operator continued to monitor the situation. When two intruders were seen filling various containers direct from the parked tankers, the operator called the police and updated the keyholder. One intruder escaped but police made an arrest at the scene and found a number of containers filled with oil.

SECOM’s successful response to the fuel depot raid underlines the importance of professionally monitored security solutions and an excellent relationship between control centre operators and the police. Our security professionals are highly trained to assess situations on customers’ premises and to deliver the most appropriate response. We are able to filter out ‘false alarms’, calling for police support only where absolutely necessary, as in this case.
