FALSE ALARMS The Fire Industry Association (FIA) is holding four seminars examining the recent update to BS 5839-1:2017, which relates to fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings. An extra date was added due to the events popularity, with two seminars already fully booked. Published on 1 September the update introduces changes influenced by the findings of a research project called Live investigations of false fire alarms , carried out by BRE in partnership with the FIA.

The research made 36 recommendations for reducing false alarms. Following publication of the report in early 2016, the FIA s Fire Detection and Alarm Council undertook their own research project to incorporate the recommendations into related fire standards. The seminars, which are fully CPD accredited, are free to attend. The FIA recommends booking as early as possible as places are limited and are being booked up fast.

Eagle Eye Networks introduces analytics to the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS

cloud surveillance Eagle Eye Networks has released the first phase of its video analytics platform, which offers users line crossing, intrusion detection and object counting functions within the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS. Businesses needn t necessarily replace existing cameras to install Eagle Eye Analytics, because it will function on any camera including analogue variants that is supported by the Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS. Here are some advantages that the platform offers by dint of being cloud-based, according to Eagle Eye Networks: Cloud benefits Rapid deployment Users needn t install additional hardware or software to access the analytics, which are activated from the web dashboard or mobile app No requirement for on-site technicians, remote project management or system replacement Available to customers for as little as $4-5 per camera, per month Analytics functions Line crossing.

Detects when an object crosses a virtual line. Users can specify direction and can receive notifications. Useful for receiving notifications when a security boundary (eg a fence, restricted area or one-way road) is crossed. Also well suited to monitoring building entrances, loading docks and parking lots. Intrusion detection. Detects when an object encroaches into an area defined by the customer, generating an instant notification. Object counting. Counting how many objects cross a line in both directions, object counting is useful for counting cars as well as people. Total daily count and current count delta are displayed.

Offering benefits beyond just security, the analytics generates meaningful insights from which businesses especially retailers can optimise processes and enhance customer experience. Eagle Eye Networks says The Eagle Eye Cloud Security Camera VMS Analytics are a true cloud solution that are available on demand, per camera, instantly activated, and customers are only charged for what they use, says Eagle Eye Network s founder and CEO, Dean Drako. Over the next few years, customers will have the option to turn on more sophisticated analytics as Eagle Eye Networks cloud-based model leads the physical security industry in making analytics more functional and more accessible. A customer says If cloud-based solutions appeal to large enterprises on account of their rapid scalability, then smaller businesses that choose them often do so because they unburden them of so many system management and maintenance tasks. Aaron Diaz, owner of Gulf Coast Hardware stores in Southwest Florida, explains how he intends to deploy the new analytics platform: Our store is nearly 6,000 square feet with additional outside retail areas and I m really excited about the ability to receive alerts based on activity in areas I specify. The counting will come in handy for me to gain a better understanding of the number of visitors (daily), who may or may not make a purchase. About Eagle Eye Networks Founded in Austin, Texas in 2012, Eagle Eye Networks has in a short space of time become the undisputed leader of cloud-based video surveillance solutions in North America. Having acquired Panasonic Cloud Management Services Europe BV in June 2017, it can now claim dominance of the European market too. Eagle Eye Networks, which also has offices in Asia, supports cloud and on-premise recording as well as both digital and analogue cameras all accessed via the web or mobile applications.

The company says it offers bank-level security and encryption. Eagle Eye s RESTful API platform and Big Data Video Framework accommodates indexing, search, retrieval, and analysis of live and archived video. Eagle Eye s open Video API has facilitated integrations with alarm monitoring, third party analytics, security dashboards, and point of sale system integrations.

How to Become a Private Investigator

The field of private investigations is highly respected, evolving significantly over the years to include specialized work in computer forensics and corporate fraud investigations in addition to mainstays like missing persons and marital infidelity cases. PIs perform a wide range of investigative services, and are now just as often found serving as contractors for law enforcement cyber crimes units, insurance companies and human resource teams as they are investigating cases related to divorce and child custody to resolve matters in the family courts. PIs most often work for larger private investigations agencies or operate their own independent firms. They typically work on a contract basis for both public and private sector clients, and almost always hold a state license permitting them to conduct investigations within the parameters of state laws concerning surveillance protocols and privacy.

Find Info For Your State

How To Become A Private Investigator
Although requirements and processes differ from state to state, in most states becoming a private investigator follows a similar general outline:

Step 1. Learn About State Licensure

A dedicated PI licensing board, often operating under a larger state licensing authority, is typically in place to regulate and oversee the licensing process for individual private investigators and PI firms.

For example, Texas licenses its private investigators through the Private Security Board within the Texas Department of Public Safety. In Tennessee PIs are licensed through the Private Investigative and Polygraph Commission, which is part of the Department of Commerce and Insurance. Even in states without a statewide licensing process, there are still often regulations and/or licensing requirements in some cities or jurisdictions. For example, although there are no state licensing requirements in Alabama, a number of cities in the state, including Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile, have their own licensing processes. Further, even states that don t license individual investigators still require PI businesses to be licensed and adhere to a number of standard regulations related to everything from privacy laws and impersonating law enforcement to insurance and bonding.

A few states have entered into reciprocity agreements, which allow private investigators to conduct business between states without holding a separate private investigator s license (provided the investigation is started in the investigator s home state). Currently, the following states have reciprocity agreements in place:

  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Louisiana
  • North Carolina
  • Oklahoma
  • Tennessee
  • Virginia

Because private investigators are regulated and licensed at the state level, education, training and other requirements can differ significantly from state to state. This makes it imperative that you research your state s regulations and licensing requirements as part of your career preparation.

Step 2. Meet Minimum Requirements for Licensure

Not all individuals are eligible to become private investigators. Although minimum requirements for licensure differ between states, candidates for licensure must be of a certain age, which is usually between 21 and 25.

Other minimum license requirements require a candidate to:

  • Be a United States citizen or legal U.S. resident
  • Possess a high school diploma or GED certificate
  • Have no felony convictions or other convictions involving crimes of moral turpitude
  • Have no dishonorable discharge from the U.S. military

Step 3. Meet Education and Experience Requirements

Perhaps the largest difference between states lies with minimum requirements for education and experience. Although most states do not require a candidate to possess an education to become a private investigator, most professionals in this field nevertheless pursue an associate s or bachelor s degree in criminal justice or a related field so as to achieve a working knowledge of the criminal justice system law enforcement practices. A common requirement for licensure is experience, although it should be noted that many states allow candidates to substitute education for experience. For example, the minimum experience requirement in New Hampshire for private investigators is four years, although candidates with an associate s or bachelor s degree in criminal justice may substitute their education for two of the required four years.

Related private investigator experience may include working as an adjuster, risk manager, claims investigator, director of security for a company, director for a licensed security service, or as a law enforcement officer for a federal, state or local police department.

Step 4. Pass the State Exam for Licensure

Some states require candidates to pass a state exam before they can achieve licensure as a private detective. State jurisprudence examinations, which are usually taken after filing for a state license, assess candidates on laws and procedural protocols specific to the state in which they are working. Exam content often covers regulations and rules regarding working as a private investigator or operating a private investigative business.

Step 5. Obtain Mandatory Firearms Training

In states that allow private investigators to carry a firearm or weapon, candidates must complete mandatory firearms training to become certified. Most states accept training through the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Rifle Association, SIG Sauer, Smith & Wesson, or through an accredited police standards and training council firearms instructor school.

Step 6. Apply for State Licensure

The final step to becoming licensed to work as a private investigator is applying for state licensure. In most instances, candidates are required to provide the state licensing and regulatory body with the following:

  • A notarized application
  • A full set of fingerprints for a comprehensive background investigation
  • Personal and professional references
  • Documentation regarding professional experience
  • Documentation and/or diplomas regarding education
  • Proof of a surety bond (Most states require private investigators to hold a surety bond of no less than $10,000.)
  • An application fee, license feel, fingerprint fee, and background investigation fee

Step 7. Maintain State Licensure

Private investigators must renew their license according to state law, with most states requiring a biennial renewal.

Along with a renewal application, private investigators can expect to undergo an updated background investigation and provide the state licensing and regulatory body with a copy of their current surety bond.

Further, some states require continuing education for license renewal, and continuing education for firearms certification is commonplace.

The pioneer behind the world s first unpickable lock: Abloy celebrates 110th birthday

Security lock pioneer Abloy is celebrating its 110 th birthday. The venerable Finnish brand, which merged with ASSA in 1994, revolutionised the locking industry when it patented the disc cylinder-operated lock in 1919. The innovation was the brainchild of founder Emil Henriksson, who in 1907 decided to redeploy the rotating detainer discs inside cash registers inside locks.

The precision mechanics engineer patented the idea 12 years later and registered the Abloy trademark. Virtually unpickable, the lock propelled Abloy to being a market leader not just in Finland but globally too. Henrickkson later integrated electromechanical technology with the mechanical lock, during the 1960s and 1970s. In 1994, Abloy merged with ASSA to form the ASSA ABLOY group. In recent years Abloy has developed access control systems such as PROTEC2 CLIQ and CLIQ Connect, which reduced the number of keys required. Abloy s product range includes both mechanical and electric locks, as well as access control systems, which are deployed in a wide range of sectors. From museums and sporting venues to hospitals, airports and government buildings, its locks protect some of the world s most iconic landmarks.
