When we’re meeting with officers and officials from police departments and public safety organizations, we inevitably come to the question- “Why should we use your video surveillance platform over some of the other options out there?” It’s a great question that gets to the heart of why we built our technology in the first place- what makes fūsus different from other video security products on the market? To break it down succinctly, here are the top 5 reasons why fūsus is probably the best fit for your police department or public safety agency’s needs.
Whether it’s a natural disaster, an incident at a major event, or an active shooter or terrorist attack, situations inevitably arise where a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional task force is required to immediately respond.
