Saudi Arabia is fighting crime and protecting its citizens by using mobile surveillance and digital CCTV solutions.

The Riyadh Traffic Police and Riyadh Highways Police recently adopted Nurizon Corporation's ICOP 20/20W mobile video and audio recording system, with dual Arabic and English interfaces, for use in authorized vehicles.

The ICOP 20/20W system is currently being used in the United States and allows police officers to have a 360 degree view outside their vehicle, using multiple cameras installed inside the car.

The system archives and records all audio and video to a removable hard drive, which is then downloaded to the police control centre system.

Bill Russell, group engineering and services director for Nurizon Corporation commented that: " The technology available in our current systems allow officers to have the ability to be able to record, archive and export material which can be used for evidence and legal purposes, ensuring that the officers on the street have a truly independent witness at all times".
