Charleston PD improves public safety with Getac Video Solutions.

Every day, the Charleston Police Department’s 459 officers report for duty ready to protect the city’s 130,000 year-round residents and its 5 million annual visitors, making public safety their biggest concern. With their increase in technology to keep up with the large number of people, the department’s city-hosted server was not able to support the increasing amounts of data and evidence. 

The increase in the use of technology had already proven beneficial for the Charleston Police Department with a 70% reduction in violent crime over 9 years. However, while the department was growing and including more and more beneficial technologies, they were straining the city’s infrastructure.


How Charleston handled the problem of data growth.

The value that was added by bringing devices and data together.

The enhanced situational awareness the department gained.

Superior technology from Getac Video Solutions and the Azure Government cloud platform.

“We need to store everything our cameras see, 24 hours a day, for a minimum of 14 days. That’s a lot of data. But we can support those needs with the Azure Government cloud’s scalability.”

-Tony Elder, Deputy Chief of the Charleston Police Department
