New Grafton Correctional Centre

NORTHERN Pathways, a consortium including Serco, John Holland and John Laing, has begun the initial works for the new Grafton Correctional Centre.

The centre will be made up of individual facilities which will hold 3 different categories of inmates safely, securely and entirely separately. It will include a 1000-bed male maximum-security facility; a 300-bed female maximum-security facility; and a 400-bed male minimum security facility. It will be the largest correctional facility in Australia when complete.

Both the centre itself, and the programs that inmates will participate in, are designed with the goal of reducing reoffending and making our communities safer.

Chief executive officer of John Holland, Joe Barr, said the company had industry leading experience in the construction of correctional facilities, including currently delivering the 1000-bed Ravenhall Prison in Melbourne.

GENETEC will unveil Citigraf, a new public safety decision support system, created for citywide law enforcement and public safety agencies this week. 

Citigraf collects and manages information provided by integrated CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) systems, CCTV footage, ALPR data, RMS (record management systems) and more, to immediately identify and display the exact location of an event using icons on a map from a built-in geographical information system (GIS). 

Thanks to a collaborative integration with gunshot detection technology, response teams can be notified with a gun icon, a map location and nearby cameras when a gunshot has been detected. 

With this combined information, Genetec Citigraf, distributed in Australia by Hills, provides rapid and actionable alerts to help law enforcement gain control of a mission to potentially stop crimes and save lives. ♦

INTEGRATOR ARA has attained diamond level in Hikvision’s dealer partner programme.

It’s been 2 decades since the first IP surveillance systems were installed in Australia, first at Crown Casino in Melbourne and a year later at Star Casino in Sydney. These were basic solutions compared to the current generations of digital CCTV technology but even the first generations highlighted the power and capability of digital video and represent the birthplace of digital video surveillance in Australia.

EXACTLY 20 years ago, in 1997 I was consultant on my first large-scale digital CCTV project for Star Casino in Sydney, a site which at that time was called Sydney Harbour Casino. One of the earliest digital CCTV systems in the world of this size, it comprised 50 DVRs and more than 200 cameras. The only similar solution of this type I’m aware of was completed just one year earlier at Crown Casino in Melbourne. So, in a way, this is an anniversary for the whole industry.
