Solve Illegal Dumping

Solve Illegal Dumping

People are suffering because of the blight and diseases causes by illegal dumping that is occurring in their community.  Regardless of where the dump sites are, the visual impact causes feelings of low value and depression in individuals who see it.  Even if the person consciously puts the images out of their mind, the effects continue to plague their everyday life.

The majority of the leaders recognize this and want to improve the communities’ situations.  However, the problem is more difficult than people realize.  One of the challenges leaders face is that people, sometimes individuals and sometimes businesses, continue to dump, regardless of the amount of education they are fed.  Leaders receive frustration from the community because of the dumping their own neighbors are producing.

Another challenge is dumping rarely occurs in broad daylight. Also, the dump sites are usually areas that are somewhat remote or within an alleyway.  Therefore, witnesses are scarce, and it is difficult to collect evidence. In today’s world of technology, surveillance seems to be everywhere, however the traditional surveillance tools are not designed to be used for illegal dumping.

In order to solve the illegal dumping problem of most communities, community leaders need to create an Illegal Dumping Enforcement Program.  It is also essential to know what tools to use.  Because like stated earlier, traditional surveillance does not work.  Because dumpsites are in remote areas, electricity and internet are not possible or extremely expensive to install.  Most traditional surveillance requires both.

Fortunately, there is an Illegal Dumping Enforcement Camera designed especially for illegal dumping problems. They are self-contained and can be easily moved around to control and put a stop to the illegal dumping that is occurring in the community.  They are designed to capture prosecutable evidence in remote areas where there is no electricity or internet. Prosecutable evidence is very important.  Most surveillance systems cannot produce the evidence needed to prosecute in court.

Protecting Park Assets

Protecting Park Assets

During the park closures back in 2020, we all learned that parks are essential to the health and wellbeing of the community, and the assets of a park provided need to be protected.

Unfortunately, there have been many incidents of vandalism, metal theft, and graffiti at are beloved parks.  To our greatest surprise are the occurrences within our historic parks and natural beauties.  It is hard to understand the person who would commit such a hideous crime.  Whether it’s youthful ignorance or anger directed at society, it is a very sad crime that affects our entire nation.

The vandalism that occurs at the local park is also sad.  Children come to play on the swing set or the slide, only to find it is not available due to vandalism.  Youth feel depression and unsafe when they discover their skate park has been defaced with graffiti.  And the football game will not happen because some culprit stole the wiring out of the lights.

All these tragic events occur very often.

Protecting Park property is more than surveillance.  Surveillance has its benefits, but it does not deter. Therefore, the park equipment such as field lights, bathrooms, playground equipment, and pavilions are destroyed and must be repaired or replaced.

This is very heartbreaking to the park visitors but also to the park rangers and recreation supervisors.  Because the park is created by their hard work and dedication, the destruction of the park is a blow to their heart.

Protecting Park resources are easier than you may believe.  There is a Park Vandalism Camera, specifically designed to stop vandals and other nuisance crime perpetrators before they strike.

Illegal Dumping Solution

Illegal Dumping Solution

Illegal Dumping is a problem throughout the world, and every community is looking for solutions. It is safe to bet, that all solutions do not look the same and do not have an equal return.

It is excellent that communities are looking for ways to stop the pollution and disease that are associated with illegal dump sites. But unfortunately, the solution is not so easy. Dump sites move around.  Dump sites are usually in remote areas.  And let us say again, dump sites move around.

Therefore, installing electricity and internet cables are not wise or efficient, making surveillance difficult if not downright impossible. Besides the fact that traditional surveillance does not have the best resolution for prosecutable images, it requires electricity and internet connection to work.  There are a few “Solar Powered” surveillance systems out there, however the battery does not last long and must be changed frequently, the surveillance does not produce prosecutable images, and they are not vandal proof.

Fortunately, there are Illegal Dumping Enforcement Cameras, that are specifically designed to solve these problems.  They are designed to capture images and license plates even in complete darkness.  They are completely self-contained needing no electricity or wiring.  The best part is they are portable, making it easy to move where the problem moves.

However, even with Illegal Dumping Enforcement Cameras, a community needs to implement an Illegal Dumping Enforcement Program. An Illegal Dumping Enforcement Program involves multiple departments within the community.

A successful Illegal Dumping Enforcement Program should include the following elements:

  • Education: Educate the community through social media, community engagements, and through the schools.
  • Legislation: Stiff fines need to be adopted especially for commercial companies that illegally dump.
  •  Staff Resources: To be successful, there needs to be dedicated staff to ensure the program is implemented and stays on track.
  • Tools: Not all tools can do the job. You should not use a screwdriver when a hammer is needed.  Therefore, the right tools, Illegal Dumping Enforcement Cameras, designed especially to capture prosecutable images in complete darkness in remote areas are needed.
  • Enforcement: Enforcement is another key factor. Enforcement is needed to deter further illegal dumping activity.

Protect Your Park from Vandalism

Protect Your Park from Vandalism

Parks are essential to the community and should be protected. The harsh reality is protecting the park from vandalism and graffiti is a daunting task. Unfortunately, it is estimated $12 billion is being relegated to the clean up of graffiti in the United States alone. Cleaning up graffiti is immensely expensive. The unbridled practice of graffiti and vandalism is crippling our government’s ability to maintain a high standard of life for American citizens. Vandalism, even in the form of graffiti, is ultimately governmental revenue being thrown in the trash. Vandalism is nothing more than a money pit.

It is difficult to apprehend vandals and graffiti “artists,” since anyone with a can of spray paint or mischievous thought can become one. Although graffiti artists and vandals are stereotyped as urban gangsters, the graffiti artist and vandal demographic are quite diverse. This makes apprehending vandals no easy task, they could be anyone. In combating graffiti and vandalism, it is essential to obtain the identity of the culprit.

The most effective way in which to identify graffiti artists and vandals is to set up cameras in crime hot spot locations. Unfortunately, most hot spots are in secluded areas where lighting and electricity are not available within the park, and it would be costly to install. Also, most cameras sold on the market cannot provide prosecutable images.

Fortunately, there are Park Vandalism Cameras that are specially designed to stop graffiti and vandalism. These Parks Vandalism Cameras are self-contained and portable, not needing lighting or electricity. The also provide unapparelled image resolution, allowing security to identify small tattoos at a great distance. Since graffiti and vandalism often occur in secluded areas or at night when there are less people around to witness the criminal activity, setting up Park Vandalism Cameras to keep constant watch over vulnerable property is the only way to prevent or at least punish the crime.
