Since the Quality Inn building is scheduled for demolition this summer, the City must relocate its equipment in order to maintain the existing system. Staff have received a proposal from our security camera contractor, Hitachi Vantara, to replace and relocate this equipment and develop a new signal path to the UMPD security operations center (SOC). This proposal is estimated to cost $73,931.83.

In the Old Town, Calvert Hills and Baltimore Avenue there are 20 Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) cameras and 7 license plate readers that are monitored by UMPD at an annual cost to the City of approximately $136,000. These specific cameras transmit video data to UMPD through a network of radio signal transmitters and fiber connections which transmit to and relay from equipment mounted on the roof top of the former Quality Inn building at Baltimore Avenue and Calvert Road.
