A pioneering technology company that can assist police by quickly scanning hours of CCTV footage to identify critical leads for criminal investigations, has been awarded the sought-after Police Preferred Specification of Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.
SeeQuestor improves the costly and time-consuming process of reviewing footage and can deliver results up to 100 times faster than conventional methods before converting footage into a playable format.
London-based SeeQuestor recently won the 2017 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Technical Innovation for its work in the video forensics market. SeeQuestor was praised for consistently presenting ‘the best in industry applications to set itself apart as a technology innovator and partner in the digital law enforcement industry’. Earlier this year, the company won the 12th annual ADS Security Innovation Award.
The company gained its SBD accreditation for its CCTV Video Intelligent Analytics System at a panel of industry experts.
Based on cutting-edge British research, the platform has been designed in close consultation with leading British police teams who review video data 24/7. The system is already being used in real cases by law enforcement agencies on three continents to view thousands of hours of CCTV data every day.
Guy Ferguson, Chief Executive Officer, SBD, said: “We are delighted to have SeeQuestor on board as one of our member companies. They have ground-breaking technology which puts them at the forefront of their specialist field. By providing a fast analysis of CCTV, they can ease the pressure on police resources so that more highly skilled detectives can be deployed on other pressing specialist enquiries.”
Tristram Riley-Smith, Chairman of SeeQuestor, said: “SeeQuestor was created to answer a critical need of law enforcement agencies: to improve the costly and time-consuming process of reviewing video footage. We deliver radically faster video intelligence. We will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible through the use of machine learning to develop new analytical tools.”
SBD works closely with UK Police Forces and a wide range of other organisations, including National and Local Government, British and European Standards authorities, the construction industry, trade associations and manufacturers to achieve sustainable reductions in crime through design and other approaches, to enable people to live in a safer society.
It offers guidance in sectors including housing, commercial, retail, mixed use, transport, health, education, leisure and others and has nearly 30 years’ experience and knowledge of promoting environmental and physical security. It has continued to adapt its advice to keep pace with changing patterns of criminal behaviour.
SBD is the only way for security products to achieve Police Preferred Specification status in the UK.
SeeQuestor is the complete solution for post-event analysis of video for law enforcement and security.

The system can deliver results up to 100 times quicker than conventional methods, and is being used in real cases by law enforcement agencies on three continents to view hundreds of hours of CCTV data every day.
