RECOMMENDATION
Authorize the purchase of Courthouse security cameras from Dynamark Security Centers.
BACKGROUND
The Nueces County Courthouse currently has a video surveillance system containing 30 analog video cameras, a micro-computer based digital video recorder (DVR) host and three on-premise monitoring locations. There is a need to expand and update the present system in order to increase the safety and security of the courthouse.  A new system will:
1. Replace the DVR with a scalable network video recorder (NVR) that is capable of viewing and recording existing analog video cameras along with newer IP based cameras. The new system will allow to expandable as new cameras are added in the future.
2. Instalation of additional cameras to the following locations:
a. Entry ways on the first floor of the courthouse including both the south entry and the north entry, along with the area just adjunction to these entries.
b. The entry on 2nd floor west side, along with the area between the courthouse and sheriff office.
c. The areas outside of the other three (3) courthouse entries on 2nd floor need to be covered.
3. The system will be made available to the Emergency Manager on 5th floor of the courthouse.

DISCUSSION
At present we have 30 cameras that are used to monitor and record activities in the interior of the Nueces County Courthouse. Three companies were requested to provide quotes for equipment to enhance the security system at the Courthouse. Only one company responded. 

Dynamark quote includes mounting cameras outside of the courthouse entries ways and will connect the exiting cameras into a NVR video recorder with additional storage.

Purchase in the amount of $37,690.00 is to be paid 100% from Fiscal Year 2012 Homeland Security Grant.
