RECOMMENDATION
Authorize the purchase of security camera systems from Dynamark Security Centers for the Tax Assessor-Collector's Office.
BACKGROUND
The Nueces County Tax Assessor-Collector's Office currently has a video surveillance system containing 32 analog video cameras, a micro-computer based digital video recorder (DVR) host for only the Motor Vehicle Registration department. There is a need to update the present system and install new surveillance systems in the Property Tax Department, Port Aransas substation and Bishop substation. The purpose of these new video surveillance systems is to ensure safety of the employees and the security of the offices. A new system will: 1. Replace the existing DVR with a scalable network video recorder (NVR) that is capable of viewing and recording activities in the Motor Vehicle Registration Department. Replace existing analog cameras with 32 new high definition surveillance cameras. 2. Installation of a new network video recorder surveillance system with 21 high definition cameras in the Property Tax Department. 3. Installation of a new network video recorder surveillance system with 7 high definition cameras in the Bishop substation office. 4. Installation of a new network video recorder surveillance system with 4 high definition cameras in the Port Aransas substation office.
DISCUSSION
At present there are 32 analog cameras that are used to monitor and record activities in the Motor Vehicle Department of the Tax Assessor-Collector's Office. Our office would like to update the existing surveillance system and extend the camera surveillance capabilities to three other locations. Four companies were requested to provide quotes for equipment to enhance the current camera surveillance system and install three new camera surveillance systems. Three companies responded. Dynamark quote provides the requested services for the needed upgrade to existing surveillance camera system and install three new surveillance camera systems. Purchase in the amount of $26,097.00 is to be paid from Capital Outlay fund.
