Municipal and Law Enforcement
Projects

The following projects exemplify the types of services that Metropolitan Technologies typically provides:

Project Title:
Atlantic Highlands Marina and Sea Streak Ferry
Client:
Consulting Services:
Security System

MT was chosen to design a security system for the Marina working with the Monmouth County Sheriff's Department. We provided drawings and specifications for the CCTV systems and all associated infrastructure to support it. The Ferry system here takes commuters to Wall Street from the Atlantic Highlands every day.

As MT was engaged on this project, we quickly identified short comings in the proposed budget. However, even with the lack of funds to do an entire cabled infrastructure, MT designed a wireless system that would be fully redundant and was still able to bring the project in under the proposed budget. This project was a challenge due to budget restraints and the proximity to the Earl Navel Weapons station. As we worked with the various agencies (Department of Homeland Security, Monmouth County Sheriff, Atlantic Highlands PD, NJ State Police, FBI and local OEM), we were able to satisfy all parties involved with a superior design.

Project Title:
Woodbridge Township Data Center Expansion
Client:
Consulting Services:
Data Center

As the Prime Consultant on this project, Metropolitan Technologies assembled and coordinated a team of Engineers and Architects to provide a solution to expand a working data center that handles the Township’s Phone System, records keeping, all Police 911 communications, and hosts the School District’s servers. Woodbridge Township is New Jersey's fifth largest municipality. Metropolitan Technologies designed the infrastructure and also provided Construction Management to meet the logistical challenge of expanding this live 24/7 mission-critical facility in a technology-rich environment. The main challenge of this project was the fact that it was a live and operating Data Center & had to maintain 24/7 operations without ever failing. There were many potential challenges that could have stopped the Township in its tracks. One of those was changing out an old UPS for a newer one with 4 times the capacity of the old one.

Project Title:
Philadelphia Police Department - Security Surveillance Command Center
Client:
Consulting Services:
Command Center

MT was tasked to design a Command Center for this highly visible security project. This Command Center consisted of Video Walls and various systems integration for 21 positions. It included live video feeds from PENNDOT (over 1,000 camera’s) as well as 450 new cameras put up throughout the city for security. The network created by MT in the city included Fiber Optic Cable as well as wireless technologies (Point to Point & Mesh). It was designed to aid in criminal investigations with forensic evidence as well as assist any ongoing investigations and operations with the Police Department. The challenge of this project was to take an old forensics lab and turn it into a state of the art Command Center that would serve the city well into the future. This was a 14 million dollar security project. This project had previously been in the design process by another firm and it took that firm over 16 months to design. The City brought MT in and asked if we could re-design it. MT did so in 6 weeks.

Project Title:
Gloucester County Justice Complex Technology Commissioning Project
Client:
Consulting Services:
Security System

MT was tasked to commission all the systems in the New Justice Complex. MT provided all the expertise to commission the Security systems, AudioVisual Systems, IT Infrastructure and Network Systems. MT uses a specific methodology to run these systems through performance testing. These tests are part of the commissioning process and proved “bench marking” that will determine if the system can perform as designed. The process started when MT reviewed all the design information including written specifications and drawings. MT then carefully laid out the plan for the specific testing criteria that would determine the validity of those installed systems.
