Dean Drako talks with WFLA about Sarasota jail smuggling scheme


Eagle Eye Networks founder and CEO Dean Drako talked to WFLA investigative reporter Walt Buteau about the use of video surveillance and how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can benefit video surveillance monitoring after an inmate at a Sarasota County Jail was caught on video surveillance smuggling contraband into the jail.

According to the WFLA report, the smuggling scheme went on for days before it was noticed. Drako explained that AI-powered video analytics can help assure camera tampering is caught immediately.

SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) — The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office will not comment on how surveillance video was monitored during an inmate smuggling scheme that occurred in daylight hours on multiple days.

No one noticed from outside the jail on busy Ringling Boulevard, even though investigators said a brightly colored line made out of several jail-issued headphone chords was strung from a crack in a window on at least four different dates in October.
