UK police station uses digital television for disaster planning

The police headquarters in Lincolnshire, UK, has upgraded its TV studio for crisis planning in the event of terrorist attacks or other catastrophic events.

Using a Broadcast Pix Slate 1000 digital production switcher, the studio is being used to produce video simulations of anti-terrorism exercises and the resulting media coverage that would be generated from those events.

The police headquarters also holds the region’s National Press Officers course, a media training program for police staff. Officers with little or no TV experience are given a two-day course. A broadcast television presenter instructs the officers and conducts interviews during the two-day period. The Broadcast Pix equipment provides an environment that closely mimics a genuine broadcast situation.

The territory patrolled by the Lincolnshire Police Force represents one of the largest police force areas in England and Wales.
