Equine security operations transformed in Canada


Genetec, a technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, has announced Toronto’s Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) has selected its platform, Security Center, for use across 66,000 acres of track in Toronto and Campbellville.

Security Center is an open-architecture platform with IP-based video surveillance, access control, automatic licence plate recognition (ALPR), communications, and analytics.
“Genetec Security Center ticked all the boxes when it came to innovation, future growth, and everything we envisioned for our security operations,” said Tina Soobramanie, Integrated network and security specialist at WEG.
Co-operating with regulators
Today, WEG says its security team uses a surveillance operations center (SOC) powered by Genetec Security Center.
They manage over 800 cameras across sites as well as existing access control and intrusion detection systems within the unified security platform.
WEG says the new SOC also helps with the legalese of information and evidence requests from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).
WEG says it expects to evolve the platform to support a Champions off-track betting location and additional cameras.
