Genetec Security Center Unifies Operations For City Of Toronto’s New Forensic Services And Coroner’s Complex

Genetec ™, a global leader in unified IP security solutions and ranked number-one * in video management software (VMS), today announced that Security Center—its unified IP security platform —was recently deployed as part of a highly sophisticated security implementation for the brand new City of Toronto Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex (FSCC). The new 49,000 square meter state-of-the-art facility built by Carillion Canada is set to revolutionize forensics in Canada, and enable them to support increasingly complicated investigations.
