DOVER, N.H. (AP) - Strafford County Commissioners got a sneak peek at the southeast New Hampshire county’s recently upgraded dispatch center that now offers enhanced features to better assist in a “worst case scenario” incident.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1SBFRKj ) the developments include cameras that can apply facial recognition software, track movement and be sent directly to an officer’s smartphone.

Officials say the 56 cameras covering the county complex can detect a person’s presence once they come into view and follow them all the way to the courthouse door.

Skip Christenbury, Strafford County’s chief of technology, says the dispatch center is probably the most advanced in the state.

County Administrator Ray Bower says the upgrades were paid for by a capital contribution from the towns that will use the facility’s services.
