Surveillance systems in the United Kingdom are prominent, and the number of installed cameras is estimated to be around 1.8 million. It is common for a single person to watch multiple live video feeds when conducting active surveillance, and past research has shown that a person’s effectiveness at successfully identifying an event of interest diminishes the more monitors they must observe. We propose using computer vision techniques to produce a system that can accurately identify scenes of violent behaviour. In this paper we outline three measures of motion trajectory that when combined produce a response map that highlights regions within frames that contain behaviour typical of violence based on local information. Our proposed method demonstrates state-of-the-art classification ability when given the task of distinguishing between violent and non-violent behaviour across a wide variety of violent data, including real-world surveillance footage obtained from local police organisations.
