This paper will explore the guidelines for safecity in the Indian context, range of issues experienced during implementations and integrated solutions for smart and safecity. This includes the role of Command and Control System, Emergency Response Systems and mobile solutions, Crime Analytics, integration with Enterprise wide IT infrastructure and its effectiveness in Smart and Safecity domain.
Command Control Systems, emergency systems and Mobile solutions are indigenously developed, sophisticated technologies which provide better response both at strategic and tactical levels. Crime analytics integrated with these systems and Enterprise wide solution with data fusion and advanced search capabilities gives security agencies the ability to perform time series analysis of the crime and related incidences, detect patterns and deviations if any from the data that would have been difficult to detect for actionable intelligence.
Mobile solutions enables both police agencies and citizens to stay connected with police control rooms and access the analyzed information from Police control rooms / Smart and Safecity fusion centers. Since majority of the mobile devices are now connected through GPRS / internet connectivity both the field response teams from the incident place as well as citizens are now able to share real-time situation to the police control rooms.
The presentation will conclude by highlighting an Enterprise wide solution for security process, automation through Standard Operating procedures, fastest way to create actionable intelligence by means of Standard hidden information from disparate databases across the organization and thus enabling effective crisis management through preventative measures as well as to provide better and effective response capabilities.
