There is no place more complex and challenging to maintain safety and security than the urban environment.
The list of risks run long, and ranges from crime and terrorist threats to traffic management and natural disasters. Controlling and managing incidents in all of these areas is paramount to a smooth running city. That’s why cities have massive infrastructures that include many agencies, and even more systems and sensors.
Security and safety are two crucial factors and direct influencers on the quality of living within the city and its surroundings. Making a city safer and more secure directly contributes to its ‘smartness’ and ability to have its agencies efficiently execute their responsibilities to secure the metropolitan area and enhance public safety.
