PSIM in the city

August 2012 Integrated Solutions

CNL Software partnered with CIBER to provide the Atlanta Police Department with an integrated suite of emergency dispatch applications that allow call takers and dispatchers to manage incident information more efficiently.

Ensuring the safety and security of citizens and visitors is key to the success and progress of any city. This is especially true for Atlanta. The City covers 8376 square miles, is home to over 5 million people in the metropolitan area, hosts over 35 million visitors per year and is protected by 1639 police officers.

Over the years, Atlanta has become more reliant on the use of visual intelligence to help identify and resolve safety and security incidents faster and more precisely. The city had invested in a number of surveillance systems to provide law enforcement and security professionals with visual intelligence through the eye of a camera, well before first responders had arrived.

The next step for the city is to expand and leverage the fully functioning Video Integration Centre (VIC) powered by IPSecurityCenter to bring together disparate, legacy video systems and additionally, to use the large number of private cameras located in the city, from sources ranging from the Publix supermarket in Buckhead to the Georgia State University.

“The city required that the solution chosen to protect its citizens, commerce and infrastructure was a tried and trusted technology, proven within the safe city framework”, explains Matthew Kushner, president, CNL Americas. “IPSecurityCenter was selected not only because it has been deployed in cities, including Washington DC and Manchester in the UK, but also because it has a proven track record in providing the resilience and scalability needed to connect, manage and distribute the huge amount of data generated by the City.”

As with any enterprise level system, there is a constant need to increase the system, both in terms of the number of users, geographic coverage and new functionality. IPSecurityCenter offers Atlanta an easy migration path to incorporate new technologies such as gunshot detection systems, tracking systems and smart video such as LPR and analytics. The integration capability that IPSecurityCenter offers will enable the city to reach all new technologies and legacy systems, both public and private, that are required to realise its vision for public-private partnerships in the foreseeable future.
