“Potentially the largest Safe City CCTV network in the world”
To support this new Safe City security service for the UK Viseum has forged key relationships with many of its local authorities, and has trained a large number of security companies including some of the biggest names in the UK security and telecommunications industries.
One of the world’s largest CCTV and security monitoring and response services commented: “Results from these cameras are amazing. For a high crime area, where we would typically have used many cameras, equipment and personnel to secure an area, and where the authorities would have tried many crime reduction initiatives over several years, just one of these surveillance cameras working by itself literally transforms the lives of those living and working in the community.” They add: “These cameras are proving to have an immediate impact and are giving hope creating a brighter outlook for many communities. We are looking forward to being involved in many more of these Community Safety CCTV schemes already in the pipeline.”
This new Safe City initiative needed the arrival of broadband Internet access to make it commercially viable, and the UK’s main telecommunications providers have already identified this to be just what communities need. “This will become the world’s largest CCTV network, and we could immediately see this potential,” commented one of the UK’s largest multimedia telecoms companies.
