Riot Police Tactics – Create long-term deterrent against city rioting


Viseum Central Intelligent Video Management Software (Viseum CiVMS) monitors a city’s potential riot areas for crowd gathering. Using social media chatter, the locations of possible riots can be automatically found. People who join a crowd can be automatically recorded, indexed and reported. When the number of people in a crowd reaches levels of risk, Viseum’s Rapid Deploy CCTV can be taken to potential riot locations. This automatically collects the identification of people committing public disorder. Creating the best deterrent to control crowds rioting.

Riot Organisers

Viseum’s Riot Police Product Solution saves countries many millions. It does this by automatically deterring and investigating each riot emergency. It effectively stops many potential riots. Viseum delivers the only Product Solution for riot police to have complete situational awareness. Close-up video evidence of riot organisers and perpetrators of public disorder.

Many thousands of people attend political rallies. Rioting is not always expected. Sometimes, crowds will rapidly meet to protest. This often turns into problems. A crowd behaviour algorithm is used. Situational awareness information is collected. Information about where and how fast crowds are growing. This is sent to Command Control. Identities of known repeat offenders are sent automatically. Senior riot police officers will strategise for riot police tactics.

Riot police tactics using CCTV for deterrent

Firstly, the Malaysian language was added to the Viseum CiVMS Video Management System. The Viseum CiVMS video archiving system was customised to help the riot police bookmark certain events. Including faces and people in the crowd for each riot police operation. A design for unbreakable wireless communications was also required. Riot police in their command control could not lose valuable evidence and information.
