3 Aug 2016

Smart, connected solution enable real-time tracking of crimes, better governance and civic administration

Mission Kolhapur, known as a city of palaces and gardens, is a historic Maratha city. Located close to Mumbai, it is rapidly becoming a major tourist attraction. The need to address various concerns of crime management, traffic control and planning, better governance and efficient disaster management was recognized early by the Kolhapur Municipal Corporation. The requirement of an efficient and integrated security surveillance system was the need of the hour. This would enable the Kolhapur Police and the civic authorities to reduce the possibilities of a security threat and ensure better safety across the city.

Solution A smart solution was provided that could observe all entry/exit points, traffic junctions and important tourist attractions around the clock. The plan was to transform Kolhapur into a safe city project and ensure quicker response times and faster access to evidence in case of law violations. In Kolhapur (area of 66.82 km), an installation at 65 locations was made with 165 network cameras. These include 116 fixed cameras, 17 PTZ cameras and 32 panoramic cameras.

Result The solution has been successful in ensuring the safety and security of Kolhapur, making it into a smart, connected city. It has helped law enforcement authorities to better manage traffic, for real-time tracking of crimes and has enabled better governance and civic administration. The Axis surveillance solution has also been able to help the police monitor festivals and man VIP movement in the city and build a security net for its citizens. Petty incidents like traffic violations and theft will not pose a serious challenge to the authorities as they can always refer to video footage.
