A Smart Crime-Curbing System

A Smart Crime-Curbing System

Brief Description:

Build a connected, real-time system to help curb crimes in urban areas, integrate real-time report and response with event detection of smart cameras, and standardize procedures for emergency response. Involve city, police, public safety officials, application developers, electrical power board, enterprise center, company lab, and citizens.

Major Requirements:

• Assemble project team
• Decide on the project scope and high-level requirements
• Develop the system architecture; gain support from city and buy-in from the community partners
• Simulate project scenario to determine feasibility
• Build an application development team, understand existing communication infrastructure, identify hardware and software requirements and constraints, identify law enforcement district for development of a pilot and testing program
• Implement the project and run pilot for two months

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):

• Average response time of an incident
• Average time to handle crime report
• Average actual occurrence of crimes
• Crime reduction in designated areas of the city (by 10%)

Measurement Methods:
• Measurement of response time in seconds over 3-6 month period, compared to baseline
• Measurement of crime occurrence over past years

Project Impact:

• Reduction of reported crime response time
• Reduction in crime occurrence
• Improvement in public safety and therefore quality of living
• Community acceptance and adoption of smart technologies to improve public safety, and transfer the effective model to other cities
