Public Safety and Safe Cities
Create Safer Cities with Complete Situational Awareness
A violent crime occurs once every 26 seconds in the United States per the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting “Crime Clock”. As such, reducing crime in metropolitan and suburban
areas is arguably the highest priority for municipalities and law enforcement. When it comes to protecting cities and enhancing public safety, audio solutions are essential. This is particularly true when it comes to delivering critical information to first responders. Sound is often one of the earliest indicators to a first responder that something is wrong.
Adding audio to a surveillance solution is the first step in deploying smart city security. One and two-way audio solutions allow for proactive and real-time monitoring. Additionally, sound detectors help security and law enforcement personnel identify acoustic events commonly associated with crimes, alerting first responders prior to a precarious situation reaching its full potential.

Chicago Police Department
The city of Chicago, Illinois has a residential population over 2.7 million, while the Chicago Police Department (Chicago PD) has a total of 12,244 sworn officers. With the city’s dense population and high crime rate, there’s always the possibility that the department could see an influx of suspects disproportionate to the number of officers on hand. To proactively prepare for operational challenges like this, the police department moved to upgrade its overall security system as well as its recording equipment for the interrogation rooms.
