Secure a State of Constant Awareness

The twenty-first century is more complex, intricate, and reliant on technology than ever before. A safe community embraces a methodology and infrastructure where all sectors of the community work together collaboratively to safeguard citizens' well-being and property. Sharing information fosters partnerships that enhance safety, manage risk, and increase overall communal engagement. As governments work toward collective integration, their combined resources help anticipate crime and other outcomes before they occur.

Information Sharing Using Modern Capabilities

Advances in technology, such as mobile and GPS-enabled devices, live data sensors, and big data, have created a foundation for governments to develop better services, foster accountability, and increase transparency. A safe community exploits opportunities to better serve the public by providing safety and security personnel with modern capabilities such as multiagency interdepartmental collaboration; shared real-time situational awareness, and access to unbiased authoritative data, as well as community platforms that enhance data analysis, understanding, and application.


Disaster<br />Response

Are you prepared to deal with an environmental or technological disaster?

Keep communities safe by monitoring multiple real-time data feeds. Whether analysing flood information alongside community data to identify at-risk areas or addressing the potential impacts of major storms on critical infrastructure, ArcGIS helps you prepare to respond more intelligently to every type of disaster. As insight is gained, share information instantly with the public or across an organisation to quickly and efficiently deploy resources to impacted areas.

Can your community respond to health threats such as epidemics?

When real-time awareness is buoyed by historical data and crowdsourced input, not only do communities better respond to disease outbreaks, they may also identify trends indicating other emerging threats before they occur. Track the location of vulnerable populations and monitor disease-spreading vectors to make data-driven decisions on how to manage logistics, facilities, and available health services and resources.

There's a healthy dose of apps for any outbreak.

Can you protect your citizens when they're gathered together for a major event?

Safe communities use GIS to secure large gatherings by collecting and sharing real-time information between field personnel, command center staff, and the public. ArcGIS builds on these capabilities by enhancing data collection, integration, analysis, and dissemination. Agencies can now arrange and visualise preoperational plans that may be updated and edited as events unfold. GIS integrated networks provide rapid understanding of content and context that support tactical operations by securely exchanging information across multiple domains simultaneously.

Can you manage civil unrest and execute modern crime control strategies?

Modern policing strategies demand powerful mapping and analysis. Take a smart approach to community safety and crime prevention by incorporating The Science of Where into your tactics. Advanced analytics transform your big data caches into meaningful intelligence that can identify developing trends, highlight recurring hot spot locations, and help deploy critical resources to the right place at the right time. GIS supports officers accessing data and analysis directly from the field, police command staff viewing law enforcement activities holistically and in real-time, and the public receiving the latest updates and bulletins through an understandable platform that is constantly refreshed.

Community Resilience

Can you manage emergencies or an intentional attack?

Whether natural or otherwise, catastrophes test the resilience of any community. When incidents strike, critical information exchange across departmental, municipal, and jurisdictional lines expedites communication to at-risk populations and hastens their evacuation from harm's way. Live situational awareness maps allow command centers to distribute shared information to minimise an emergency's impact and facilitate rapid recovery. Use ArcGIS to track disasters in real-time, locate medical resources, align logistics, coordinate response teams, and automatically publish updated maps that keep the media and public informed.

Border Control

Can you secure your borders and manage refugees and migrants?

A safe community secures its borders, crossing points, ports, and airports at all times. It can manage unpredictable flows of refugees and migrants while ensuring the safety and security of affected populations. Customs and border agencies worldwide leverage geospatial understanding to increase their operational effectiveness, enhance officer safety, detect change, and enable cost-effective resource deployment. With ArcGIS, operators can interrelate foundational information like terrain data with real-time intelligence and threat alerts. Analysing big data helps people better understand information collected from mobile devices and sensors, impacting shared information and risk assessments across government.

Infrastructure Protection

Can you protect physical and cyberinfrastructure?

Communities are built on foundations of critical infrastructure and key resources. These components are fundamental to the delivery of essential services that keep citizens safe and secure. Roads, bridges, the electric grid, water piping, communications, and cyber networks are only a few of the many systems that we maintain to preserve our way of life. Unfortunately, these systems are often extremely vulnerable to natural and man-made threats. Real-time monitoring tools are used to regulate infrastructure and manage facilities, assess network functionality, and more intelligently address issues affecting performance. Analytical and situational awareness tools also provide operational insight that identifies when threats and infrastructure intersect, alerting operators of future problems.
