On the grounds of the Commissioner’s office in Vepery, Greater Chennai Police Commissioner Shankar Jiwal on Friday officially opened an integrated command and control center (ICCC) as part of the Chennai Safe City Project (CSCP).
In accordance with the plans, 1,750 important locations inside the Greater Chennai Police (GCP) boundaries will have a total of 5,250 CCTV cameras installed, and ICCC will monitor the live feeds from all of these cameras.
The first phase of the project would involve viewing the footage from 4,008 CCTV cameras placed at 1,336 different sites at the ICCC. Furthermore, the Commissioner’s office in Vepery has continuous access to the CCTV camera feeds. Personnel at the ICCC will keep an eye on this.
The Commissioner claimed that a cutting-edge software system powered by artificial intelligence had been installed in the network with several analytics features mixed with alarms to enable quick response to a crime. This technology makes video analytics on crimes including kidnapping, vandalism, vehicle theft, harassment of women, and harassment of women.
According to the Commissioner, the AI-based software will aid in protecting the safety of women because the camera feeds will analyze the scenario using AI software, and the programme will alert the ICCC to take the necessary action even in the case of SOS motions made on the camera.
The video feeds will be replicated and stored in the data recovery center and data center, respectively. The ICCC will be responsible for live stream monitoring, and the same will be made available in the offices of the 12 Deputy Commissioners of Police and the six Joint Commissioners of Police.
