Inaccurate or incomplete information can slow down and hinder public safety efforts. Further challenges can come when data sources are siloed in disparate solutions and between different agencies, such as law enforcement, public transit agencies and other organizations.
A real time response system can give a holistic view of safety and security in public transport operations at any given moment. The system fosters interagency collaboration, enhances situational awareness and helps improve decision-making by identifying threats through the integration of multiple technologies. Large amounts of data are integrated from multiple sources—such as computer-aided dispatch, video sensors, record management systems and third-party databases—and compiled into a consolidated, accurate and real-time view of the public transit network and beyond.
