669 crimes were revealed in Tatarstan in 2017 through security cameras.
(KZN.RU, April 4). A joint meeting of the Security Council of the RT, the Coordination Meeting on Ensuring the Rule of Law in the RT and the Anti-Terrorist Commission in the RT was held today in the Kazan Kremlin in video conferencing mode, chaired by Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the RT. One of the topics of the meeting was the further development of the hardware and software system (HSS) “Safe City” in the municipal districts and urban districts of the republic.
Mintimer Shaimiev, the State Councilor of the RT, Farid Mukhametshin, the chairman of the State Council of the RT, Aleksey Pesoshin, the prime minister of the RT, Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, and other heads of municipalities, heads of ministries, departments and profile organizations took part in the work.
Rustam Minnikhanov noted that ensuring the security of citizens is the most important task for the government bodies. The development of modern society is impossible without the widespread introduction of information technologies in all spheres of life, including security, believes the President. The hardware and software system “Safe City” is one of such examples.
The head of the republic positively evaluated the effectiveness of the video surveillance system and noted that it allows to significantly improve the rates of crime detection. So, in 2017 only, it was possible to disclose 669 crime and to reveal 5476 administrative offenses with the help of cameras.
Rustam Nigmatullin, the first deputy prime minister of the RT, said that 47 out of 52 systems, included in the list of Unified Requirements for the technical parameters of segments of the “Safe City”, have been created and implemented in the republic. He proposed to develop the “Safe City” complex and to consider the Public Safety Answering Point as situational centers at the municipal level, which have the ability to monitor the current situation in the region around the clock, according to data received from designated systems.
“It is important that this will be a situational center of the district, which can promptly provide information to the services involved, as well as to the district leadership”, noted the reporter.
Separately, Rustam Nigmatullin mentioned integrable systems. Thus, the system for ensuring the call of emergency operational services at a single number “112” operates throughout the territory of Tatarstan. Annually about 2 million calls are received, while more than 30% of calls require a complex response from several services. The interface with the state automated information system “ERA-GLONASS”, which terminals are now equipped with all new vehicles, have been provided. Employees of the Service 112 receive calls from this system on a daily basis. The system is taken as a basis as an integrating platform of the “Safe City” in order to save financial resources. All the cooperating emergency operational services and the PSAPs of the districts are equipped with Sistem-112 workplaces. There are over 500 of them throughout the country.
A lot of work has been done on the video surveillance system in conjunction with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Emergency Measures, municipal authorities and PAO “Tattelecom”. Today 17353 video cameras are installed and are functioning, 2571 of them are in places of mass stay of people, and 14778 video cameras are on the territory of apartment buildings. “In 2018, we plan to make it possible to view the image from all the cameras installed in places of mass stay and in the territories of apartment buildings”, said Rustam Nigmatullin.
“We have built a powerful system, and it needs to be adapted. In the near future, all software products need to be generalized so that the system works for the tasks that the republic and our law enforcement agencies need. Many crimes can be solved precisely thanks to the video surveillance system. In addition, issues are being resolved to ensure security in yards and neighborhoods”, concluded Rustam Minnikhanov and suggested sharing the experience of the municipalities and leaders in the development of the system “Safe City”.
