Steria Wins Two Contracts from Uttar Pradesh Police in India to Improve the Emergency Response and Security Surveillance System in the Cities of Allahabad and Ghaziabad
Jun 25 14
Steria has won two contracts from the Uttar Pradesh police in India, to improve the emergency response and security surveillance system in the cities of Allahabad and Ghaziabad. Steria will provide a variety of support, integration and IT services that will enable the police to make faster and smarter decisions on how it uses resources to respond to emergencies. Building from Steria's vast experience on homeland security projects, the contract with the cities of Allahabad and Ghaziabad will enable the two cities' police departments to improve the speed and efficiency of their Emergency Response (Command and Control) and Surveillance Systems. These systems are responsible for monitoring sensitive locations in the city and for addressing distress calls from 6 million citizens of Allahabad - which also hosts the famous Kumbh Mela every 6 years, where over 50 million people visit and take the holy dip in the Ganges River during 55 days - and from 2.5 million citizens in the city of Ghaziabad which, due to its close proximity to the capital city of Delhi, needs to lessen the high crime rate currently prevalent in the city. Under the new contracts, Steria will provide integrated Computer Aided Dispatch platforms that will handle inbound 'Dial-100' citizen distress calls. The GIS-based (Geographical Information System) platform will capture caller information and location coordinates, and dispatch them to the nearest police patrol vehicle for emergency handling. This new functionality will improve efficiency, reducing the time it takes to respond to calls and provide a better view of emergency situations for more efficient resource mobilisation and allocation. Steria will also implement CCTV Surveillance with advanced Video Analytics at 43 sensitive locations across the city of Allahabad. These locations will be monitored round the clock from a modernized control room with the help of an OFC communications backbone. For both contracts, the projects include a systems integration phase, followed by two years of application support. Steria will work on the installation of the application software, the setup of data centre infrastructure, the system's control room, network and connectivity. Steria partnered for the bid with Telecommunications Consultants India Ltd. The solution will provide the police forces with a comprehensive real-time view of events across the cities of Allahabad and Ghaziabad. With this crucial insight, emergency response teams will be able to better assess needs, prioritise and coordinate actions and proactively deploy assets to address, and potentially prevent, multiple, complex incidents within the two cities. The system's unified view of incident data enables faster and smarter decision making with the ability to handle multiple situations simultaneously and reduce emergency response time substantially. It will also enable end-to-end coordination of emergency agencies and connect diverse first responder agencies with shared, inter-operable equipment and protocols.
