Councils own and maintain vast networks of CCTV for Public Safety. This may include the retrieval of incidence footage, analysis of foot traffic, loitering, or working with the local police to capture vandals and other criminals. CCTV and Public Safety solutions help make residents feel safe to be out at night, and thus makes for a safe and happy town.
Each Council has its own unique set of challenges and opportunities. The Federal Government has released a series of funding grants, which local Councils can apply for. These include Safer Communities, and Smart Cities and Suburbs funding. The clear majority of the successful applicants are working with technology companies to design and build safer, environmentally focused, technological and more inclusive cities. From smart LED lights and CCTV surveillance, through to smart parking, public Wi-Fi, environmental sensors and smart city dashboards.
AFN Solutions has worked with many Councils to apply for funding grants, and has been successful in securing those projects.
