The Superintendent of Police (SP) of district of Junagadh in India was looking for a video surveillance solution for the city for two primary reasons, one is to keep a watch on terrorist and antisocial activities in the city and the second is to assist the police departments as a proactive tool to detect and deter criminal elements.
The first phase of the project was implemented to help monitor all major entry and exit points as well as other critical areas of the city of Junagadh. The solution consisted of Axis network cameras for their high-quality images and ease of installation. These were installed at eight different locations spread all over the city of Junagadh. The solution also included the implementation of a wireless monitoring and storage facility at the Superintendent of Police headquarters in Junagadh.
Axis surveillance solution deployed across the city of Junagadh has helped the law enforcement authorities to monitor remote locations, including the city entry/exit points and bypass roads, directly from the Superintendent of Police headquarters. The solution helps to monitor strategic places such as a dam and places of religious importance which are potential terrorist targets. Junagadh Police Department's efforts to use technology integration was recognized by the Director General of Police of State of Gujarat and further fund allocation has been sanctioned to be utilized in further upgrades of this initiative.
