Safe City: Introducing a Flawless Model and Implementation Guidelines to Reduce Crime Rate and Response Time
Rami Elsayed and Abdallah Tubaishat
The safe city approach is implemented worldwide and brought up exceptional results in reducing crimes and securing cities. In an effort of providing a secure environment for the residence of a certain city, the law enforcement authorities leave no clear method to achieve that. Various technologies can be used to enhance the performance of certain devices providing a better environment. Existing models that are implemented throughout the world are studied and compared, and then deliberated the best practices in each implantation scenario. The shortcomings experienced in those cases have been minimized, then a flawless model is introduced. The benefits of our model are mainly to reduce the rate of crimes and to decrease the response time of handling crime incidents. The model consists of four main aspects: monitoring, communication, mobility and command and control center. In addition to that, implementing safe city model with all its potential advantages rises some concerns such as citizens’ privacy. For that reason, certain guidelines are introduced to assure best implementation of the project. Finally, future recommendations are suggested in what relate to introducing patterns of previous crimes committed which will rise a flag if the similar actions prior to the crime happened.
