The goal for the modern city is to create a unified response plan to major emergency situations. Cities need to have all key stakeholders (police, fire/EMS, city government, Homeland Security, transit, utilities) at the same table if they want to provide an effective security or safety response to any situation affecting their citizens. Increasingly, cities are inclined to make federated security technology, equipment and training investments, such that resources can be shared across agencies and departments. By bringing together key partners in urban security (city management and law enforcement, and now, transit security administration), the Secured Cities conference is facilitating the dialogue necessary for a city to create a holistic emergency safety or security plan.
Some of the topics that have been discussed in past conferences in Atlanta and Baltimore include:
• Funding for city camera projects
• Planning a municipal video security strategy
• Creating partnerships with local business
• Privacy issues and rights
• Gaining public support
• What effects camera systems have on crime
• Effective monitoring and use of video
• IT department support for video systems
• Technical systems design and implementation
• Strategies for protecting transportation infrastructure
