Lima, Peru, 2013/04/25 - Lima is the capital and largest city of Peru, forming its economic, political, and cultural center - AxxonSoft.com.
This January, the Lima city government decided to initiate a Safe City video surveillance project. The choice of software went to Axxon Next, an open platform for smart video surveillance from AxxonSoft. The project is designed to reduce the city's crime rate and aid in police investigation.
The Puerto Libre district, Lima's largest, was chosen to begin the project. Strategic points in the district are now covered by 42 IP surveillance cameras for public safety, with many more to be added. Information from all cameras is sent to the central monitoring hub, where the entire system is managed. Completion of the project is slated for June 2013.
According to Rafael Santos, the mayor of Lima, the Safe City project in Pueblo Libre has already caused a 40% drop in crime, with further improvements to come. The most important thing is that all of the city's safety services work together.
