The Council of Mayors of the San Salvador Metropolitan Area (COAMSS) through its Planning Office (OPAMSS), Tigo, RTI International (RTI) and Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), through its Wireless Reach™ initiative, announced the expansion of the Seguridad Inalámbrica (Wireless Security) project in continued collaboration with the National Civilian Police, Corps of Metropolitan Agents (CAM) of participating municipalities and the U.S. Government through its Agency for International Development (USAID).

Seguridad Inalámbrica uses Qualcomm 3G wireless technology to collect and share crime information, enabling several municipalities in El Salvador to analyze patterns more effectively and improve crime and violence prevention programs. During the systems first phase, Seguridad Inalámbrica enabled real-time monitoring and analysis of crime patterns and made this vital data more accessible to the National Civilian Police (PNC), the Corps of Metropolitan Agents (CAM) and the municipal government in Santa Tecla. Phase one resulted in nearly 700 reports submissions and 192 personnel received training.

In cooperation with OPAMSS, Seguridad Inalámbrica is continuing operations in Santa Tecla and now expanding to additional municipalities in the San Salvador metropolitan area, including Antiguo Cuscatlan, San Martin, San Salvador, Apopa, Ciudad Delgado and Ayutuxtepeque. OPAMSS is providing key communication and coordination between all participating municipalities and agencies. The enhanced system gives the PNC and CAM participants mobile and web-based applications that allow communication between organizations and the ability to map and analyze real-time crime data via 3G technology. In the brief time since the installment of the second phase, more than 100 reports have been submitted and 127 people have been trained.

“It is necessary for municipalities and institutions to undertake joint actions in order to prevent crime,” said Norman Quijano, general coordinator of COAMSS. “This is why we are pleased to announce that the Wireless Security program will be extended to include more areas within the Metropolitan region.”

“Phase one of the project was an excellent experience,” said Óscar Ortiz, coordinator of the COAMSS’ Institutional Commission and mayor of Santa Tecla. “We had the opportunity to learn more about the real benefits of using cutting edge technology to prevent crime which enabled us to create detailed reports quickly and come up with focused policies and strategies according to the needs of each sector.”

Tigo, one of the leading telecommunications providers in El Salvador with more than 2.4 million subscribers, has committed to providing the project with Android-based smartphones powered by Qualcomm SnapdragonTM processors and 3G data services for each municipality for one year. Following feedback from the project’s first phase in Santa Tecla, the smartphones in phase two are equipped with an enhanced, easy-to-use software application and an improved web interface. Participating law enforcement officers are being issued the smartphones with the Seguridad Inalámbrica application, which, alongside built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) capabilities, camera and other features, is used to create detailed incident reports. Officers will have the ability to adjust GPS location to improve precision and attach photos and voice recordings to each report, which is then transmitted immediately via Tigo’s 3G network to the web-based crime database application; reports also can be entered, monitored, reviewed and approved via the web-based application at police bases. In addition, municipal violence prevention observatories have direct access to the database for advanced geospatial analysis of crime patterns.

“At Tigo, one of the pillars of our Corporate Social Responsibility program is Social Welfare. Which is why, for us, it is important to participate in and support crime prevention and public safety programs,” said Nina Muyshondt, marketing director for TIGO.

As part of this effort, Qualcomm’s Wireless Reach initiative is providing funding to RTI International to update the system and expand the project to the additional municipalities. This funding supports project strategy, system design and development, training, implementation and management oversight.

“Seguridad Inalámbrica demonstrates the extraordinary benefits that 3G wireless connectivity can bring to enhance public safety,” said Carlos Sanchez, director of business development for Qualcomm Latin America. “We look forward to building on the knowledge we have gained during the first phase of the project to further expand this innovative application and system to benefit many more people in phase two.”

Seguridad Inalámbrica continues to create a foundation and system for crime mapping and demonstrates how the applications enabled by advanced wireless technologies can turn a mobile phone into a tool for improving the implementation of more effective crime prevention measures. The Seguridad Inalámbrica project was conceived to advance crime reduction efforts and improve citizen security – to find better ways to fight crime for the people of El Salvador and elsewhere.

The Council of Mayors of the San Salvador Metropolitan Area (COAMSS) was founded in July 1987 with the main objective of facilitating the reconstruction of the city of San Salvador and its outlying municipalities which were affected by an earthquake on October 10th 1986.

The COAMSS ( is currently comprised of 14 municipalities (San Salvador, Ciudad Delgado, Mejicanos, Soyapango, Cuscatancingo, San Marcos, Ilopango, Nejapa, Apopa, Ayutuxtepeque, San Martín, Tonacatepeque, Apopa and Antiguo Cuscatlán), and its strategic goal is to “Build a democratic, economically competitive and sustainable AMSS which focuses on national development and development opportunities for its citizens”.

In order to fulfill one of its main tasks (the planning and control of urban development), the COAMSS created the Planning Office for the San Salvador Metropolitan Area (OPAMSS), whose objectives include investigating and analyzing development problems within the AMSS, as well as proposing strategic actions for their resolution.
