Affiliated with the French Ministry of Interior, the Service des technologies et des systèmes d'information de la sécurité intérieure (ST(SI)2) is responsible for protecting the public at densely populated events. One such event, the Grande Braderie de Lille, sees the town’s population swell from 230,000 inhabitants to more than two and a half million people over a weekend every September.
Aware of the police solution offered by analytics—that is, the mining and management of data insights—Accenture was asked to pilot its video analytic service platform at the annual Lille event to increase information accuracy, improve decision making and enhance the performance of the French public safety officials’ operational teams.
By adding analytics to standard CCTV footage, police officers could detect and assess far more incidents, providing a better service to citizens and improving safety throughout the event. What is more, the police solution connected to existing external public safety systems to create greater intelligence.
