Synopsis

Law enforcement and approaches to city safety have evolved significantly over the last 20 years as information and communication technology has improved how data is captured, stored, and used to help make better operational decisions. We are on the cusp of the next evolution of the Safe City, with 4G LTE enabling vast and quicker data transfer while the continuing advances in IT, including big data analytics, consumerisation, and cloud-based services, allows users to make sense of greater quantities of data more cheaply.

The rate at which new technologies and approaches are adopted by a city will be determined by several key factors that drive technology implementation. These factors include the threat faced by the city in terms of crime, terrorism, environmental hazards, and the wealth of the city, which may include access to international finance. Also of importance is government investment and policy towards information and communication technologies (ICT).

In 2014, Frost & Sullivan developed a model to benchmark over 600 of the globe’s most populous cities in terms of the threat they face and their ability to invest in the latest technology. This paper assesses how cities fall into clusters, why attitudes towards technology differ, and what this means for systems integrators and technology vendors.

5 Technology Investment Drivers

The threat a city faces (crime, terrorism, natural hazards), together with the ability to buy, deploy, and operate the latest technology, are factors that strongly influence a city’s procurement decision or ability to invest. Using indicators of threat, wealth, and attitudes towards technology adoption, it is possible to cluster cities according to their likelihood to adopt a unified and intelligence-led Safe City solution. However, even within clusters defined by threat, wealth, and technology adoption, there can be significant disparities between the status of technology implementation. Additional factors, including cultural, social, and political influences, can all influence local decision making. The key drivers and barriers to improved city safety are listed below.
