CentralSquare, Genetec Partner to Bring Real-Time Video to First Responders
The partnership enables public safety agencies across North America to use existing public and private video cameras when responding to 911 calls.
Lake Mary, Fla. — CentralSquare, a developer of public safety software, announces it has entered into a partnership with Genetec.
The partnership combines CentralSquare’s unified Public Safety Enterprise and Pro suites and flagship products from Genetec to enable public safety agencies across North America to use existing public and private video cameras to reduce the number of victims of crimes and disaster while ensuring the safety of police officers and first responders, according to the company.
CentralSquare provides an integrated public safety suite that manages everything from receiving a 911 call, dispatching responders, managing the records of the incident and providing tools for corrective actions.
Genetec provides a software backbone that allows cities to manage video surveillance for hundreds to thousands of cameras, as well as provide the ability to gain strategic, data-driven insights pulled from a range of critical data sources.
This partnership is a first in the public safety sector and marks a critical shift away from siloed and ineffective video surveillance towards a smarter future that unifies critical, lifesaving data into a single pane of glass, according to a joint announcement.
“As a result of this partnership, when a citizen calls 911, dispatchers will be able to seamlessly see what is happening at the caller’s location, ensure the right type of emergency response is dispatched, improve the situational awareness and safety of the responding officer, and have an integrated video record of the incident for future investigations,” says CentralSquare CEO Simon Angove. “By seamlessly integrating CentralSquare’s world-class Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) software with Genetec’s ground-breaking, real-time crime center technologies, we are enabling thousands of public safety agencies to speed-up dispatch center operations, shorten emergency response time, and reduce the number of victims of crimes and disasters across North America.”
