Background

Cachoeirinha is located in the metropolitan area of Porto Alegre with 43 km² and approximately 120 thousand inhabitants. The City is well known for having the headquarters of important national and international companies, earning a high rate of GST (Goods and Service Tax). The City Government is largely geared to the welfare of the local society and aimed, therefore, an efficient solution to improve the security of its inhabitants.

Challenges

Maintaining social stability and safety, fighting against crime, and creating a sound business environment are the primary tasks for the government. Yet the increasing frequency of natural disasters and public emergencies puts much more challenges to most municipalities, and Cachoeirinha is no different. The situation was critical, and communication was a failure, with obsolete vehicles and a central security system poorly structured. The government wanted to upgrade its analog system and establish a city-wide command and control system with the most advanced wireless IP technology, visualised dispatching technology, and location positioning technology.

Solutions

Hytera team in Brazil visited the city and drew what would be the best solution for its inhabitants. Hytera DMR digital communication solution with professional dispatcher system SmartDispatch and portable and mobile terminals PD78X/MD78X was then implemented across the city. The SmartDispatch system was deployed in the monitoring centre of the public security department, where the coordination team could control the mobile teams. Portable and mobile terminals PD78X/MD78X were deployed inside the cars for the communication and dispatching between mobile teams.

Benefits

Besides, with GPS positioning and visualized dispatching features, the public security department can allocate all the resources more efficiently for a complete city-wide security control.
