Public area security

We unlock safer events and public places with biometric security technologies and video analytics.

Time is of the essence when it comes to ensuring public security at major events and in particular vulnerable places. Police and security forces, notably patrolling officers, have to rapidly respond to incidents in order to prevent disturbances from escalating in crowded areas. To support them, we offer intelligent and intuitive systems and mobile biometric security technologies. Our solutions use highly-accurate algorithms that help secure major events, critical buildings and infrastructures such as city centers, malls, railway stations, and airports. Our law enforcement technologies improve the safety of citizens wherever they may be.

Supporting public security forces to secure events

IDEMIA offers biometric technologies that help reinforce security at major events, such as international summits, annual general meetings and sporting festivals. With advanced video analytics we also enable event organizers to manage access control and to ensure the smooth running of an event while ensuring convenience for visitors. Our comprehensive approach to public security enables our clients to guarantee interconnectivity of new and existing systems.

Protecting areas of interest

Video and image data is crucial to secure highly-sensitive places. With IDEMIA’s video analytics platform, the notion of preventing an incident before it happens is feasible if the video footage is matched against a watchlist to protect citizens and visitors. Video analytics is also useful for the day-to-day securing of a city, for example detecting crowds and intrusions and ensuring that citizens comply with local health regulations.

Mobile law enforcement technologies to complete tasks on the go

It is essential to equip patrolling officers with mobile biometric technology to enable on-the-spot identity verification and complete administrative tasks. Such technology could be used in specific handheld devices. Alternatively, it could also be integrated into equipment that officers already carry with them such as smartphones with a dedicated app. IDEMIA supports patrolling officers with both options to help them with their everyday public security missions.
