Safe Cities

Connectivity, collaboration, and intelligence for safe cities.



Safety in cities depends on multiple services working with singular purpose on common objectives. However, there is no overall view of risk, no single responsible authority, and no unified funding that spans across public and private sector services and levels of government. This failure compromises a city's ability to tackle fundamental safety issues and results in disconnects between expectations and how individual organizations operate and are measured.

Hexagon helpscities overcome these challenges to become safer and more resilient. We provide connectivity between systems, collaboration between teams, and greater intelligence in operations, which leads to sustainable solutions and more accountable services.


Challenges


Growing Demand

With fewer resources, agencies and city governments face more calls for service, changing mission scope, and greater frequency and severity of major incidents.

Increasing Complexity

Dense populations, interdependent infrastructure and services, and greater effects from incidents pose complex safety and security risks for cities and citizens.

Changing Expectations

Increased public scrutiny and service expectations affect public perception of safety and agency legitimacy.
