Thales to Help Mexico City Expand Surveillance Network

Thales-logoThales and partner Telmex have been awarded a contract to integrate 7,000 surveillance cameras and pieces of related equipment for a citizen security program in Mexico City.

The work will expand Mexico City’s video surveillance network that is intended to help law enforcement officials monitor crime, natural disasters, terrorism and other public safety threats, Thales said Friday.

Thales’ security technology is designed to analyze visual data, manage emergency calls and simulate critical environments.

According to Thales, the system helped decrease the number of crimes across the city by more than 32 percent as well as reduce the police’s average response time to less than 4 minutes during the past five years.

Mexico City is currently using more than 8,000 camera systems that were installed by Thales and Telmex under a government contract awarded in 2009.
