Minutes Set Up
USE CASE PREVIEW
Queen’s Park Savannah is listed in the Guinness Book of
Records as the world’s largest roundabout. As revelers’ safety
was paramount to the government, Trinidad & Tobago Police
Service needed to come up with new ways of preventing
incidents that could harm civilians and cause bad publicity.
Uninterrupted flight: To be able to anticipate incidents and
intervene as quickly as possible, police forces needed to have a
continuous overview of the crowd gathered in the park and
Crowd monitoring: Because crowds are so thick, surveillance
from a ground level is ineffective as street level CCTV is blocked
by music trucks and large costumes.
Traffic management: Unlawful parking in the vicinity of the park
could contributes to traffic jams which as a result, will restrict
police cars’ ability to respond to calls.
