Helicóptero com câmera da PMPara entender um pouco melhor esse enredo do embate da technology contra o crime, Maybe the easiest is to begin where almost all police occurrences start: the Copom – military police Operations Center. Here, are centralized all 35 thousand daily connections made to the 190 in São Paulo.

This war operation in attendance of the so-called, added intelligent systems Digital record of occurrences and Criminal information. With them, the cops have an online crime map.

In this small screen, o soldado monitora o sinal de GPS e sabe onde está cada viatura, who is onboard, In addition to locate occurrences and establish points where there are larger criminal incidents.

In this same building, get the images of more than 270 cameras installed at strategic points of the city. Are electronic eyes that work 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Some of these cameras are the latest generation: they move in 360 degrees and has range of up to three miles away.

“We had narcotic trafficking points on praça da Sé. We were an hour and a half by identifying who were drug dealers and users and, from there, had the police intervention. We arrested six individuals, because we are monitoring”, account the Lieutenant Shiro, COPOM spokesman.

Aside from the cameras, policing has "motolinks" like this. From them, You can record an entire operation and transmit real-time images to this mobile unit. If you need to get off the vehicle, the officer can take this backpack and continue filming and broadcasting it live. To complete the set, This is the "Snake", a cutting-edge fiber-optic camera capable of shooting up through a Keyhole. With thermal sensor, She identifies um suspeito mesmo que ele esteja escondido em um ambiente totalmente escuro.

A recent ally are the tablets, until July this year will be installed in all 11 thousand cars. In addition to the GPS, in tablets, the cops will receive information from the Copom, know where the other vehicles and do queries like plates of vehicles and RG's of suspects. All information is transmitted via cellular telephony, the 3 g network.

“The goal of the tablet is take knowledge to the COP, consolidate this information, pegar esses dados em tempo real nos nossos bancos de dados e transmiti-los aos computers de bordo para essas viaturas. Then, Now you can get an idea of what is possible to do in the future”, explains the Try Cel. Alfredo Deak Jr, Head of dep. data processing of PM.

The next step, that too is already in the testing phase, is the installation of cameras in their own vehicles. For this to work, the PM is studying a project in LTE, the 4 g – which is the next generation of mobile phones that is already in operation in countries like the United States. With the extra speed offered by the 4 g, It will be possible to transmit real-time video to the system.

The last chapter of this story walks across the sky: are the helicopters. Here, What draws the most attention are the infrared thermal cameras. They revolve 360 degrees and are capable of identifying an individual by body heat; and still has the function of tracking, i.e., can automatically track a moving object. Of course, all of this technology comes at a price. In the case, 800 thousand dollars, nearly one million and three hundred thousand dollars for each camera.

The helicopters are still the function of "downlink or uplink". Through this antenna, they can both receive and transmit images to base but also send the images taken from upstairs downtown. Only in technology, each of these helicopters has approximately 2 millions of dollars, or about 3 and a half million dollars in equipment.

“One of the major vectors today, in charge of the institution, is working with technology and intelligence, optimizing our resources. Today a car has embedded technological resources that provide cutting-edge information as marginal that have already been arrested in the region. Then, the policeman is passing on site and are able to know instantly who lives on the street, who lived and who usually act in that region”, explains Lieutenant Colonel. Marco Antonio Severo, Commander of Eagle Group. The Lieutenant also has that with all this, added to the capabilities of the helicopter, It forms a system of technological resources of first world.

The first world technology has given results in combating crime. Of course there is still a long way to go, para que as ruas brasileiras sejam realmente seguras: but it's a start. Released earlier this month by the Ministry of Justice, the Map of violence points to the State of São Paulo in Brazil as what else reduced homicide rates in the country. In recent 10 years, This reduction comes to 80%.

A bit about us

    The Group generally appeared in Tips 2007 from innovative ideas on troubleshooting problems faced daily by those who use the technology and computer science, both ordinary users and technicians. But where did, why and what is the purpose of this site?
