Sharjah Police has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Dell to upgrade its city surveillance solution.

Under the deal, Dell will overhaul the existing city surveillance infrastructure, and replace it with a comprehensive state of the art solution to improve their video surveillance, data analysis, evidence tracking capabilities and response time.

The infrastructure hardware and software has been tailored to suit the specific needs of the Sharjah Police department and following the roll-out, Sharjah Police will have deeper and wider coverage, improved rapid-response, sharper investigation and evidence tracking abilities, as well as increased transparency.

Dell will also be supporting Sharjah Police in implementing live Video Capture for police cars and motorcycles to ensure protection of first responders and public service fleets. The company had previously implemented an E2E data centre and replaced existing infrastructure for the police force.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to enhance the security infrastructure of Sharjah Police, which is key to the success of Sharjah Police department. The range of measures that are being implemented are reflective of the importance that the Emirate of Sharjah is placing on safety, and we are confident that the addition of modern systems and applications into their arsenal of tools will have positive, impactful and far reaching results," commented Dave Brooke, general manager, Middle East, Dell.

"This collaboration signifies our continued efforts to protect the residents of Sharjah as the city continues to grow and develop. The implementation is key to our ability to monitor and store vast amounts of information that is crucial to safeguarding the security of Sharjah. Through Dell's expertise and scalable end-to-solutions we believe we have the tools to support our current endeavors, in addition to a foundation for future growth," said Lt. Colonel Khalid Buhindi, Director of Sharjah Police IT Department.
