Alfenas municipal government reduces crime with IP cameras

Residents can count on 24-hour a day protection and faster police response times

“Our records show reduced crime in the areas where the cameras are installed and better control of incidents in those areas.“ Vander Cherri Marcolino, Chief of the Alfenas Public Security Department.


The Brazilian town of Alfenas, located 342 km from the Minas Gerais state capital of Belo Horizonte, needed to stand up to its crime problem and reduce crime for the safety of its 74,000 citizens. The Alfenas Public Security Department conducted a study to identify the primary high crime rate areas in the city and decided to install a more modern video surveillance system to reduce crime.


Seal Telecom, an Axis partner, along with the Alfenas Public Security Department, designed an IP video surveillance solution integrated with an Operations Control Center (OCC). Axis IP cameras were installed strategically for full use of pan, tilt and zoom functions in all directions. These functions allow the complete monitoring of an environment within a range of 45 m for identification, 230 m for recognition and 1,100 m for detection.


The municipality of Alfenas now has the latest generation equipment, capturing high-resolution images 24 hours a day, storing them for use by law enforcement officers, in case they are needed later. The captured images are transmitted to the Operations Control Center using Digifort software, for viewing locations in real time, allowing efficient analysis of a situation and quick response to any emergencies.
