A new image for Maceió

Axis network cameras help Alagoas’ government reduce crime rates, identify unregistered vehicles and raise driver awareness

“Every day, operators have access to cameras that can display images of interest to the city, such as people who might vandalize public property or cars parked on sidewalks. The Municipal Transport and Traffic Division can then be alerted.” Edmilson Cavalcante, Municipal Secretary for Community and Citizen Safety.


The Secretary of State for Social Protection has taken on the challenge of fighting crime and reducing violence and traffic accidents. Its investments have included the expansion of the number of local and military police and the installation of video surveillance systems, not only in the capital, but also in cities in the interior of Alagoas.


A total of 125 AXIS Q6034-E, AXIS P1354-E and AXIS P1344-E Network Cameras were installed across 26 of Maceió’s 50 districts. These models include mobile cameras that can pan 360° and fixed cameras for reading license plates, which are considered one of the more advanced features of the project. The system also uses the SecurOS video management software solution from Intelligent Security Systems (ISS), an Axis partner, and uses Eyes Nwhere for OCR, along with HP storage servers and Enterasys core switches.


The cameras installed in Alagoas have boosted the agility of security force activities. The video surveillance center allows effective monitoring of Social Defense intelligence targets in the fight against organized crime. Thanks to their HD quality, these images can be used as evidence in police investigations involving various types of crimes. And crime rates have been falling.
