Area around Independência Arena monitored by Axis cameras

Minas Gerais Military Police adopt HD system to reduce theft and fights between fans, and oversee work of money changers and window washers

“With the support of this technology, the service that the military police are able to provide is only going to get better.” Colonel Márcio Martins Sant’Ana, general commander of the Minas Gerais Military Police.


Brazil has drawn the eyes of the world as it has become home to major sports events such as the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup. One of the main cities for such events is Belo Horizonte, located in the third-largest metropolitan region in Brazil. To ensure that investments make a positive impact on residents after such events, the state government of Minas Gerais decided to take the opportunity to improve military police services in the state and generate a legacy in the realm of public safety by installing security cameras in the area around Independência Arena, all linked to a monitoring center.


The project was developed by the Technology and Systems Department of the Minas Gerais Military Police and implemented by Experti. It involves 18 AXIS Q6034-E Network Cameras that are responsible for monitoring the urban environment and sending images in real time to the monitoring center. All the cameras are managed using software from Axis’ Brazilian partner Digifort


With training, police are able to remotely monitor events taking place in the vicinity of Independência Arena and call nearby officers to the scene to assist in resolving any potential incidents. These are the first HD cameras that the Minas Gerais Miliary Police has worked with.
