City of Bourgoin-Jallieu chooses Axis technology to create an innovative urban video protection system
A centralized system of Axis dome cameras, installed in a French community for the first time, helps provide the city with maximum safety
“The solution from Axis allows us to design an innovative technological system with advanced cameras like AXIS Q6000-E for responding to urban crime.” Jean-Claude Pardal, Deputy Mayor in charge of security in Bourgoin-Jallieu.
With 27,000 inhabitants, Bourgoin-Jallieu is the fifth largest town in the Isère region. It lies at the crossroads of the metropolises of Lyon and Grenoble, at the strategic heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The central town of the metropolis of Porte de l’Isère (CAPI), the community is highly attractive, and its population is growing. Committed to keeping things safe and peaceful for its citizens, the town uses a video surveillance system to combat urban crime such as shoplifting, illegal dumping and suspicious gatherings. The system had to be installed before the end-of-year holidays, when increased population heightens risk.
When bids came in, Axis partner Cap Sécurité was chosen for its expertise, its skill at fast deployment, and for the Axis/CASD solution it recommended. This was made up of 25 Axis motorized and fixed domes with five AXIS Q6000-E Network Dome Cameras that are ideal for urban surveillance. CASD video management software was accepted for its prowess in urban video surveillance.
After a year of use, the Bourgoin-Jallieu municipal police have noticed the equipment’s positive effects — a significant drop in thefts and holdups, and help in solving crimes. The video surveillance also helps regulate road traffic and vehicle flow, allowing the video monitoring staff to alert patrols on the ground when an incident occurs. The city plans to create an Intercommunity Center for Urban Surveillance with other CAPI towns that already have their own video surveillance system.
