The City Security Council is on the verge of launching a new Incident and Crisis Management platform that will facilitate real time reporting into and out of the City of London Police JCCR (Joint Contact and Control Room) with security companies operating in the City.
As well as real time reporting of incidents such as missing persons, suspicious vehicles and change of security alerts, it will provide the police with the ability to galvanise support to help quickly set up cordons or support mass evacuations.
The software for the new Incident and Crisis Management platform will be created by Zinc Systems, a UK based digital technology company that specialises in creating business intelligence, incident management and communications platforms. The new platform will be ready to be delivered and deployed by the end of 2021.
“City Security Council Members have been instrumental in driving this initiative forward. The collaboration between all organisations has been excellent and demonstrates the passion to create a unified approach to securing The City of London. The CSC would like to welcome other security stakeholders to be part of this fantastic initiative and to promote the professionalism of our security teams.”
“This new comms platform was a key part of our original strategy when founding the Council and I am delighted to see this vision now become a reality. The platform will allow us to share intelligence extremely quickly and allow the police to call on our support. This will help us work even closer in support of the City of London Police allowing our security officers to be even more effective in their role to help provide a safe and secure environment.”
“We are delighted to be a part of such a collaborative vision, that will see the City of London Police and Security companies come together, to closer support the City. Our platform, Synapse will be the engine of the City of London JCCR and via working with all the CSC Members it will drive proactive intelligence sharing, as well as a rapid approach to incident and crisis management.”
