BGS supports police and other security agencies to modernise their operating platforms to effectively service their evolving safety and security needs. Safer City platform provides an integrated suite of technologies, innovative Concept of Operations, quality focused processes and staff capabilities to proactively manage the security situation and to professionalise the security response to incidents.
The overall aim of the Safer City Command, Control, Communication, Intelligence, Surveillance, Threat Assessment and Response (C3iStar) programme is to modernise the infrastructure, systems and capabilities for the police and other security and public safety agencies. This is to proactively manage the security situation and to professionalise the security response to incidents by moving towards more preventive and mission-focused deployment of resources.
Converged C3iStar Platform
The converged C3iStar platform addresses both the Demand Management and Resource Management functions within policing and security organisations. Central to its operation is the ‘Decision Support and Intervention Platform’ which is underpinned by context-specific intelligence that is made available to the right people and in a timely fashion. For the Police, this delivers a critical operational decision superiority over criminals, terrorists and subversives. The system provides officers and staff with enhanced operational situation awareness so that the force can see and understand current, predicted and emergent demands in time and space through a ‘threat, risk, prevention and reduction’ lens.

The organisational ‘system’ can see all available and potentially available resources including their location, skills, capability and availability.
