I.R.I.S. (Innovative Response to Improve
Safety) is the Orlando Police Department’s state-of-the-art safety
camera program. Using Downtown Orlando’s federally-funded homeland
security network as a foundation, OPD is deploying these “smart cameras”
around the City. OPD personnel will be able to monitor the cameras 24
hours a day from a central command center. These cameras will allow
officers to intervene in crimes as, or even before, they happen.
I.R.I.S. is a textbook example of the way police departments around the
world are embracing technology as a way to enhance safety and increase
the quality of life in their respective communities. The use of cameras
and camera network technology as part of a larger crime fighting and
crime prevention initiative represents a major technological leap
forward for Orlando’s law enforcement community.
Thanks to a public-private partnership that leverages the resources of
our corporate community, local businesses, citizen groups and law
enforcement partners, we are able to implement this program and expand
our camera network.
Keeping citizens safe is my number one priority and I.R.I.S. is an
example of that commitment. For more information on I.R.I.S. and to view
