Italian police department slashes park crime 80% with i-PRO AI cameras

TOKYO – i-PRO announced that the Gardone Val Trompia Police Department in Lombardy, Italy, has chosen i-PRO’s multi-sensor AI-based security cameras to help keep a popular community park safe for city residents and visitors.

Mella Park, a green space located in Gardone, a city of 11,200, is described as a vibrant meeting place for residents of Gardone and nearby communities. As a result of criminal activity in the area, Gardone Police Chief Commissioner Patrizio Tosoni sought to give police officers greater visibility across the park and improve their response time to any incidents.

Their existing surveillance cameras, however, didn’t give them the data they needed to make meaningful improvements. "The presence of only four outdated and nearly unusable cameras in the park translated into longer investigations and a less timely response to reports for us,” Tosoni said.

So they worked with lintegration partner Suardi Srl, Tosoni and his department to undertake a security modernization project. Suardi President Claudio Sasso said, “The multi-sensor devices we needed had to be extremely easy to install on relatively tall poles, offer the best resolution available, be robust, and easily integrate with systems already present in other neighboring municipalities also managed by Commander Tosoni. We also needed artificial intelligence (AI) to enable analysis of people and vehicles for fast and clear evidence gathering. Given these requirements, i-PRO cameras were our immediate recommendation. They’re a company with which we have been collaborating for years with a high degree of satisfaction."

In Mella Park Suardi deployed several i-PRO multi-sensor cameras including model WV-S8574L, with four lenses of 8MP (4K) each, and model WV-S8573L, with three lenses of 8MP (4K) each. The cameras are the most advanced multi-sensor security devices available that also include deep learning intelligence, providing the Gardone Val Trompia police with essential support for monitoring and investigative activities.

Tosoni reported, "Since updating the park's video surveillance system in May things have significantly improved. Today, just a few months after implementing the i-PRO camera system, we have seen an 80% reduction in crimes within Mella Park. We're only getting started."
