As more U.S. cities realize benefits from smart city initiatives, it is important for local officials and policymakers to ensure comprehensive planning promotes security and resiliency. Held in coordination with the Congressional Smart Cities Caucus, this briefing examines the supporting role of security technologies within the broader framework of sensors in smart city ecosystems, and how they can be leveraged to support public safety, increase situational awareness, enhance emergency response and provide real-time information during natural disasters.
