Municipalities are investing in technology to help them better protect their residents, infrastructure and reputations. There’s been tremendous growth in the number of drones, audio-recording devices and cameras used by law enforcement, transportation, utilities and other departments over the last several years. Projections confirm that the trend in U.S. body-worn cameras will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 38% until 2025, and CCTV cameras are expected to grow at 9% annually through 2025. Smart home surveillance camera sales will more than double between 2018 and 2023, and there will be more than 270 million smartphones in the U.S. by 2022, all capable of snapping photos and filming events. Additionally, the internet of things has helped municipalities tap into even more data streams that can help reduce crime and protect the public.
