The objective of the SoDR project is to tackle the problem of long waiting time for help requested for crimes and other incidents in Lviv. The average waiting time is 20 minutes but can even reach 40 minutes. Everybody including residents and visitors, need to feel safe, protected and be able to get help in a timely manner. The project will help regional and local authorities to respond to the common challenges in the field of safety and security.
According to a sociological survey conducted in Lviv, 76% of inhabitants feel safe in the city during the day and only 40% at night. The SoDR project implementation aims to increase these numbers to 85% during the day and 60% at night. The waiting time for help will decrease from 15 to 5 minutes.
To achieve this goal the new administrative building will be completed and equipped with system that gather data received from CCTV city cameras, six police stations located in Lviv will be reconstructed, and a new administrative building will gain an integrated multiservice telecommunication system. Moreover
the emergency communication subsystem, based on operative information and monitoring response of crimes, will improve, as well as a data transmission
net-work with CCTV cameras will be created. The main objective is to coordinate the cooperation of emergency services to provide security
and required help to the citizens and visitors of Lviv.
Through the achievement of the planned actions, the SoDR project will affect development of the region, significantly reduce the number of crimes committed
in public places and create conditions for prevention thereof. This will increase tourist flow and allow Lviv citizens and visitors to feel safe and receive timely
and accurate help in situations of threat.
