Technology at the service of security

Images recorded with bodycams are fully protected against any sort of modification or manipulation.
The Barcelona Fire Service will also be taking part in the congress and offering a talk about their A30 vehicle at 12 noon on Thursday. The A30 is an operative mobile command unit used by the fire service and equipped with tools to facilitate coordination, management and decision-making in the field. It is particularly suitable for service requirements in lengthy or more complex incidents. It also allows for command work and the sharing of updated tactical situations with the operational centre in real time.
Display of zero-emissions vehicles
During the congress, the City Police will be displaying one of its all-terrain electric motorbikes, a zero-emissions vehicles with a range of 146 kilometres which makes the mobility of officers more sustainable for surveillance in woodlands and in urban parks. The bike also offers greater protection for officers and features priority signage and GPS.
