Public Safety


(IMAGE/LOGO) First Responders - Police departments, fire departments, EMS/health care providers, school resource officers, sheriff’s offices, marshals, scene investigators, forensic analysts

(IMAGE/LOGO) Homeland Security – Border & immigration, critical infrastructure/security, emergency preparedness & management, diplomatic security

(IMAGE/LOGO) Justice officials – Prosecutors (and defendants), evidence presentation & management 


  • Need for modernized approaches – Our solutions help organizations achieve greater velocity and efficiencies in saving lives and protecting property

  • Execute with ease and affordability – Our solutions provide fast, easy, and cost-effective tools to scan and produce interactive 3D models, which can be produced by officers/firefighters (even “probies”), technicians, and even citizens of the community

  • Constrained budgets – Our solutions are delivered at a fraction of the cost of current hardware and software environments, and have ease of use where they can be used “right out of the box”

  • Rising incident rates – Our solutions are scaleable, as we understand crime and fire events are on the rise, especially regarding major incidents

  • Personnel constraints – Our solutions help departments streamline operations, and appeal to younger generations to add to the workforce

  • Speed to desired outcomes – Our solutions can scan whole buildings in minutes, and deliver full-featured 3D models the same day; this translates to less disruption for accident documentation and reconstruction, faster processing of crime scenes, and other efficiencies in managing heavy caseloads

  • Improved health and safety – Our solutions minimize the need for DAs and others to visit crime and fire scenes in person which

    • enhances safety

    • maintains scene integrity

    • and enables anyone (investigators, jurists, etc.) to visit the scene anytime in the future

  • Keep pace with technological change – Our solutions have capabilities to provide greater context and help prevent, prosecute, or prove how events occurred

  • Improved courtroom impact – Our solutions bring judges and juries into the scene in a more immersive way to improve context, impact, and the likelihood of desired outcomes


  • Simulated and immersive training – Conduct exercises in 3D using dimensionally-accurate replicas of actual buildings and spaces within their communities; “Train like you fight” takes on new meaning and impact.

  • Safety and compliance inspection documentation (fire marshals, etc.)

  • Emergency preparedness and disaster planning (ingress/egress, planning exercises, etc.)

  • Community Risk Reduction (CRR) – Perform via safety personnel evaluating digital 3D models provided by homeowners

  • Post-incident forensic/crime scene capture - Scan scene locations more comprehensively and faster than with conventional LiDAR/other technologies

  • Integration and augmentation with 911 CAD – Push 3D content to onboard vehicle systems to view models en route to incident locations

  • Public relations – Publish “Visit your community firehouse” and similar content, where remote online access to 3D models can be part of a public outreach effort

  • Benefit from other (broad public sector) scenarios and use cases – link here: Representative Use Cases – Applicable for Most Public Sector Organizations


  • First on-scene - Scans can be performed by personnel that are first to arrive on a call; even using their smartphone - vital early-stage incident context can be captured in 3D that may help investigation and case-making

  • More effective scene technicians – Faster, more comprehensive scans can be taken with more portable cameras, providing more immediate scene capture for crime or fire scenes that may need it

  • Easier Collaboration - All models are photorealistic, dimensionally accurate to within cm (or even mm) accuracy, and can be annotated and shared by sending a secure hyperlink

  • Public Safety Fusion Centers – Where these organizations exist, 3D digital twins can be an important data set to incorporate and leverage

  • Interface with existing systems and workflows – 3D models can be included within GIS, case management, 911 CAD, and other public safety system applications – where implementation can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of other system integration efforts. (Arcadus can develop and deliver these SW integrations to your organization’s legacy systems.)
