Safe Communities

Ensuring Safety and Security in the 21st Century
National security, defense and public safety agencies face challenges and threats that are more complex and unpredictable than ever before. While traditional threats still persist, a new set of challenges driven by extreme events have created an environment where missions and priorities change daily. The same workflows and approaches organizations have relied on for years are no longer effective enough to secure our nations and communities.

Esri’s ArcGIS software empowers safety and security agencies with a proven geospatial platform to create a safe community. With ArcGIS, organizations across multiple jurisdictions and levels of government can collaborate and share information on a single, accessible platform to achieve shared situational awareness. No matter the mission, ArcGIS empowers every organization with the capabilities they need to identify threats, preserve critical infrastructure and save lives.
