Faced with increasing crime and slowing emergency response, the Executive Commission of the State Public Security System (CESESP) for Tlaxcala, Mexico, deployed a significant upgrade and expansion of their video system with open platform, data-driven video technology from Milestone Systems. Officials saw a 93% reduction in cargo thefts and 22.5% decrease in vehicle thefts.

As vehicle and cargo thefts rose, and unresolved traffic accidents grew to worrying levels in the State of Tlaxcala, Mexico, authorities wanted more video cameras in the territory to help combat such issues. The extensive system upgrade required a highly scalable, open-platform video management software (VMS) to enable a fast and smooth integration of more than 800 new cameras from different manufacturers. State officials also needed to keep the existing system fully operational throughout the upgrade and wanted software with a reliable foundation for future expansion.
The Executive Commission for the State Public Security Systems (CESESP) needed to both expand and upgrade the capabilities of its existing security infrastructure with a comprehensive video system that could handle video streams from different cameras by multiple manufacturers. The new system includes cameras from Bosch Security and Safety Systems, Hanwha Vision, Hikvision, and Pelco, all integrated and managed by XProtect Corporate VMS from Milestone Systems.
The system is also fully integrated with the BriefCam Video Analytics Platform, delivering video intelligence for system managers to identify, monitor, investigate, and visualize incidents and video data and make smarter decisions.
The BriefCam video analytics seamlessly integrate into Milestone’s XProtect Smart Client. This detects, identifies and classifies video metadata for more efficient investigations and decisions, such as finding missing persons, investigating vandalism, theft, assaults, accidents, injuries, or acts of violence — extracting and analyzing through heatmaps, dashboards, and visualizations.
The Milestone platform aligns with CESESP’s vision for a centralized system with all elements integrated, providing operators and police with full coverage of the analytics.
After the upgrade, data from the Executive Secretariat of National Public Security Systems reported that Tlaxcala had the lowest crime in Mexico. They saw a 93% reduction in cargo thefts from carriers, and vehicle thefts decreased by 22.5%.
In the near future, each municipality in the territory will have its own focused XProtect VMS. Using Milestone Interconnect, all the local subsystems will integrate directly with the state-wide platform, where professionals monitor around the clock on a large, 24-screen video wall. This setup will provide a cost-efficient way to gain central surveillance of multiple sites spread across the region.
Government officials have also started expanding the C4 center to C5i status by adding Coordination and Intelligence to the current Control, Command, Communications, and Computing functions (C4). Migrating to C5i status will strengthen the services of the center through tight agency coordination, including the 911 and 089 response systems. The CESESP plans to increase intelligent monitoring points for greater visualization and control — providing a safe and secure environment for the citizens and visitors of Tlaxcala.
