Most of the major cities in Uganda and Africa at large are faced with security and safety challenges. Several cases of loss of property have been reported with little follow up by security enforcement agencies. This is mainly due to lack of information (surveillance data). This challenge can be solved by increasing the number of surveillance camera installations all around major cities in the country. Live data from these cameras can be used to track and apprehend criminals with credible evidence. This can be achieved using facial recognition software.
