Halo Solutions is working with Luton Borough Council to make events in the area safer.
When responding to a crisis, every second counts and Halo dashboards can be created and deployed in less than ten seconds. Perfect for any emergency planning team.
All community events in Luton will be able to use the Local Authority Halo licence and this means every event, will get the same opportunity to access world leading safety and security technology without having to worry about budget. Keeping the citizens of Luton as safe as possible at every event they go to.
Halo will be deployed across community events all over Luton and has already re-united over 10 missing children with their families, help disrupt gang activity by identifying members and seeing them dispersed for their anti-sopcial activities and supported an armed policing unit stop a suspicious vehicle that drove onto an event site towards a crowd. When the vehicle stopped, the occupants ran but not before their images were captured and distributed via Halo. That's the difference an app makes.

Hear from our satisfied customer
Luton Borough Council’s Civil Protection and Business Community Manager, Pritesh Mistry, says: “We bought Halo after seeing it in action at Luton International Carnival 2019 and at the Ashes Test match at Edgbaston last summer. We were really impressed with the various features of HALO, especially the way that all aspects of an event/incident are logged, ready for reporting post-event. We also liked the fact that we can restrict what different users can see – so that the overall picture can be maintained by the control room, and individual users are not bombarded with constant information.”

Future features when available
Halo will be used at various Luton events including the International Carnival and VE Day Celebrations on 8th May and the Luton mela, which attracts over 40,000 people across two days in August. Halo will not only be limited to use at events but also in an operational sense for day-to-day use with the borough’s public protection teams, including emergency planning, parking, licencing and neighbourhood enforcement.
Halo Solutions's Chief of Operations, Greg Horsford, adds: “We built our system from the ground up to be exceptionally versatile and robust. This allows Luton Council to deploy Halo in response to natural disasters like floods, to coordinate a full multi-agency response and set up relief centres. Halo can support their lone workers as they patrol the streets of Luton keeping them clean and safe. Halo will also provide its traditional functions at events across Luton allowing the public access to a system to keep them safe. Its a truly multi-functional, multi-agency, multi-award winning system like no other on the market and with neighbouring authorities also on the system it will create some brilliant opportunities for cross-border, partnership working.”
