Over the course of time, the utilization of closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance has exhibited a capacity to diminish the incidence of criminal activities in both urban and rural settings. In response to the challenges faced by a division of the Nigerian police force, grappling with inadequate infrastructure and personnel leading to decreased efficacy, this study presents a novel framework aimed at amplifying the utility of this surveillance system. The genesis of this research emanates from feedback provided by a Nigerian police division, which underscored the need for a solution applicable across diverse landscapes, whether urban or rural. The resultant model, meticulously crafted, offers a promising avenue to elevate the effectiveness of law enforcement. To validate its viability, the proposed model underwent simulation using the OPNET Modeler software, allowing for a comprehensive assessment of its potential impact when deployed. The empirical findings garnered from the simulations distinctly indicate that the implementation of this model holds substantial promise in significantly enhancing the overall efficiency of policing efforts. Furthermore, the adaptability of this model suggests its potential for broader implementation within other police forces, transcending geographical boundaries.
