Khammam police go the ‘smart’ way

In a significant step towards ‘smart policing,’ the Khammam police have embraced mobile technology in a big way by launching RapidCop , an integrated mobile application, to effectively prevent and control crime, improve the efficiency of day to day operations and accountability in the department.

The mobile app is equipped with a host of key features to facilitate two-way communication, GPS-based vehicle tracking system for real-time monitoring of the movement of vehicles, and incident tracking and reporting.

Collector D.S. Lokesh Kumar and Superintendent of Police Shahnawaz Qasim formally launched the app at a programme held here on Sunday. TrakitNow Technologies Pvt. Ltd., has developed the GPS-enabled app exclusively for the Khammam police.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Qasim said the control and command centre application will allow real-time tracking of the police patrol vehicles moving across the city at a click of a button. There will also be two-way communication between the control room and the police personnel in the field.

Any incident in the city can be reported to the control room by clicking and sending pictures and video clips from the scene of the crime through the mobile app. The app facilitates real-time incident reporting with “Dial 100” integration. This will, in turn, pave the way for quick response from the control room to any incidents of crime or any other emergency situations like major accidents and natural calamities.

Officer on Special Duty (administration) R. Bhaskaran and others were also present.

Long-term steps sought to solve Guwahati traffic snarls

GUWAHATI, Oct 3 - Urging the State Government to plan long-term measures for solving the problem of traffic congestion in the city, the Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) today said that the government must reopen the existing roads, closed due to various reasons, and find alternative routes to ease traffic snarls.
The NGO also rapped the Guwahati traffic police for creating a chaotic situation in the city by making several roads one-way with effect from Monday.

Addressing the media here, former SGBG president and public activist Dhiren Baruah said that along with the population, the number of cars has also increased manifold in Guwahati and in the absence of a proper regulation mechanism, the congestion is turning more chaotic day by day.

“A practical and well thought out plan is necessary to control the situation as the quick-fix measures might turn more disastrous for both commuters and the administration. Earlier also, we had given several representations to the State government, including the recommendations by renowned expert in road and management of traffic, Dr Padma Bora,” he added.

SGBG acting president Krishna K Barua advocated smart policing and bringing to book rule violators, so that others are discouraged to break traffic rules.

Social activist Ajay Dutta stated that as Guwahati is under several authorities including the GDD, GMC, GMDA, PHE, PWD and even Jal Board, the problems of the city are nobody’s concern now. “The issue of road is also connected to the problem of footpath encroachment, lack of garages to park vehicles at night, lack of parking space, etc. Popularity of cabs like Ola and Uber has made travelling convenient for people, but there should also be a proper mechanism to park these vehicles at night,” Dutta said.

Senior advocate Satyen Deka rued the fact that while making sudden traffic arrangements, the police do not take the public into confidence.

“The horrible traffic arrangements done today highlight the lack of knowledge regarding Guwahati city on the part of the authorities concerned. It not only resulted in massive traffic chaos in the entire city today, it also caused immense suffering to the common people, particularly school students and their parents,” he said.

“Those travelling by public transport, specially taking cabs, autorickshaws, etc, had to pay exorbitantly as they had to take longer routes today,” he added.

The organisation’s general secretary Kailash Sarma sought the help and cooperation from all components of society to maintain a smooth flow of traffic on the roads of Guwahati.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra FadnavisMaharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today launched Mumbai's city-wide CCTV surveillance network that is expected to make the surveillance system stronger.
A total of 4717 CCTV cameras across 1510 locations, covering almost 80 percent of the city, were inaugurated today. Apart from the fixed cameras, 5 mobile surveillance vans will also start patrolling the city.
"In less than one and a half years we've succeeded in making Mumbai City surveillance network go Live. It'll help in smarter surveillance, better policing & traffic management," said Fadnavis.

"We're committed to make Maharashtra, the 1st fully Digital State and by creating digital villages we're bridging gap between cities & villages. We wish to provide best healthcare & educational facilities to all villagers & also best market facilities to farmers by use of technology. Only technology can ensure equality because it doesn't discriminate or work on the basis of gender, caste, creed or any other basis." Fadnavis added.
MAKING SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM STRONGER
As many as 4,717 out of the 6,000 cameras have become operational today. The remaining 1,200 cameras are expected to become functional by November.
×
The cameras used for the project are Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras (PTZ cameras), which are capable of taking high-resolution images while allowing for remote directional change and zoom functionality.
The footage is saved for 30 days, but can be extended and saved for up to 180 days. Most of these cameras also support night vision and 360-degree coverage. To allow for better coverage along the coasts, where conventional monitoring is difficult, thermal-sensing cameras have been used.
Each camera will be linked to the main control room at police commissioner's office in South Mumbai and the emergency control room in Kalina.
The live feed will also be made available to traffic police's main control room, all police stations, DCP's offices and Regional Additional CP's offices. However, only the main control rooms at Crawford Market and Kalina will have the ability to operate the cameras.
The CCTV networks also has a face recognition system.

Madison Police Give Nonviolent Drug Offenders Choice: Arrest Or Treatment

The Madison Police Department has received a three-year, $700,000 federal "smart policing" grant to try a new way to deal with nonviolent drug offenders who commit low-level crimes. Rather than arrest, drug users will be given a chance to get treatment.

The heroin and prescription drug epidemic is a problem both state and local law enforcement say they can't solve through arrests alone. Madison Police Chief Mike Koval said Thursday the treatment option makes sense in many ways.

"It's more expensive to take people to jail, it's more stigmatizing to create records of arrest and prosecutions," Koval said. "It doesn’t begin to touch upon the significant underlying core of what is creating these anomalies to their behaviors because of the need for the drug."

The pilot program will fund new administrators and counselors to get drug users who are picked up for low-level offenses into treatment. Still, it will not pay for more treatment beds, which has been an issue in many areas of the state.

Stated goals of the program include helping to reduce the workload of the Dane County District Attorney's Office, easing jail overcrowding and preventing arrest records that could keep a drug user from getting a job. Koval said the heroin and prescription drug epidemic has resulted in more fatal overdoses and a rise in property crimes.

"The intensity, the frequency and the fallout have created this perfect storm that we have to do something different," he said.

Under the Madison Addiction Recovery Initiative, a drug offender would not be eligible for treatment if they commit a felony or violent crime. There are similar programs around the country.

Soon, Stealth Body Cameras for Mumbai Police

Mumbai Police will soon get state-of-the-art stealth body cameras to be deployed during security checks and patrolling, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis announced on Wednesday. The move comes after a spate of attacks on policemen on duty.
The cameras, which policemen would wear on their person, will be linked to the control room. “It will help us dispatch assistance in case of an assault and will also act as video evidence.
Eventually, it will become a deterrent," Fadnavis said during an event to inaugurate the Mumbai Heart Healthy City programme for city policemen.
The programme, being partnered by the Asian Heart Institute, aims to offer free health check-ups to 5,000 policemen in the initial phase. It also includes a comprehensive heart-focused examination and medical mapping.
Fadnavis has appealed to other city hospitals, too, to come forward and join the all-inclusive health assessment programme to cover more than 18,000 police officials above 40 years of age.
The programme also aims to keep a digital health record of officials across all the police stations.
"Policing as a profession is highly stressful and many of them suffer from heart ailments. This initiative will help transform the lives of police personnel and take preventive measures," Fadnavis said.
The Maharashtra chief minister also announced 25,000 to 30,000 ownership houses for police personnel and a first-of-its kind smart township project in the city for the force with about 8,000 houses.

Top officials to get CM's straight talk on crime

Facing the challenge of sprucing up his government's image on the law and order front in the election year, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav will hold a crucial conference of police and administrative officers from across the state on Wednesday. In what is being viewed as probably the last such meeting before the state goes to the polls, the CM is likely to drive home his stern message for a zero tolerance policy while dealing with communal forces and crime against women. He is also likely to emphasize on video connectivity of police stations with state police headquarters.

For fine-tuning the details and agenda of the conference, chief secretary Deepak Singhal held a top-level meeting in his office on Tuesday with principal secretary, home, Debashis Panda, principal secretary, information technology, Sanjiv Saran and the director general of police, Javeed Ahmed. The importance of the conference, to be attended by all IGs, DMs and SPs, could be gauged from the fact that the CM has reserved the entire day for it.

DIGs and divisional commissioners have not been called so that they remain in the field. In a rare departure from the past, principal secretary, information technology, has also been called to attend the conference to explain how IT and video conferencing could help in effective policing.

"Akhilesh Yadav, who is confident that his agenda of development will stand him in good stead in 2017 elections, feels that if the law and order situation is kept in control further, it would not only silence his political opponents but also enhances his chances of coming back. It is in this background that he has convened the conference," says a government source.

The CM, who has been expressing concerning over the widespread traffic congestions, will also ask the officers to maintain road discipline and focus on the highway crimes, including loots and assaults on women. This is the first time when along with the police and administrative officers, jail authorities are also being summoned to maintain a strict vigil inside the jails and go for a crackdown if some criminals or gangs were remote-controlling crime from within the prisons.

Speaking to TOI, the chief secretary said that the way the CM's agenda for development has been implemented and all projects are nearing their completion, his directions for law and order and crime control would also be taken up to the level of police stations and outposts, so that the people get relief.

Now traffic police offer roses to traffic offenders

AGRA: In yet another example of classic policing, the city traffic police offered 'Roses' to people who were found violating traffic rules and asked them not to repeat the mistake again.

Often it is found, that two-wheeler drivers prefer to veil their face with handkerchief and scarf rather than wearing helmet. The traffic cops on Monday offered flower and a pamphlet having traffic rules, instead of issuing challan to them.

As per national crime bureau data, in 2014, Agra reported 492 deaths in road accident, while 803 were gravely injured. Majority were of those victims, were not wearing helmets.

Speaking to TOI, superintendent of police for traffic in Agra, Rajesh Kumar Singh, "The idea was to inculcate and embed the sense of responsibility to follow traffic rules among citizens, who after so much of challan drive have still not learn to abide the traffic rules."

"We were shaming them in front of public by offering them roses, so that they can now wear helmet, follow traffic signals and avoid rash driving. All the traffic offenders were given pamphlet of traffic rules and regulations," he added.

In the month of June, 15 day's drive against traffic violators across UP, Agra topped the chart of issuing challan and collecting penalties. Though out of total of 9,643 drivers who were challaned for violations of traffic norms only 1-2 % were women drivers. An amount of Rs 17, 21,300 was recovered from them violators of traffic rules.
