Gurugram’s lady top-cop Kala Ramachandran to introduce new e-Beat system to ensure police visibility
Bengaluru’s start-up will install the new tech system in Gurugram East & Pataudi
Gurugram, April 20 (Delhi Crown): In a bid to ensure police presence across the city and improve police-public outreach, Gurugram Commissioner of Police (CP) Kala Ramachandran is all set to introduce a new e-Beat system, which is expected to be not only simple to implement but also effective in prevention, reduction and detection of crime.
The Gurugram Police have tied up with a Bengaluru-based start-up “Rezler Systems Pvt Ltd”, to help in setting up the new e-Beat system on a pilot basis in Gurugram East and Pataudi area. “Based on the results, we shall expand the exercise to the entire district,” the Gurugram CP told www.thedelhicrown.com .
One of the aspects of the new e-Beat system would be to build relations with the community.
“The idea is to institute an effective and transparent beat patrolling system with centralized monitoring to enhance accountability and performance. The new beat system is expected to help us increase police visibility in public places,” said the lady CP.
She added – “It will also monitor criminals and their movement with public cooperation, increase safety of women in public etc. Additionally, the effort would help in improving police response time since the beat police can quickly reach emergency spots.”
According to the Gurugram CP, police personnel work extremely hard, “but there is a need to work smart” by making optimal use of technology.
“We had started the process of crime-mapping last month in order to identify hot spots, i.e., crime-prone areas in the different zones of Gurugram, especially with respect to crimes against property like vehicle thefts, burglary, snatchings, etc.” added Kala Ramachandran.
Additionally, she said, Geo mapping will now be done of ATMs, banks, courts, residential areas, Schools, Bus stands, public assembly areas, important CCTV points, and other priority places of all police stations sector wise. “Following this, we shall decide on the beat points and routes of the police beats,” she added.
She further elaborated that these beat points would be visited twice every 24 hrs by the police riders deputed on the beat. Centralised software-based monitoring on a real-time basis will assist in evaluation of the performance of each beat constable.
