According to a senior police officer’s statement released on Saturday, it is being said that Gurgaon police is reportedly equipping its traffic policemen with on body cameras. These cameras would be improving road safety measures taken by Traffic Policemen. This step by Gurgaon police is said to be bringing Transparency to the whole police department.
A senior police officer of Gurgaon Police on Saturday stated that the police department is said to be equipping all the traffic policemen with on body cameras. These cameras would be attached to the policeman’s uniform that would capture video and audio recordings of all of the incidents and violations happening on the road. In other words, it will act as a third eye to the police department.
These cameras are said to be imported from United Kingdom and with the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) support from Honda all of this is near to happen soon.
These video cameras would come integrated with powerful and easy to use evidence management software, which will multiply the powers of every Traffic policeman so as that road safety boosts up.
The cameras will not only help reducing road accidents but will also force the citizens to comply with the traffic regulations.
It will make it easy for the police in documenting evidence in case of any road accident and it will also make the traffic police accountable for any mishap if happens which was previously easy to transfer to one other, but now with this new technology implementation even traffic police can’t escape their accountability which is good.
The senior police officer’s statement read as, “The two-inch front-facing color screen camera improves transparency as the public can clearly see that they are being recorded. It also helps the traffic policeman review the recording on the spot and show the traffic violation to the citizen. Weighing less than 150 gram, the cameras allow Full HD (1080p) video recording of up to 10 hours. They are easy to wear and can be clipped on to the uniform.”
The way Gurgaon Government is working towards making it a global city is appreciable as Gurgaon recently announced itself as the first city going to implement “driverless pod taxis in India”.
