e-Beat Book System
The physical infrastructure to implement the system like mobile set and SIM cards are in place and they are in the final phase of updating entries like prominent locations, details of religious places, RWAs, details of banks and ATMs in the e-book. The important places will be geo mapped in the e-book that will save time in case of any emergency. The e-beat book will have facial recognition software and dossiers of criminals. The details of the suspects and wanted criminals will be synchronised with the e-book and can be accessed on a real time basis.
At present, if a beat constable nabs any suspect during checking, he needs to take the suspect to the nearest police station and check his records manually. This is a timetaking process. But in case of an e-beat book, with the help of facial recognition software, the details will be accessed on the spot that will increase productivity of the policeman. With the help of mobile service providers, the police will have live location of a caller in distress and it will further reduce their response time.
The e-beat book will be given to each police beat in a police station. For better monitoring, the e-book has been given to divisional officers and SHO. The details of stolen or robbed vehicles will be updated real time and it will flash for all beat constables. A beat constable at a barricade checking can verify any vehicle on the spot. The best feature of the e-beat book is that the beat constable can access the crime data and criminal records on the spot. In case the suspect’s face does not match, the details can be searched with the help of name and father’s name.
