UP police launch crimil tracking app
Ghaziabad, May 1: Uttar Pradesh Police here on Sunday introduced a crimil tracking app which is hoped to offer help, especially to the office going women who commute by auto rickshaws. Launching the app here, Inspector General of Uttar Pradesh Police (Meerut zone) Sujeet Pandey claimed the app is first of its kind in the country.
Stating that the app works offline too, Pandey told media its important feature is that it opens a person’s crimil record on voice sense. If operated online, the police would be able to access data of over a lakh crimils that would be stored in it later stages. Though it is at present being tried as a pilot project in Ghaziabad, it will be introduced in range and in zone, state and the country soon, Pandey said. It is India’s first such app which contains the crimils’ information. The app contains data base, collected from District Crime Record Bureau (DCRB), auto survey, vehicle record from transport department and jail. In a demonstration of the app, Pandey called a crimil’s me loudly over the device as Deepak. Entire crimil record of about 50 individuals med Deepak was soon visible on the screen. Now if police want to zero in on a particular Deepak, a filter provision is given in the app, the IG demonstrated before the media persons. (ians)
