The Gurugram Police launched an app-based system for police attendance and real-time monitoring of patrolling personnel through E Beat book.
The smart policing E Beat system was launched by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar in Gurugram Police Commissioner office in the presence of Gurugram CP Kala Ramchandran and top brass of Gurugram Police.
The CM flagged off 119 motorcycle police riders connected with it.
CM Khattar said this app-based system has been introduced in Gurugram under the 'Smart Policing Initiative' (SPI) and it will help these policemen to mark their attendance, and in monitoring of their rides. The beat system has been digitised.
The Gurugram Police said that the policemen deployed at the beat used to mark their attendance manually and there was no system for their monitoring. This GIS-based system would enable more effective monitoring and the location of riders can be easily tracked.
The minister said the Gurugram Police has identified 2,056 sensitive locations in the city, which mainly include ATMs, petrol pumps, residences of senior citizens, schools, colleges, religious places, and crime affected areas for monitoring.
This system will be integrated with Emergency Response Support System in the future so that apart from ERV, this rider can also reach for help on the call received on phone number-112 because many times motorcycles reach faster than four-wheeler vehicles.
