Mumbai Police to be equipped with 1,300 body cameras to capture accurate proofs during emergencies

These cameras will help to record evidence during attacks on, or sucffle with officials or duty.

In a bid to strengthen the pillars of its law enforcement, the Mumbai Police Department will soon be upgraded with 1,300 body cameras which will help to record accurate proofs during attacks on on-duty officials or other such emergencies. As per reports, Mumbai cops were promised such devices two years ago, when the police safety project was first launched.

Cameras for Police Safety

In 2016, a scuffle between on-duty police personnel and two civilians escalated to a point where the policeman succumbed to his wounds. As per reports, the constable asked the accused juvenile to produce his vehicle documents, when he was attacked brutally by him and his brother. This not only filled the entire department with rage but also highlighted the need for safety provisions of the officials who are deployed for civic safety.

Thus, two years ago, the pilot police safety campaign was launched where usage of body cameras was provisioned. Granted only now, these are digital miniature cameras which have been pinned to the uniforms of traffic police. Linked to GPS and WiFi, these cameras can capture high-resolution images in cases of attacks, read reports.

These cameras are going to work both ways. The technology will protect the police officials from unwarranted attacks and will also be beneficial for the city dwellers. No police officer will be able to indulge in corrupt or mal-practices on duty which will further increase road safety. Therefore, these body cameras will keep both law enforcement and citizens under strict watch, making Mumbai roads safe for one and all.
