Initiative Name: Community Policing Support Centre – Application
Organization: Hyderabad City Police
Community Policing Support Centre, launched in January 2018, is a first-of-its-kind application that embodies community policing as the mode of delivering law and order. By sharing the responsibility of solving problems with community members, safer neighbourhoods can be created through active citizen participation. The application aims to deliver law & order maintenance, crime prevention, traffic regulation amongst other facilities. It identifies frontline police officers as community policing officers (CPO) who regularly interact with the public and are able to respond to problems directly. Features such as feedback collection, data collection, community liaison, monitoring etc. has led to over 15 thousand downloads so far.
The application works on any device that has Windows, Android and iOS based operating systems and has also won two awards – Hawkeye Mobile Application (2016) And Hydcop Mobile Application (2017).
