Using latest IT tools and monitoring devices in public places, the hi-tech plan aims to empower policemen with much needed information on criminal activities.

PricewaterhouseCoopers is acting as consultant on various technology plans for a Rs 6-crore fee. The World Bank, is reported to pump in Rs 40 crore. PWC will prepare detailed project reports and requests for proposals, bring in implementation agencies and oversee the implementation, review and improvement of new systems.

To ensure effective policing, the plan has been conceptualized. The most important parts of the system are its Integrated Intelligent Surveillance Systems (IISS), the Automated Traffic Management Systems (ATMS), and the capacity building and upgrading intiatives. The IISS  will need officers to use hand-held personal digital assistant devices. These provide online access, help police to check whether vehicles under inspection is stolen or driven by somebody with a past history of crime.

Currently, 26 markets and five border points in the city has CCTV installations. Ongoing work will push the number of surveillance cameras to 5,333.

Safe City Project will add another 6,625 cameras at 479 locations. The traffic police are expected to install 5,000 CCTV cameras at important intersections, allowing a brigade of  16,928 CCTV cameras in total to secure every nook and corner of the city.
