Rajanna-Sircilla: For the first time, drone cameras were linked with patrol cars to enhance enforcement and surveillance in the district. Acer, with the support of T-Hub, has taken up it as a pilot project in the district. A drone and operator will be attached to every patrolling vehicle.

All the drones with camera video surveillance will be interlinked with district headquarters command control room from where officers could watch drone visuals as well as location of drones. Moreover, thermal drones have also been used to get clear night visuals.

Explaining about pilot project, Superintendent of Police, Rahul Hegde said police could get visuals and other details from the interior areas where patrolling vehicles and blue colt cops could not reach. They are also planning to link drone cameras to dial 100 service so that the drones could reach the spot after getting information through dial 100. It would help them to enhance surveillance and enforcement successfully, SP said.
