Trendy Devices That Are Used to Reduce Crimes

3 min read

Technology is improving police work in the 21st century — introducing new solutions to fightback criminals, crime and new categories of crime to fight. For example, more often, police departments all over the country use drone cameras as eyes in the sky. Well, criminals have access to these technologies as well. Some years ago, technology was just evolving, and it wasn’t easy to find out the right thing very hard, but now any new technology can be attained over the night.

The technology has been very fast, from drones to body wear cameras to biometric and facial recognition. We will discuss the best of the trendy devices used by police and agencies to reduce the crime in the town. These are just the most common technologies, but with every day passing, new technology is getting introduced, and upgraded versions are launching.

CCTV:

The most major thing is the CCTV that are the eyes of any law and enforcement agency. They trace any crime and criminal with the help of CCTV footage. No matter if it is a crime of theft, murder or assault on the road, CCTV footages are always helpful. Manchester police solved tens of shop robbery cases with the help of cctv Manchester footage.

Face Recognition

One of the most emerging technologies used by police is facial recognition software. When this technology was introduced, everyone believed it would be used unethically, spying or selling their facial characters online. But, that is not the case now; these cameras and technology are helping a lot to reduce crimes and find criminals.

The main aim of facial recognition software is to help improve safety and security in several instances. Police officers are able to chase and arrest a rape suspect within 24 hours of the attack using this technology. And, because facial recognition is so authentic, the traffic police are also using them to identify criminals.

Robots:

Law and enforcement agencies use many third-generation robots to hear, see and observe things that would be difficult for a normal human. They are helping in the surveillance of the crime scene, collecting the reports of police and communicating the information to and from the places where the police will be at risk. These are artificial intelligence and are able to take decision on their own depending on the situation. China is building AnRobot that will be used to patrol the banks, schools, airports and such other public spaces

Thermal screening:

Thermal screening means the small handy devices that use infrared to detect the heat energy emitted by the human body, animals and any other objects. They show the image of the object according to heat detection. These are used in the darker places where the normal cameras and the human eye can not see. This can even detect under the roof.

In any TV show, you might have seen this device has been used to detect the motion behind the wall to detect the captives or to rescue the operation of firefighters.

Artificial inteligence:

The increase of IoT means more data is generated and is being collected and analysed more than ever before. And that data can be of much value in many cases for law and enforcement agencies. But getting out the information from such massive data is very time-consuming if humans do it. That’s where Ai and Machine learning evolves. Ai can also be used to forecast the next crime place after creating and analysing the algorithms.

Body-worn cameras

We often broke up a fight on the streets, in car accidents and on other unlucky occasions. Even the police, while chasing a suspect, can involve in an action at the scene place but if they have the worn body cameras, that is proof of everything that exactly happened there, who attached you first and what heated the situation.

Drones:

Drone cameras have made everyone’s life so easy. In the past, the simple things that were used to be done with a helicopter, like chasing a fast vehicle from the air and guiding the land force where it was heading, were done with the help of a helicopter and a few men. Now it is simply done with the help of a small drone.
