Odisha Police To Use AI, Data Analytics And Mobile Computing From Next Year

To improve analysis of crime data and to help investigating officers move on the right track of investigation, the Odisha police have decided to introduce the latest technologies such as artificial intelligence, data analytics and mobile computing in their work from next year.

“We will start using artificial intelligence from next year. The technology will guide investigating officers on procedures of investigation. If any officer commits any procedural mistake, AI will immediately issue an alert. It will help officers make a quick and accurate search of a particular crime’s modus operandi, similarity between offences at different places and details about arrested persons from our digital database,” director-general of police R.P. Sharma said.

As per sources, artificial intelligence enabled a quick scan of the police database and helped identify criminals through faces and photographs, past FIRs, explore links of a criminal with any gang, scan fingerprints and voice samples, and search the name of a criminal involved in different crimes.

“We have made significant strides in the use of IT in 2018 and embarked on an ambitious road map to make Odisha Police one of the leading states in the use of IT in policing. The state government sanctioned Rs 139 crore to implement the road map in five years. Nearly Rs 21 crore has been provided during the current fiscal,” Sharma added.

The DGP has set a deadline of June 2019 for superintendents of police (SPs) to fully implement the paperless initiative in police stations to bring transparency and expedite work.
