The Cyberabad Traffic Police (CTP) has launched eye-worn cameras for the first time in the country. The move comes two years after body worn cameras were introduced for Hyderabad traffic officers.
The Police Commissioner of Cyberabad, C V Anand launched the initiative on June 10 by issuing seven eye worn cameras for Traffic officers that will be used during enforcement work under its Smart Policing Initiative.
The cameras can be worn as goggles and are fixed to the right side of the frame. These can capture pictures as they are seen by the eye of the traffic officer. The cameras can record both audio and video with the help of a 32 GB internal memory that can record up to 21 hours of footage continuously.
Apart from these cameras, traffic police personnel have been handed Kit bags that contain shoe, water bottle, sunglass, nose mask, reflective jacket and rain coat which will help around 1,000 personnel of Cyberabad Police to discharge their duty better and offering relief from the exposure of sun, rain, dust, smoke etc.
The Logical Indian appreciates the efforts by Cyberabad Traffic Police. We hope this initiative will bring a positive change in the functioning of the traffic police.
