The first step towards safer communities

Yesterday marked the primary phase of the Safety Devthon, where participants came together to understand challenges and to move towards making our cities and communities safer.

Police officers, from constables to senior inspectors participated in helping them understand how they’re currently using technology to safeguard our communities and workplaces.

The event started with a brainstorming of ideas to improve the way we look at safety for individuals in communities and to list down the current set of challenges we face

This was followed by an extensive tour of the Traffic Control Room

Constable Pasha provided insights into the working of the networked traffic system with centralized remote controlling.

In parallel, others were gathering insights into the working of the Law & Order Control Room.

A few of the participants also headed to Raidurgam police station to understand the working and process in a Police Station.

Later, Avinash Mohanty, IPS, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic), Cyberabad also provided insights into areas of improvement that the participants can take up and work on during the prototyping phase.

Towards the end, participants came back to discuss areas and challenges they’ve identified throughout the tour. They also took the opportunity to form teams with individuals they met at the pre-event.

Teams and individuals will come together this weekend, on November 8–9 to address the identified challenges by create proof of concept prototypes that pave way to safer commnunities.
