Union Home Minister Amit Shah launched three citizen-centric apps by Chandigarh Police on Friday. The launched apps are namely, ‘E-beat book‘, ‘E-Saathi‘ and ‘Emergency response support system‘.

The helpline 112 to the Emergency response support system was also launched for the region.

About the Apps-

  1. E-Beat Book‘ is a web and mobile-based application which designed to ease the
    collection and analysis of the crime-related information on a real-time basis. The information pertaining to criminals will also be updated on the app. It will be linked with CCTNS (Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & systems). For registering any grievances, people can approach “Atal Sehbhagita Kendra“.
  2. E-Saathi‘ app is designed to build a channel of community policing between the police officials and citizens. The app will help people in providing their suggestions to the police authorities.
  3. Emergency response support system‘ is among the major projects of the Home Affairs Ministry under the Nirbhaya Fund. It has been designed to provide computer-aided dispatch relief to the location of a distressed individual. With a single emergency line 112, people can reach out to the authorities in times of need.

Speaking at the launch, Amit Shah also described Beat officers as the cornerstone of Indian police. He congratulated the Chandigarh Police for coming out with such efficient citizen-centric apps. Home Minister said that the need of the hour is to build a SMART policing system. He also said that the public-police interface will be helpful in combating the crimes.

Earlier, Prime Narendra Modi had given a call for building SMART police system during the 49th Directors General/ Inspectors General Annual Conference held at Guwahati on November 30, 2014.
