PRAYAGRAJ: In-a-first, as many as 100 cops armed with body-worn cameras will be deployed on Magh Mela campus, Prayagraj railway junction and Civil Lines bus stand for better crowd and traffic management in view of Mauni Amavasya snan on Saturday.
Around 2 crore devotees are expected to take a dip in Sangam on Mauni Amavasya considered auspicious by Hindus.
While 10 cops each armed with body-worn cameras will be stationed at bus station and railway junction, the rest 80 will be deployed at static locations of Magh Mela including entry and exit points.
These cameras will be connected to ICCC (integrated command & control centre) and senior cops sitting there will be monitoring the crowd, do crowd analytics as well as note behavioural changes among policemen and visitors.
These body-worn cameras have internet connectivity through SIM cards. With the help of these body-worn cameras, mela cops would also be able to cover black spots where CCTV cameras are not installed.
Commissioner of police Ramit Sharma told TOI exclusively: “This was the first time when cops armed with body-worn cameras will be deployed at Magh Mela, Prayagraj railway junction and Civil Lines bus stand that would be helpful for better crowd and traffic management during Mauni Amavasya snan.” With the help of these body-worn cameras, mela cops would also be able to cover black spots where CCTV cameras are not installed.
“These body-worn cameras are helpful for high quality audio and video recording, digitize the faces, high-level tracking and monitoring and meta data generation (metadata contains personal and transactional information of the user, device and the movements taking place. Also, consists of data related to the date, time, duration and location of the recorded activities),” he said. Moreover, while facing network congestion or poor connectivity, the facility of docking stations in each police circle will help cops to export videos or data collected to ICCC server
