In an attempt to provide smart solutions for the day-to-day problems within the police department and to ensure smooth and effective service delivery to the public, the Aurangabad city police have decided to hold a smart city hackathon inviting talents, especially from the engineering colleges.
Aurangabad police commissioner Nikhil Gupta said: “We are looking for innovations as well as technology in the areas that have a direct impact on the police and the public. The top three impressive ideas, technologies or innovations will be given cash rewards of Rs 50,000, Rs 25,000 and Rs 20,000, respectively.”
Gupta said the evaluation criteria include novelty of the idea, clarity, details in the prescribed format, feasibility, practical application, the scale of impact, user experience and potential for future work
Authorities said the project has been titled ‘Idea Generation Project’, for which the city police are looking for smart solutions in the areas of traffic control management, database management and its use in CCTV footage data, handling of law and order situations, prediction of crime, monitoring and management of police vehicles, identification of criminals and police office task automation.
Participants are open to choose any of the mentioned areas to provide solutions. They may even propose other technology-based solutions that would eventually, ensure effective day-to-day policing.
Authorities have uploaded the pdf of the template on the city police website so that interested applicants can fill up the forms in the prescribed format. A five-slide PPT mentioning the idea, execution and the end result should be there.
City police expect every team to have at least two members and maximum of four members, in addition to a mentor, who could be academicians, industrialists or even police personnel. The last date for registration is February 25, while last date for submission is March 3, said a senior officer.
Following the knock-out rounds, a grand finale of the shortlisted submissions would be held on March 30.
