Moving in sync with technological advancement, Hyderabad Traffic Police (HTP) will soon procure 100 ‘Body Worn Cameras’ to be used during enforcement work under its ‘Smart Policing’ initiative. “As of now, Traffic cops are using four wearable video cameras on an experimental basis,” Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic), Jitender said. “Orders have been placed for 100 more sophisticated GPRS-enabled body wear cameras. Sub- inspectors (in traffic police) will be using them by March end.” Also Read - Amazon opens its largest campus in Hyderabad, space built over 3 million sq ft area

Meanwhile, payment for a record number of 10,000 pending challans for traffic violations was made on Monday as part of the ‘Cashless Enforcement in Traffic Management’ and fine to the tune of Rs 19 lakh was collected, the senior officer said.

Under the ‘cashless enforcement’ initiative, police have discontinued the practice of collecting cash for traffic ‘challans’ (a receipt for payment) on the spot. Instead, violators are asked to pay penalties online and through other modern modes.

Telangana government has sanctioned Rs 21 crore for modernization of Hyderabad Traffic Police, he said, adding, this amount will be utilized for setting up ‘Automatic Integrated Traffic Management System’.

“The proposed system will focus on stop-line violation, red signal jumping, wrong side movement and detect over- speeding and issue e-challan to the violators,” he said. “Modern signage boards and interceptor vehicles with 360 degree cameras to detect violations are among the new initiatives planned,” he added.

As part of citizen friendly initiatives, only officers above SI rank are authorized to stop vehicles for checking documents during enforcement work, while lower rank officer are only allowed to record traffic violation by using electronic evidence.
