The Baaz police squad in Indore, India could soon receive high-tech handsets equipped with GPS technology after a proposal was submitted to police headquarters recently.

Vinay Prakash of Addl SP police headquarters said that a letter was sent stating 500 of these handsets would be provided. It is Paul’s hope these are available to officers in the next two weeks.

Senior police officers are hard at work coming up with a strategy to implement the phones equipped with GPS devices in their department. Paul says the phones will make functions within the Indore police department smoother, as well as changing the way citizens look at police altogether.

It is their hope the GPS-enabled phones will aid Indore police in responding to crimes, and making it easier to catch criminals.

The phones feature much more than GPS capabilities. The phones will bring officers the power to check vehicle registration numbers, track the GPS location of other mobile phones, and more.

The phones allow officers quick access to the RTO database in order to cross-reference registration numbers of vehicles involved in a crime. If it is found that vehicle is registered outside of Indore, the police would be able to get in touch with police in that location within minutes.

What exactly does the Baaz squad do? the Baaz squad allows speedy response to a situation, providing aid to victims and catching suspects after a crime is committed. Basically, they help restore law and order more quickly. Indore has 25 police stations, and each of those stations has at least one Baaz squad. Some of these police stations have two or more Baaz squads, helping police respond more quickly when a crime is reported.

It is certain that these handsets with GPS technology will allow them to be even more efficient in their efforts to keep crime off of the streets.
