kTo prevent burglaries in locked residencies, the Coimbatore rural police on Friday launched a mobile app named “Sako ” ( Safe Kovai) to monitor locked houses.
The application which was developed by Sri Ramakrishna Engineering College in collaboration with the Coimbatore District Police was launched at the District Police Office. The mobile application is currently available in English and its Tamil version is likely to be developed soon.
The SP said the district police have already engaged private firms to provide CCTV and alarm devices on a daily rental to avoid break-ins. He also told the media persons that the residents of the districts shall download the “Sako” app and register their addresses, upload the photographs of their houses and enter the period during which the house would remain locked.
In their absence, the police will visit the locked houses during the day and night, click photographs and upload them on the app for the residence to check from elsewhere. With over 20 lakh residents living within the Coimbatore District Police limits, with this app, the sharing of details had been made easier and the police personnel during night patrol would be provided with tablets to track these houses, said Superintendent of Police A.Selvanagarathinam after launching the app.
It’s appreciable that the police initiated to reduce theft cases in the city. People also should be responsible and careful.
