Pune Police to use Sapience Buddy mobile app for ‘Smart’ and ‘Visible’ Policing

Pune, India, January 24, 2017:

Sapience Analytics and Pune Police today jointly announced the launch of a unique mobile based application to facilitate the drive for  ‘Smart’ and ‘Visible’  police force.

Sapience Buddy is an intelligent and automated mobile app that that discovers the travel time and route taken by the user. When installed on each beat marshal’s mobile, it provides insights on the effectiveness of the current beat system. Sapience provides a daily operational report on the total time, distance covered, and halts taken in each beat circle. Another facility is a visual display of the route and locations on a background map for all beats. This enables officers to make adjustments for adequate coverage of all important areas. In case of any untoward incident, the location of beat marshals can be ascertained immediately. Each beat marshal can view how his/her beat is progressing on the mobile app.

“Our police force puts in very long hours and works diligently for ensuring the safety of citizens. In our campaign for ‘Smart’ and ‘Visible’ policing, technologies like Sapience provide the foundation to both recognize the hard work and maximize the impact of this effort.” said Ms. Rashmi Shukla, Pune Commissioner of Police.

Deepak Sakore, DCP of Police (Cyber and Economics), noted that “we have started at a few police stations who volunteered, and will expand as we gain experience and get positive feedback.”

“We are excited to partner with the Pune Police in this unique endeavour. There are a number of other innovative ideas that we hope to implement with their support. We are certain that with the effective use of Sapience, the police force will become even better equipped to enhance the safety and security of our citizens. Hopefully, this is just the first step in expanding Sapience to other cities and more areas of governance,” said Madhukar Bhatia, Sapience Co-founder and CTO.
