Panjim, July 8th 2015:-With the Digital India push, the Goa city police have taken the initiative to create a new responsive website and have implemented two apps, The Goa Police App & Eyewatch police app to provide safety solutions for all citizens, thereby safeguarding several lives over a period of time. Eyewatch has geo-coded the area of jurisdiction and set up an “Eyewatch” emergency response control center (ERCC) in the Goa Police Control Room to complement the existing response team empowering the user, and to get connected with the helpline with just a click of a button. “Eyewatch” will empower the citizens to send immediate alerts, to the police control room enabling Goa police to dispatch a quick response team to the location based on the info provided by the app. The emergency alert, upon being triggered sends out the location of the user and places a call to 100 helpline immediately; simultaneously the alert data will also be shared with their respective chosen guardians (up to 8). The application designed as per the requirements of Goa police have been made available on Android, IOS, Blackberry and Windows platforms.
Unique features of Eyewatch include being the only application in the world today which records audio for up to 60 seconds before the press of the alert button, continuous tracking every 10 minutes, one click activation for entire sequence, utilization of both network location and GPS to pin point location of emergency, and multiple triggers for activating an alert. The app successfully runs on Android, Blackberry, Apple IOS and Symbian (Nokia). Even if the phone is stolen and the sim card is changed, an activated alert will restart it.
The Honorable Chief Minister praised the efforts of the Goa Police to digitalize the communications between the masses and the police by way of these apps and also hoped that it would be instrumental in decreasing response time and dropping the rate of crime.
