Artificial intelligence and drones are useful for transforming Indian policing in 2022
AI can be a powerful tool for law enforcement and help in addressing many types of crimes. It can help law enforcement to optimize their resources in specific areas and at specific times, to cover as much ground as possible with the same or even fewer resources. Drones with sensors, for instance, can also be used to detect illegal movements such as illegal border crossings, human traffickers, and vessels illegally fishing. Location is a powerful piece of information for AI systems. In India too, artificial intelligence tools are increasingly being put to use. The police department’s use of technology is not just limited to facial recognition. It has also been using tools for predictive policing such as crime mapping, analytics, and predictive system, a predictive system that analyses data from past and current phone calls to police hotlines to predict the time and nature of criminal activities in hotspots across the city.
When the respondents were asked about the lack of an Indian police force, the majority of them i.e. 45.8% of 251 respondents, voted for “relationship between police and the public” as the key factor lacking in the Indian police force. Out of the total, 27.1% respondents selected “police accountability”. 13.5% of the total respondents selected “overburdened force and vacancies”, while 11.5% think the process involved in “investigation of crime” is a lacking factor for the Indian police. The remaining 2.1% think it’s the “infrastructure” where Indian police lack.

There are numerous solutions for the Indian police force that can make it better. From the survey, it is observed that 63% of 251 respondents think that “limiting the political executive’s power of superintendence over police forces” will be the best solution for the Indian police force. 15.2% responded to the “specialized investigating units” as the key solution to the Indian police force. 11.6% of the respondents selected the “Community policing model” while the rest 10.2% selected “Outsourcing and redistributing functions” as the best solution for the Indian police force.

From the survey, it is found that 56% of the total respondents think that AI cops must be given a chance over the regular police force, 29.2% think that AI cops may be given a chance, while the remaining 14.6% think that AI cops should not be given a chance over the regular police force.
