New Delhi: Delhi police will deploy mini drones fitted with night vision cameras to patrol the streets of the capital to make the city safer for women.
After the rape of a 27-year-old finance company executive by an Uber cab driver was reported last week, the police has decided to patrol dark stretches and crime prone areas with the help of drones which will be fitted with night vision thermal imaging cameras, said Press Trust of India.
“With this project, North Delhi will become the first district with complete camera surveillance in Delhi. This would be achieved with the combined range of CCTVs and drones,” the report quoted a senior police official as saying.
Every drone will fly at 200 meters high and will cover an area of three to four kilometers, said the report.
The project will be launched in north district area of the city by next month.
