Taking another step for making India Digital, today we will discuss how we can make crime records digital and how Unique ID project will help do so.
We have seen that our central database will have a table of all people of India each assigned a unique ID. The table will have records of criminals too. You might wonder why a criminal will opt for unique ID, but police may create and assign unique ID behalf of them for better management.
To store crime information the system will have two more tables, crime table and crime code table. The crime table will contain crime records. Each FIR will add a new row in this table. Each row will have unique IDs of criminals involved in that crime.
The crime code table will hold all Indian Penal Codes (IPC). Whenever a crime happens a new row will be added to crime table. In future, when similar crime happens in the same region the cops will be able to find the suspects by a single click. For example, in riots police will be able to find doubtful people performing a single query.
Also, in a case of theft, when CCTV is not available, unknown suspects can be cancelled out by a few queries. It will not only help in solving cases faster, but also will help reducing crime as in most of the cases police will be around the clues.
The database will be on national unique ID server that will be accessed from everywhere. Because of this communication gap between interstate police will be reduced resulting in faster tracing of criminals.
