DGP R.P.Thakur launching the ICOP mobile app developed by the Prakasam IT core team said that the State police will adopt in a big way e-policing initiatives to crack cases of crime and prevent their occurrence more efficiently.
He said that the IT initiatives from each district would be replicated in other districts for best results. Making a power point presentation, Prakasam Superintendent of Police B.Satyayesubabu said that ‘people who hitherto used to hesitate to file a complaint by visiting a police station for various reasons can now download the mobile app by using smart phones and register their complaints online in no time. The can follow the action taken till the complaints are disposed off’. ICOP would be used to counter ‘fake news’ spread on the social media by rumours mongers, issue crime alerts from time to time and also for intelligence sharing by the police personnel said the SP.
