Chandigarh Police is counted amongst the best in the country and there’s one more reason to it to affirm its coveted status – SMART & TRANSPARENT POLICING.

Chandigarh cops will now be seen wearing cameras near their chests and shoulders, no bigger than a normal mobile phone. They will be recording on the spot facts in HD quality photographs, sound recording and videos for top cops supervision.

The move will definitely make the policing responsible, vigilant, accountable and the people themselves more cautious in dealing with the police. The whole purpose of these camera is for aiding in investigation, especially during misbehaving incidents at check-posts, protests, accidents and other spots.
