Commissioner of Police, Surat City, Government of Gujarat


“Diamonds are forever” but it may not hold without adequate security. Once a soft target for terror outfits, India’s diamond hub – Surat, is now guarded by 104-CCTV camera network, called ‘Suraksha Setu’, connected to police control centre that not just acts as a deterrent to criminals but has also ensured better traffic management and disaster management services. That’s not the end as the authorities now plan to extend the network to 5,000 cameras, implement facial and automatic number plate recognition system and integrate sensors for checking pollution.
