Mysore/Mysuru: In a bid to bring secure, digital, smart and straightforward patrolling  system, the Mysuru District Police have introduced ‘SUBHAHU e-Beat’, a modernised version of Police e-beat system.

District Minister V. Somanna launched this e-Beat system at the Republic Day celebrations organised by the District Administration at Bannimantap Torch-light Parade Grounds here yesterday.

Mysuru is the third District in the State after Bagalkot and Bengaluru Rural to launch ‘SUBHAHU e-Beat’ patrolling system, developed by SUBHAHU software company based in Bengaluru.

This new e-Beat system, involving a software app, covers a total of 559 Beat Points marked in the District, including 182 in Mysuru Rural Sub-division, 240 in Hunsur Sub-division and 137 in Nanjangud Sub-division.

Every Beat Point is QR code enabled, which records the visit of the Beat Policeman assigned to that point. There is a 20-minute gap between any two Beat Points and the cop on duty cannot rush between two points to complete the visits. This modernised system of e-Beat patrolling is aimed at preventing temple thefts, house burglaries and such other crimes, especially during the night time.

This is an initiative of Mysuru SP C.B. Ryshyanth, who was inspired by the success of this patrolling system when he was the Bagalkot SP earlier. 

The ‘SUBHAHU e-Beat system is believed to eliminate the loopholes in the earlier patrolling system. Along with Beat Points, the cops can add information such as History List, MOB, Rowdy- sheeter etc., to respective beat numbers.

Upon completion of installation, Beat Police will be equipped with Subhahu Guard application and Subhahu Admin for the Police Officers who monitor the ongoing Beat activities. 

Beat Police will have to visit each Beat Point and scan the QR code if it is available, else Beat Police can punch the Beat Point from Beat Book within 20 mtrs radius. Subhahu Guard application can capture the current Date, Time and coordinates of the location and Beat Police arrival and departure timings.

If the beat Police find any suspicious person or object, he can immediately report it to the higher officers.
