Maha Prisons Dept to Use Drones for Surveillance

Pune: The Maharashtra State Prisons Department has decided to use drones to ensure security in prisons and monitor the movements of inmates, a senior official said.

In the first phase, drones will be deployed in 12 prisons — eight central jails, two district jails and two open jails, Additional Director General of Police (Prisons) Amitabh Gupta said on Tuesday.

“They will also be used for night-time surveillance. This will help in getting real-time updates on what is happening within prison premises,” an official release said.
