Rashtriya Raksha University (RRU), a premier institution dedicated to the study of security sciences and law enforcement, has been honored with the prestigious FICCI Smart Policing Award 2022 in New Delhi.
The award recognizes RRU’s exceptional efforts and significant contributions to the field of policing through its innovative initiatives.
The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) Smart Policing Awards are bestowed upon organizations and individuals who have demonstrated outstanding achievements in implementing smart policing practices. These practices encompass the use of Advanced Technologies, Data Analytics, Community Engagement, and other innovative approaches to enhance Public Safety and Security.
RRU has been at the forefront of revolutionizing policing methodologies by integrating cutting-edge technologies and academic research. The university’s commitment to excellence in education, research, and training has enabled it to develop several ground-breaking initiatives that have positively impacted the field of policing.
One such initiative is the implementation of an advanced data analytics system that leverages Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms. This system enables Law Enforcement Agencies to analyze vast amounts of data in real-time, facilitating proactive decision-making and crime prevention strategies. RRU’s data analytics platform has proven instrumental in identifying crime patterns, predicting potential threats, and optimizing resource allocation for effective law enforcement.
Additionally, RRU has pioneered community-oriented policing programmed that foster collaboration between Law Enforcement Agencies and Local Communities. Through these initiatives, the RRU has successfully built trust and strengthened relationships between Police Personnel and Citizens. By actively involving communities in crime prevention efforts, RRU has created a safer environment conducive to sustainable development.
Furthermore, RRU has established specialized training programmed for Law Enforcement Professionals to enhance their skills and knowledge in emerging areas such as Cybercrime Investigation, Counter-Terrorism, and Forensic Sciences. These programmed equip officers with the necessary expertise to tackle evolving challenges in the digital age and ensure the effective administration of justice.
Under the visionary leadership of Professor Bimal Patel, the Vice Chancellor of Rashtriya Raksha University, the institution has been at the forefront of integrating research and training for improved public safety and security, as well as using modern technologies for the better delivery of governance to citizens. This award is a testament to Rashtriya Raksha University’s commitment to enabling law enforcement agencies and synergizing academia and industry to pave the way for India to become ‘Atmanirbhar’ through multiple policing initiatives, in the truest sense.
Prof. (Dr.) Kalpesh H. Wandra, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Rashtriya Raksha University, who was representing Rashtriya Raksha University at the award ceremony, expressed his gratitude for the recognition and stated, “We are honored to receive the FICCI Smart Policing Award 2022. This accolade reaffirms our dedication to fostering innovation and excellence in policing.
