These new acts aim to revamp and replace outdated colonial laws in India, focusing on a victim-centric approach and enhancing national and homeland security. Recent reports from the National Crime Record Bureau indicate an increase in cyber and physical crimes. However, with advancements in technology, law enforcement agencies are better equipped to solve crimes. Today, surveillance teams in control rooms can identify detailed information, including the brand of spectacles someone is wearing. This technological shift has revolutionized crime investigation and fire safety, aiding in both prevention and investigation. Integration of cyber and physical security offers a unique opportunity to create a safer India. The knowledge shared at SAFE West India will contribute significantly to our collective efforts.”
