Singapore is looking to expand its use of cameras and technology to better support law enforcers and first responders. These include plans to tap sensors, video analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and drones to ease manpower shortages and improve service efficiencies. As it is, the police have deployed almost 90,000 cameras in public locations such as carparks and residential estates across the island. And "many more" will be rolled out in the coming years, according to Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Law K. Shanmugam, who was speaking in parliament Monday. Describing these cameras as "a game-changer" in deterring and investigating crimes, he said the devices had helped the police solve 4,900 cases as of December 2020.
