Bachpan Bachao Andolan is a child labor activist who launched a pilot program 15 months prior to match a police database containing photos of all of India’s missing children with another one comprising shots of all the minors living in the country’s childcare institutions. He was able to match over 10,000 kids to their families and is in the process of transporting them back to their families. This momentous undertaking was made possible by facial recognition technology provided by New Delhi’s police.  There are over 300,000 kids missing and it’s too difficult to find them manually, so this technology has been a huge help for India’s police. Finding all these kids in 1.37 billion people has been horrible for the police. India has around 144 cops for every 100,000 people. India has an extremely high crime rate of about 709.1 offenses per 100,000 people in 19 big cities, compared to the national average of 379.3, according to the most recent official figures. Since India added this in 2018 they have added countless cameras and command/control centers in big cities such as Deesa City and Gujarat. One company alone has made around 330,000 cameras all around India. These companies have made India a safer and better place.
