  13. AI-Driven Sentiment Analysis for Community Policing
  14. Build a sentiment analysis tool that monitors social media and local news for public sentiment regarding law enforcement. The system should help identify community concerns and public sentiment trends
  15. Predictive Policing for mapping of crime and criminals
  16. Develop a space and time-mapping system which will co-relate repetitive crime incidents, criminal patterns & track repeat offenders, by integrating data from various sources and utilizing data analytics to track various crime incidents over space and time. It will provide useful insights into crime mapping that can help in implementing preventive measures accordingly. It can also ensure efficient monitoring of repeat offenders
