A demonstration was held at the Fukuoka Prefectural Police Headquarters in preparation for the nationwide trial of a new system that will send video footage of the scene when a 110 call is made in October. On the 27th, a demonstration was held at the Fukuoka Prefectural Police Headquarters on the assumption that a person who witnessed a traffic accident called 110. When the caller dials 110, the police command center sends a short message to the caller with a URL to connect to the system, depending on the need. The caller’s consent is also required. The police command center staff gives the caller an access code, which activates the camera function and allows the caller to take pictures of the scene. The new system is scheduled to be fully operational on April 1, next year, after a six-month trial period. Source: NHK / National Police Agency
