IMG_1720

Robots that are mini autonomous police cars paired with companion drones and facial-recognition technology will begin patrolling the streets of Dubai by the end of the year to help identify and track suspects. These robots can navigate on their own using machine-learning algorithms, but police can control them remotely from behind a computer dashboard. By 2030, Dubai plans for robots to make up 25 percent of its police force. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/06/30/meet-the-newest-recruits-of-dubais-police-force-robo-cars-with-facial-recognition-tech/?

New tool to stop illegal fishing

IMG_1670

CSIRO has developed a world first web-based reporting tool that alerts authorities when offending vessels arrive in port. Countries will be able to sign-up to receive notifications, or directly access the portal, to search for vessels and then be provided with a report which highlights the suspicious behaviours involved so they can reverse the tide of illegal fishing and help rebuild depleted fish stocks. Illegal fishing is the third most lucrative crime in the world, after weapons trafficking and drug smuggling. https://www.csiro.au/en/News/News-releases/2017/Science-tackles-illegal-fishing?

Keeping young people out of jail

Strong Tomorrow Client at the Youth Hub

In March 2015, nearly 75% of young people in detention in WA were identified as Aboriginal. Strong Tomorrow is an intensive mentoring and case management program for young offenders that Save the Children has been delivering since 2014 in Armadale (in metropolitan Perth) and since 2015 in Kununurra (in the Kimberley) which both have high rates of crime. It’s targeted at young offenders aged 10-17 and aims to reduce rates of offending which initial results indicate it has. The cost of this program compares very favourably with the cost of keeping a young person in detention at approx $300,000 per annum.
