Innovation Saskatchewan has launched a competition to develop a high tech way to fight crime in rural areas and some ideas include the use of drones and surveillance cameras.
Innovation Saskatchewan CEO Wes Jickling has set a deadline of October 13th to receive any proposal to fight crime with modern technology.
“The point of the challenge, or the competition, is to really get the researchers and the university and polytechnic students come out with a blank canvas, think big, and give us their best ideas,” Jickling said.
Jickling says a ten-thousand dollar grant has been set aside to develop a prototype to use as a pilot project in a rural municipality.
