How Internet of Things (IoT) can prevent crimes

Crimes are increasing day by day and we need to develop a system to prevent crimes very soon to ensure peaceful and safe environment on The earth for our next generation.

We have to develop a technological innovation to crime prevention and policing. First of all I tell you I am a biggest fan of science-fiction movies like “Iron Man” motive is to tell this so you can understand me better. I was 17, when I first watched a Hollywood movie ‘The Demolition Man’ and I wondered to see that how easily cops catch the criminals in that movie.

Police system was amazing, I am not reviewing that movie here, but I am giving an example to make you understand better, that how we can develope such an environment where no one can do crime, and if someone dare to do then the cops will identify who did it, and then will find him in next few minutes. You are thinking I’m gone mad, but its possible through Internet of Things technology.

IoT Technology has all the answers which people can ask. We all know Alon Musk. Nobody thought earlier that the Rocket Technology could be reusable in future? But Alon Musk made it possible through advanced technology. I want to clear that I am not an expert and I don’t have any technology but I have an idea. So, to know how crimes can be prevented, you must aware of my idea, which is totally based on science-fiction movies and mixing of Advanced Technology.

Defining Criminals

Who criminals are, why do they commit an offence (In order to define ways of preventing criminal), how do they think, what do they do (in order to predict their future actions and assist investigation in catching offenders). Andrews & Bonta, 1998 offered four general definitions of criminal behavior that will fit all the types of it. These four areas include the following types of act:

  1. Prohibited by law and are punished by the state
  2. Considered to be violation moral or religious code and is believed to be punishable by a Supreme Spiritual being such as God.
  3. Violate norms of society or traditions and are believed to be punishable by community.
  4. Acts causing serious psychological stress or mental damage to a victim, but is somewhat affordable for offender (referred as “Psychological criminal behavior” ).

Causes Of Criminal Behavior

Nowadays the psychologists and criminalists agree that what drives a person to criminal behavior is really complex and complicated mechanism, involving a lot of factors.

We can imagine a child, who was born in a “criminal” family (mother is schizopreniac, father is rapist and murderer) but after he got an education and a job there is nothing antisocial in his behaviors. It proves that solely genetics can’t determine one’s inclination to the criminal.

So, it is impossible to predict a person’s “criminality” according to some specific factors, but we can still highlight some circumstances and apply a person to a “relatively higher criminal risk group”.

  • Financial problems, or starvation – this is especially common problem in third world countries. When a person has to struggle every day just to get food to survive, the probability that they become thieves is high.
  • Low social status – when one is bullied because of it, they may easily become aggressors and fight back against the whole society.
  • Genetics – some genetical mental disorders, itself, includes increased aggression.
  • Etc.

Causes Of Crimes – Criminal Behaviour & thinking

The causes of crime are complex. Most people today accept that poverty, parental neglect, low self-esteem, alcohol and drug abuse are all connected in explaining why people commit crimes. What is the common motive behind these crimes? The desire for sense gratification. Some people are simply at greater risk of becoming offenders because of the circumstances into which they are born. Criminologists and social scientists have almost completely overlooked the fact that materialism is the root cause of crime.

False identification of the body as the self leads people to believe that sense enjoyment will satisfy them; and most crimes are directly or indirectly connected to the attempt to find satisfaction in sense enjoyment.

There are many motives of crimes, but there is single reason behind at the crime scene; Criminals thinking, yes! A criminal thought no one watching him and police never be able to find him. Thats it.

If we could set his mind that he is being watched and never escape from police then there is 90% chances, people will avoid doing crime. How to make them understand that they are being watched?

How The Technology Can Prevent and Reduce Crime


First of all government has to inject a very small microchip in the body of every citizen.

Microchip, stop crimes, crime prevention

Every mobile phone should have a Emergency button like volume and power button, there should not need to call emergency number. Because victim don’t get much time to call emergency, but victim can press emergency button easily in less time. It would be time saving and easily accessible.


The process is so simple, as victim press the emergency button, the mobile phone of victim will collects data from all available microchips around specific area (for example: 1 kilometer radius).

Then mobile sends collected data to the nearest police station without losing any moment. As police receive that data, they will activate, and start finding the victim by received location to save her/his life. Then they can easily find the criminal next few minutes because they have their identity.

Advantages of this technology is, police can not arrest innocent people.

Victims mobile be able to collect data including, microchip holder details, name, profession, microchip ID which should be connected to his Aadhar Card. GPS location of crime scene.

May be, Government is not able to proceed this innovation based of microchip technology, but I am 100% sure! this is the only way to prevent crime and violence like rape, murder, attacking, hit and run case. Surely this technology will take place in near future, after 40 or 50 years or may be after 90 years later.

If you have any questions and doubts please comment below, I will try to answer them. Thank you.
