    "The 'report offence' and 'traffic violation' keys are functionalities that enable the user to capture and report offences and traffic violations in a structured manner. If a user at any time witnesses anyone breaking the law or any irregularities within the state, the user can compile a report comprising an image or video evidence of the offence," the statement said.

    "In addition, the user can record a narration of the events, and add the locational details of the offence. All this can be done in offline mode and saved for further alteration or can be directly sent to Goa police for processing," it further said.
