ITWC partnered with the City of Toronto to co-host Technicity on Dec. 3, 2015. The day brought together leadership within the organization of the city, technology leaders, and industry influencers  to discuss both the opportunity and the challenges brought by the Internet of Things to municipalities. We’re featuring a series of interviews we conducted on that day here. You can watch the entire playlist here

Offstage at Technicity, Ritesh Kotak with the research and innovation department at Toronto Police Services (TPS), talks about the work he’s done using mobile apps to improve safety for residents in Toronto. His programs connect residents with the officers assigned to their area, and give them the ability to report crimes digitally.
