South Africa wants to use tech to drive down its crime rates.

The Gauteng Department of e-Government announced that it had approved R1.7 billion for e-policing in the Gauteng province of South Africa.

Executive council member Mzi Khumalo, the money will be used to procure crime-fighting tech such as drones.

The department is also planning to have CCTV across every major road, business centre and crime hotspot in Gauteng.
