Keeping the public safe has always been the most important task of the country. Different kinds of incidents happen almost every day and usually, they are not reported correctly to the intended department. The main departments in the country are (1) law enforcement, (2) fire department, and (3) emergency medical services. This paper presents several improvements for selected research studies in order to make the three departments well-connected and suitable for public areas. Indoor GPS helps in locating specific incidents' area inside buildings, this helps in saving the time and effort to assist any incident. Saving lives is an important aspect to maintain a healthy and safe environment where an immediate health care is provided to the injured which increases their chances to heal faster. Also, improved fire detection and controlling system helps in eliminating the danger and damage to other's property. Further, we should engage the citizens in the incident reporting process via providing user-friendly applications, arranging awareness campaigns, and adopting new technologies to make devices intelligent enough so they won't need a human controller.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
