Polygon powers India police complaint portal, battling corruption
Polygon allows the citizens of Firozabad, Uttarpradesh to register complaints against the police without the worry of it being dismissed or manipulated.
Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal expressed in a series of tweets that the 2.8 million citizens of India's Firozabad district citizens can file a police complaint portal that uses blockchain technology to prevent manipulation.

According to Sandeep Nailwal, the project was very close to his heart because they grew up hearing stories of victims not getting justice due to local police corruption many of who were victims of rape.
