Police officials monitoring the newly-inaugurated Technology Fusion Centre at the Hyderabad Police Commissionerate on Wednesday
Hyderabad: Director General of Police M Mahender Reddy on Wednesday inaugurated the Technology Fusion Centre at the City Commissionerate. Addressing the media, Mahender Reddy said, “The Technology Fusion Centre will help the police officers in merging information from detection of crime and criminal data, incidents from the call list of dial-100 and Hawk Eye data, and road accidents. It would help in identifying how many CCTVs are located in different localities, tracking police patrolling vehicles, investigation analysis, traffic enforcement data and social media platforms.”
He further added, “The centre will enable an officer to have all the information about a particular area or an offender on one screen. This in turn will help them to reduce their time while investigating a crime. We are planning to install about 10 lakh CCTV cameras under the three Commissionerates.”
Highlighting the future prospects of Technology Fusion Centre, Mahender Reddy said, “This is just a miniature which has to be set up in all the three Commissionerates and the districts. And these miniatures will be connected to the 20 storied Command Control Room which is going to come up at Banjara Hills Road no 12 by the end of this year.”
“These fusion centres will be testing the technologies which the Command Control Room will have. And the complete data of the Command Control Room would be monitored by the senior officials who can supervise the action taken by the police”, Mahender Reddy said.
When asked how it would sharpen the skills of the police officers, M Mahender Reddy said, “It is a small step which we are taking to deliver uniform services throughout the State and we look forward for more of Intelligence led proactive policing with this.”
