Video footage from across the city will beam at digital video walls, crime data will be accessible at the click of a mouse, and hotlines and wire-less system would help in time of emergency.

This is how Delhi Police would work when the Commonwealth Games are held in the city next year.

Construction of the centre, on the fourth floor of police headquarters at ITO, will be complete soon.

The Central Command Unit, said Delhi Police Commissioner YS Dadwal, would receive live video footage from border points, Games venues and traffic intersections.

“It will be a huge hall with digital walls. There will be 24 cubes. We will receive footage from different stadiums, intersections. All this would real time footage,” said Dadwal.

Dadwal said hotlines and wireless would allow quick deployment of personnel in case of an emergency.

In a bid to enhance security during the Games, the Government has already approved a special project for setting up a state-of-the-art dedicated communication network for Delhi Police.

The network, Cyber Highway, will facilitate implementation of convergence of services like call interception and monitoring system.

The facilities will allow all police stations of the Delhi Police coming under one network leading to easy access of crime and criminal data at the click of a mouse.
