With just four days to go for the Commonwealth Games, the Delhi Police is getting technical assistance from the Indian Army, Navy and the Air Force by borrowing radar vehicles that are integral to its multi-crore Command Control Coordination and Communication Centre (C4i).
“We have requisitioned one such vehicle from the IAF and another is expected from the Navy. A number of them have also been hired from private suppliers,” said Karnal Singh, joint commissioner of police (northern range).
These radar vehicles will be the relay points for the transmission of audio-visual media from both competition venues as well as non-competition sites.
“These vans will be stationed outside games locations where adequate media infrastructure is already in place. Whatever media has been captured by the CCTV cameras and other paraphernalia installed inside these venues will be transferred in real time to these vans, which will directly transmit it to the C4i Centre located at the Delhi Police Headquarters,” Singh said.
Constructed at a cost of R15.39 crore, the C4i Centre is equipped with three 32-inch LCD screens and two 46-inch LCD screens. In all, a total of 88 screens have been installed at the Centre to help the police keep an eye on the entire city.
To ensure coordination between all, an official from all the agencies concerned will be positioned at the C4i Centre.
Sources said 10 such radar vehicles would be acquired in the run-up to the Games.
