Two days after its launch, the director general of police, Javeed Ahmed, came for a surprise check of Dial 100 project. Last Thursday, 36 new PCR vans were inducted in the city police’s fleet and a substation for attending to PCR calls was also set up for better functioning of emergency response system. This was a part of Dial 100 project launched earlier this year in Lucknow.
“He came here to inspect Dial 100 vehicles. The DGP interacted with the cops to know about their experiences and difficulties in the system. He was satisfied with the feedback,” said Prabal Pratap Singh, superintendent of police (traffic), Gautam Budh Nagar, who is the nodal officer for the project in the district.
Ahmed also roamed around the city in a PCR van of Sector 39 police station to check the efficiency of the new vehicle and the communication systems. IG Meerut zone Ajay Anand, SSP Gautam Budh Nagar Dharmendra Singh, SP traffic Prabal Pratap Singh and all senior officers attended the meeting at Noida police’s control room in Sector 14 A.
“The substation for PCR calls is under process. It will share the load of the unified emergency response system and calls on number 100 from Ghaziabad, Hapur and other nearby districts can be handled from Noida,” said the spokesperson.
In the Dial 100 project, the police have unified the emergency response system and enhanced the number of call attendants and PCR vans in various parts of the state. The emergency number will be connected to a unified call center in Lucknow and from there it will be transferred to the police station concerned.
