News : Akhilesh to Lay Foundation of Dial 100 Building
Lucknow, India, Dec 18, 2015 -- Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will lay the foundation stone of the building which will house a modern police emergency response system (ERS) on Saturday. Coming up in Gomtinagar Extension, the building will house the call centre which will have 4,800 police vehicles at its disposal across the state to reach out to any SOS call on dial 100 within 10 to 15 minutes. Cabinet nod to the cell is likely on Friday.
The state government has allotted 8 acres of land for the facility (plot number 7/13) near Shaheed Path for the building which, apart from call center, will also house a training center for the personnel who will be trained for attending calls and dealing with emergency situations in terms of dispatching police and emergency assistance.
With 300 communication officers to receive distress calls from all over the state and 200 dispatch officers to rush police help, the country's centralized 'Dial 100' police control call center will also extend help at time of medical emergencies.
The facility which is slated to be functional by December 2016, will have police personnel and police vehicles in addition to the district police force, to reach the site of any emergency within 15 minutes of the call being made to the police control room.
