Hyderabad, Jan 02: The Telangana Police Department on Monday launched a new app TSCOP on similar lines for the policemen across the State and adding a few features to HYDCOP, a mobile phone-based app which enabled the city police in maintaining better coordination.
The main objective of the app is to ensure better collaboration and operational efficiency of the police at all levels in the districts and commissionerates across the State.
Unveiling TSCOP, Telangana in-charge DGP M. Mahender Reddy said that the app has been envisaged to facilitate easy access of critical information 'Anytime, Anywhere' to the police officers in the State through their smartphones and tablets, especially while performing field duties.
Stating that it was time to leapfrog forward, Mr. Reddy said that all the 54 services of the department are integrated into the app. Initially, it will be used by police personnel in Cyberabad and Rachakonda police commissionerates and very soon will be rolled out for policemen in all districts and commissionerates.
Third Eye, which policemen had been using for a long time now, will be useful to identify suspects in an offense by verifying Aadhaar number, voter ID, driving license, vehicle registration or mobile phone number.
They can also verify crime record of suspects against 16,000 court data across the country and real-time jail release information is directly pushed to field officers.
