New Delhi, April 18: The Delhi Police plans to set up a high-tech control room by December in north Delhi to boost its efficiency by combining the ambulance, fire, and disaster management operations, a senior officer said on Wednesday.
The standard international emergency number 112 launched earlier will further strengthen the Police Control Room (PCR) operations, he said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (PCR) Devendra Arya said: "The Ministry of Home Affairs has sanctioned funds for the high-tech police control room, and Delhi Police has transferred the money to the Public Works Department for civil and electrical works.
"The new PCR will be housed at north Delhi's Haiderpur once all civil works are completed by December 2018. The construction of PCR in two segments is expected to be completed by the PWD by September-end," Arya said.
