New Delhi: In a bid to ensure smart policing in the national capital, Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi on Friday said that his force will incorporate all the modern technologies and installing CCTV cameras will be one of its priorities.

Bassi also said Delhi Police is now upgrading its systems at the Central Police Control Room so that all incoming calls received on Telephone No. 100 are simultaneously forwarded to the nearest PCR van and the concerned police station in real time through cyber highway.

He said Delhi Police will be the first police organisation to do so in the country. It will reduce the turnaround time for PCR vans to proceed to the next call in queue. This system will also have the facility of sending SMS to the complainant as well as the concerned SHO through the control room.

The Police Commissioner also said that installation of 3,932 closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras has already been completed at 85 locations including border check posts and courts.

"A large number of CCTV cameras have been installed in the city in past few months. It has also turned out to be very helpful in keeping an eye on unlawful act. Even in the future, tech-based surveillance will remain our top priority,," Bassi said.
