In order to cut down response time in an emergency or crime situation, the city police vehicles will be equipped with global positioning system (GPS). City police K Venkatesham took the decision regarding the upgrade. 

With this technology, the police control room will be able to direct police vehicles nearest to the emergency or crime scene to help the distressed.

Deputy Commissioner of police (Headquarters) Sheshrao Suryawanshi said, “The idea is to reduce the response time from seven minutes now to five minutes.”

The deputy commissioner further informed that the GPS installation process will be undertaken in phases. All 180 beat marshal motorcycles will be equipped with the device in the first phase. There are also plans to increase the number of these motorcycles. In the next phase, control room vans and mobile vans will be upgraded.

The installation process for around 500 police vehicles is aimed to be completed by next month itself. Suryawanshi said, “The installation work will begin from Thursday.”

He further said that the control room will be monitoring the locations of all the vehicles.

Around Rs 50 lakhs have been provided for the project by the state government to the city police.
