The prime duty of my government is to extend security to people and deal sternly with criminals. ~ Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav
Dial 100 is a prompt integrated emergency service of Uttar Pradesh for public security and safety for all; including those with special needs anytime and anywhere. The service has been designed in order to reduce the response time of police and timely intervention.
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has already laid the foundation stone for the ‘Dial 100’ building which will house the world’s biggest modern Police Emergency Response System (PERS). This would be a major step towards improving the law and order in the state.
Dial 100 across Uttar Pradesh from October 02
After modern control rooms established in the Police Stations of Lucknow, Kanpur, Allahabad, and Ghaziabad that showed heartening results in cases of emergency, the ‘Dial-100’ project is being implemented across the state to provide immediate services by the police in both rural and urban areas. The Centralized Master Coordination Centre would be established in Gomtinagar, Lucknow. Akhilesh Yadav has recently directed officials to start the state-wide Dial-100 from October 02, 2016.
Quick Response Time in Urban and Rural areas
Reviewing the status of ‘Dial 100’ services in Lucknow with senior officers, CM Akhilesh Yadav informed that the system would enable police to reach the spot within 10 minutes of the incident in urban areas and within 20 minutes in rural areas. The PERS building will house the call centre having 4,800 police vehicles, and all these vehicles would be equipped with GPS.
Dial 100 Control Room
Dial 100 Control room will comprise of 300 communication officers to receive distress calls from all over the state and 200 dispatch officers to rush for police help. The police control call centre will also extend help at the time of medical emergencies.
This would be the biggest project of the state as well as country for the modernisation of police control system and will commence by ‘Gandhi Jayanti’ this year.
