A government official said, "Any kind of emergency situation faced by people will be handled from the Worli center promptly." He added the current system at district-level police control room lacked modern technology. The project would help police provide quick and efficient service to people.
The new technology would allow police to respond quickly and connect to emergency response systems through apps, emails, SMS, chats, etc. They can identify the spot where help is required using Global Positioning System (GPS). Police can also trace the caller and get a detailed data analysis of the call. Information received by the state's control rooms would be shared with the Worli center.
