Guwahati: Assam police has launched a GIS/ GPS-enabled “dial 100” project to provide faster aid to people in need of police help and improve its functioning.

Initially the service has been started in Guwahati and will be extended across the state in a phased manner.

Dial 100 is an integrated project where at present 26 police vans are connected with the GIS/GPS technology. These vans can be located fast and communicated through very high frequency communication system by the control room to assist people in distress in about 15-16 minutes.

A person in need of police help now can dial 100 and call up police control room and the receiver will automatically find the location of the police van in GIS map and accordingly inform the van nearest to caller and accordingly sent police personnel to meet emergency.

Director General of Assam police JN Chaudhury said, “We hope police-public-technology initiative will help us reduce our response system and enable us prevent crime. We are also installing systems like CCTV and other technology to enhance capacity of functioning of our police forces.”

Started in December 2009, the dial 100 project is being implemented by Inter Act, a US-based company. The police control room is equipped to take 30 calls at a time and 40 people work in four-shifts round-the-clock.
