Rajasthan gets digitally-advanced crime control room

Abhay command and control centre

The Rajasthan Government has deployed technologically-advanced Abhay Command and Control Centre to prevent rising crime in the State. As the Central Government has a plan to make smart police stations in India, the recently-launched control centre is a step in this direction.

Abhay was set up by the government with the help of Rajasthan’s IT department and boasts the latest in technology and equipment. The command and control centre is managed with the support of the Department of Information Technology. The centre is billed as a one-stop destination to fight crime comprehensively in the State.

The Jaipur Police can capture high-quality videos, do video surveillance, call recording, vehicle tracking, crowd management, crime detection and monitoring of crime scene. Videos, call records and other data available at the centre could be analysed for identification or tracing criminals, forensic investigation, traffic management, crime detection and control of criminal activities against women. The centre comes with integrated response management system and it helps with mob control. The command centre is connected to 464 CCTV cameras that are installed in some of the busiest streets of Jaipur. Through LCD monitoring, tracking will be conducted through the unit using the latest software.

This is the first among multiple such centres that will be set up in the State. Similar centres in various divisions will all be linked together to the district headquarters in a phased manner starting June.
