With Police Towers, Hyderabad adds another iconic structure


Hyderabad, August 4 (SocialNews.XYZ) Hyderabad added another landmark on Thursday with the inauguration of Telangana State Police’s world-class state-of-the-art integrated command and control centre.

Built at a cost of Rs 600 crore, the iconic building has appeared in the upscale hills of Banjara at the heart of this tech hub whose landscape is already dotted with the gleaming towers of several global IT giants.

With the networking of the operation of various police units under one roof, the facility serves as a nerve center to deal with crises such as public order issues, natural calamities or other disasters.

The center also has a rooftop helipad for emergency operations. It is claimed to be the first facility of its kind in India and is modeled on the lines of command and control centers in New York and Chicago.

Equipped with the latest technologies, the police towers, as the center is also called, will help the police to further improve the surveillance mechanism and reduce the response time across the state. Footage from about 10 lakh CCTV cameras installed across the state can be monitored from this facility.

With a built-up space of 6.42 lakh square feet, the twin towers are 272 feet tall and will also help in multi-agency operations for disaster management.

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao inaugurated the Hyderabad Police Commissioner’s Center and Offices, various police wings and a museum, showcasing Telangana’s police history.

Accompanied by Home Minister Mohammed Mehmood Ali, Director General of Police Mr. Mahender Reddy, Hyderabad Police Commissioner CV Anand, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar and other senior officials, the Chief Minister toured the building and watched a technology demonstration.

The center includes twin towers. Tower A, which is a 20-storey building, houses the Hyderabad City Police Station. Tower B is 15 stories high and served as a “technology fusion tower” with all backups relating to Dial-100. Tower B will also have SHE security, cyber and narcotics, crime branches and an incubation center.

The building, consisting of five blocks, houses rooms for the Chief Minister, the Minister of Interior and the DGP. If necessary, they can monitor the crisis situation from the crisis room and give the necessary instructions to law enforcement and other services.

The building also has a data center equipped with new technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning for analysis in the fight against crimes. The center has a 480-seat auditorium, a media and training center.

Officials not only from the police but also from other government departments can monitor the situation for disaster management.

The building has parking for 600 four-wheeled vehicles and 350 two-wheeled vehicles.

No wooden furniture was used in the centre. Officials said the furniture was made from recycled materials. About 35% of the land has been allocated for planting.

The Police Command and Control Center is a green building. Thanks to the glass facade, natural light allows the building to reduce its energy consumption by 50%. In addition, solar panels will produce up to 0.5 megawatts of electricity.
