Agra Smart City Private Limited has launched the first panic button in the city at Soor Sadan crossing on Wednesday for rapid assistance in the case of emergencies.
ASCL aims to install a total of 43 panic buttons in the city within a month. These red buttons are connected to the smart city command and control centre to offer immediate help in the case of emergencies. The command centre would alert the nearby police station for rapid action.
ASCL e-governance expert Shashank Agarwal said, "The panic button will be very beneficial for citizens in the case of an emergency like theft, crime or traffic jam. It will also play a crucial role in ensuring women’s safety."
In a workshop organised for police personnel on Wednesday, Agarwal taught them how the mechanism of the panic buttons, CCTV cameras installed at major crossings, advanced traffic lights and other components of the Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS) work.
Sources said that 128 computers have been provided to various police stations across the city to remain connected with the command and control centre. Police would also have access to the live CCTV footage on their computers.
Under the smart city project, 1,216 CCTV cameras would be installed across the city. While major roundabouts and intersections have been covered in the first phase, the remaining work is pending.
