Hyderabad: City police commissioner CV Anand reviewed the progress of the police command control centre that is coming up in Banjara Hills. On a visit to the centre on Wednesday, he asked officials to expedite the process and keep it ready for its inauguration by the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on March 31.
Anand said that the first-of-its-kind centre in the country is poised to emerge as the city’s third eye in the not too distant future. Such centres exist only in Singapore and New York. The 20-floor structure will serve both as a crisis management center and command control centre apart from housing the Hyderabad police commissioner’s office.
VAK Padmanabha Rao, superintendent engineer, R&B, and his team, along with contractor Shapoorji Vallabhjee representatives explained about the salient features of the four-tower building.
"I inspected the security areas, parking lot, meeting halls and auditoriums, city police office and all its wings, emergency floors, rooms for the chief minister, chief secretary, DGP, and data and command control centres," he said.
Anand has also decided to meet vendors engaged by the agency for execution of various aspects of the project and exhort them to maintain the deadline.
