Chairman's Desk

Dear Friends,

It is my pleasure to acknowledge significant contributions made by the Society for Cyberabad Security Council to combat safety & security threats and criminal activities in Cyberabad IT corridor. After Abhaya incident, Cyberabad Police has taken an initiative of "Cyberabad IT Corridor Policing" and introduced a "5 Pronged Integrated IT Corridor Safety and Security Plan".

 The following are the 5-pronged plan:

 PHASE-1 : INCREASED PUBLIC TRANSPORT

A joint survey was done by Cyberabad Police, TSRTC, TSIIC, and SCSC in IT corridor to ascertain the public movement in IT corridor where it was estimated that more than 10,000 Autos/Cabs operate everyday and more than 40,000 passengers travel everyday by Auto/Cabs. Based on the study, the following actions were to taken to improve the Public Transport in IT Corridor.

⇒ 40 new buses with 326 trips were operational at a frequency of every 10min.

⇒ Most of these shuttles were introduced in new routes where passenger traffic is high.

PHASE-2 : CONTROL OVER PRIVATE TRANSPORT

Private transport registration process is introduced to combat threat to women safety where vehicle owner and driver are neccessarily registered with the Police by submitting the documents relate to Owner, Vehicle and Driver. An adhesive sticker with vehicle details would be pasted on the front and back of each vehicle to have a better control on the vehicle movement. An Owner and Driver ID cards would be issued by Police to be displayed inside the vehicle for easy access to the passengers. A QR code is generated on every Sticker and IDs where the information in QR code can be scanned through any smart phone.

PHASE-3 : ENHANCED VISIBLE POLICING

9 new Police check posts have been started at critical entry and exit locations. Each check post will be manned by 1 Head Constable and 2 Constables. 80 police personnel allotted for IT corridor Policing. Also, an Inspector, IT corridor has been posted for better administration and control of the corridor. IT companies such as iLabs, IT Raheja, IV Tech and Vlue Labs have thankfully contributed to this initiative.

The check posts locations are: Inorbit Mall; Mind Space; N Convention; Kothaguda; IIIT Junction; Delloit, Nanakramguda; Q City, Varun Motors and Lanco Hills.

PHASE-4 : ESTABLISHING SECURITY SYSTEM

A CCTV Video surveillance system with 47 high definition megapixel camera was already initiated with an investment of approx. Rs. 4 crores from Cyberabad Security Council. The plan is to add more than 150 cameras with "Night Vision" facility. 

PHASE-5 : EDUCATION CAMPAIGN

Education and awareness program based films with duration of 1,2, and 5 minutes. This helps to educate women about their safety and security. These films will be featured in all theaters. These programs would be featured regularly on social media/FM Radio and through posters and Pamphlets.

We have also started other initiatives to increase the visibility of Police; streamlining traffic and and they are:

⇒ Agressive drive to increase the Cyberabad Security Council membership drive resulted in 70 new members registered in addition to existing 80 members. 

⇒ Getting sufficient manpower to Traffic police in Cyberabad to provide more visible and vibrant services. 

⇒ Around 1200 drunk and drive cases were booked in Cyberabad limits as compared to 200 in Hyderabad limits.

⇒ Getting required funds from Department to take up many pending issues at Commissionerate including Office upgrade, Visitor Halls etc., 

⇒ Taking TOFFEE to the next level by making it acceptable in Hyderabad Police Department.

 

I wish that the joint effort of Cyberabad Police and all the members of the SCSC will strengthen each other in turning Cyberabad into a 'Safe City'.

 

With Warm regards, 

C.V. Anand, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Cyberabad
