Commissioner of Police,


Society for Cyberabad Security Council (SCSC) is an important player in the Cyberabad ecosystem. The government and industry working together on the SCSC platform brings us closer in recognition of our interconnectedness and in pursuit of our shared goals regarding safety and security

Many individuals and organisations reach out to the police on various issues faced by them. Guided by SCSC, we look into the cases and close them to the satisfaction of the victims. However, our work does not stop there. We discuss the issues and challenges of the society with SCSC and other relevant stakeholders and design interventions to address them.

Some of the impactful interventions include traffic volunteering, Margadarshak program, Project Safe Stay, New hire orientation, security training etc. These interventions resulted in better awareness and preparedness of matters pertaining to safety and security. The impact of coming together for progressive causes builds a better community. I invite all organizations to come forward and join SCSC as part of the private-public partnership to build a better ecosystem.

Our History

Soon after, the Cyberbad Police Commissionerate was set up to look into the safety and security needs of this side of the city. In 2006, in view of the rapid growth of Cyberabad, a collaborative effort by the Industry and Government was ideated to take care of the security & safety interests of this area, supplementing the efforts of the Government. Hence, Society for Cyberabad Security Council was formed.

Cyberabad is now a hub for many industries such as Information Technology, Pharma, Engineering, Health, Hospitality, Finance, Education etc. It also incorporates many townships.
