JORHAT, April 13: Dial 100, the first of its kind project in Jorhat district, was formally launched by Jorhat Police on Monday when the Superintendent of Police, Amanjeet Kaur, in presence of Additiol Superintendent of Police (Head Quarter & Security) Ripul Das and Santanu Dutta, started the service by dialing the number 100 at a press meet held in the SP office.

Addressing media persons, the SP said, “Any person in distress and where police intervention is required, can immediately dial the number 100 which will be received by the staff of the Dial 100 project in Guwahati and will be immediately reverted back to one of the five patrolling vehicles depending on the person’s location. These vehicles are equipped with GPS technology which will be handled by dedicated police staff already trained by instructors of the Dial 100 project.”

The SP further said, “The main motive of the launch is to provide quick response to a citizen in distress and to improve policing. It is a 24-hour service and two out of the total five vehicles will be positioned at Titabor and Teok. This will be effective because any citizen who might not have the phone numbers of the Officer-in-Charge of the various police stations need not necessarily wait till the next day to go to the police station to report a crime, accident, fire or any other emergency. The service is for instant help.”

The launch of the Dial 100 service, in line with the 108 Emergency Ambulance service is being perceived as a preemptive bid to keep crime at bay and a Rongali Bihu gift to the people of Jorhat by the district police.
