Delhi Police inducts additional ‘PRAKHAR’ vans to control street crime

New Delhi, Oct 30 (ANI): Amulya Patnaik, Commissioner of Delhi Police, recently flagged off 15 more ‘PRAKHAR’ vans to curb street crime in the national capital. These street crime patrol vans are in addition to the already operational 15 ‘PRAKHAR’ vans launched in September. These vans have been tasked especially to curb street crimes as well as crimes against women in the vulnerable areas. These vans are specially designed and equipped with the latest gadgets for quick transmission of information about any incident related to street crime. Each ‘PRAKHAR’ van is also equipped with Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) with inbuilt GPS besides the wireless set. The Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) immediately transmits the call related to street crimes as soon as it is received in Command Room to the concerned nearest ‘PRAKHAR’ MPV for immediate action. This has reduced the response time considerably as the information is immediately displayed on the screen of the MDT with all details including that of the distress caller. These Patrol vans with their round-the-clock and dominating presence in the area have an apparent deterrent effect on the criminals especially robbers, snatchers and eve-teasers.
