Police Chiefs Of Six Metros Meet Up To Discuss Proposals


Bangalore: Over 500 surveillance cameras will be fitted across the city, and monitored from an advanced dedicated control room. Eyes peeled, they will wait for the unexpected to happen — like a terror attack.
The cameras will be part of the Rs 500-crore central package to six metros to counter a terror attack. Bangalore’s proposal includes the control room and surveillance cameras.
These measures were part of discussions that took place on Wednesday in the city, where police top brass from six cities held a meeting over the issue. Apart from the control room, the city police is also contemplating a special anti-terror squad, trained and equipped to handle the situation.
Police sources said there would also be a proposal for mobile vehicle bomb detectors and sophisticated arms and ammunition for the trained cadre.
“All these are part of the action plan for the city, thought out by the police to take on the growing terror menace, following the central home ministry’s initiative,’’ the sources added.
Police top brass from Chennai, Hyderabad,
Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Kolkata who had arrived in the city, held a brainstorming session
with officials from the Directorate of Police
Research and Development (DPRD) and Bangalore police. Since the Delhi police will co
ordinate with the central ministry, they did not attend the meeting.
All the metropolitan police chiefs had attended a meeting in Delhi on June 10 this year. The home ministry allocated Rs 500 crore to upgrade and provide all help to these vulnerable cities to tackle terror. Now, the police chiefs have chalked out action plans for their respective cities.
Asked about the action plan for Bangalore, Bidari said the city police will make a formal request to the Union home ministry through the state government and this will be disclosed when the department gets the sanction.
