The system would be operational in a few months. Besides, toll-free number (1800-180-2200) and special mobile phone (9216353111) had been provided to cater to their emergent needs and complaints.

Dalal said that police commissionerate system had been established in Gurgaon, one of the fastest growing cities of India, to cater to the needs of the denizens. He said that the police had introduced web-enabled crime information system which would be operational from January 1. This system would immensely help supervisory officers at all levels to closely monitor the progress of investigation of cases .

With a view to ensure faster and smoother flow of information, he said, the band width of wide area network (WAN) had been raised to 2 MB at state headquarters while it had increased from 64 KB to 512 KB at all district headquarters and Madhuban centre. He said that the process of service of summons of policemen and those of public men which was earlier done manually by deputing policemen, had now been switched over to WAN.

With the implementation of WAN, the services of about 800 police personnel had now been utilised for maintaining law and order situation.
