Several helpline numbers and official numbers are under operation for the people to make distress calls or when they require any help. However, in a report by Hindu, it was reported that the Delhi Police will soon appoint a third party to conduct an audit of its helpline numbers. This is to assess the quality of services they offer to address public grievances.
Besides the response and reaction time of the PCR and various police stations, the audit will also assess how Delhi Police personnel in the Capital deal with people who make distress calls or require any help.
