Police commissioner of Mangalore, under emergency response support system(ERSS), launches a single emergency number-112, on December 14th. The police commissioner of Mangalore informed the media that this system of single emergency number ‘112’ to get services from Police , Fire(101) and disaster management services resembles the USA’s system.
The public can avail the service of police at 112 instead of 100. The accessibility of this service is far and help arrives at its quickest. The service works such a way that the nearest vehicle rushes to the crisis spot. Also one can avail this service 24/7 with its staff working in shifts.
The program took off with flagging off 19 Sagara patrol vehicles which became a part of this Emergency Response System. Ultimately this system will respond timely to any Emergencies. Over time this system will also undergo improvements in quality and response gradually for better tomorrow for us, says the Commissioner of Mangalore.
