THE CHANDIGARH Police has strengthened its Lawful Interception and Monitoring System (LIMS), a phone interception system to monitor anti-social elements. The new system is equipped with additional features involving real-time phone interception. The upgraded system has recently been made functional.
UT’s outgoing Inspector General of Police R P Upadhyay talked about the improved version of LIMS during a meet the press programme here on Monday.
“The upgraded system has already been made functional. It will be of great help to the police. Earlier, there was a time lag in the interception but with the newly added features, the interception will be on a real-time basis, which will benefit the technical teams to analyse the information in a better and quicker manner,” Upadhyay told Chandigarh Newsline later.
To strengthen the technical arm of the UT Police, the police shall also be working on to establish a “social media laboratory”. The laboratory, according to Upadhyay, shall help the police in creating awareness among people and send messages to the masses in case of any emergency. “Bangalore and Mumbai police have the social media laboratory. The lab shall also enable police to check activities of anti-social elements on various social networking sites,” he added.
