Samarth police station in Pune became the first police station in Maharashtra to have a separate control room connected to as many as 150 CCTV cameras. The cameras, installed at important locations under its jurisdiction, were provided by Ganesh Bidkar, leader of the house in Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC).
Pune police commissioner Amitabh Gupta inaugurated the CCTV control room at the Samarth police station on Tuesday, in the presence of PMC commissioner Vikram Kumar and others.
According to a press release, these CCTV cameras were installed at 24 junctions, hospitals, Ganesh Mandals, ATM centres and important crowded places. They have covered about 80 per cent of the jurisdiction of the Samarth police station.
