City Cops get four more patrolling vehicles

  • Total eight vehicles to attend complaints in a speedy way
  • Dial Emergency Response Support System No. 112

Mysore/Mysuru: Response of Police vehicles patrolling various parts of the city including the Highway will be speedier henceforth, with the Police rushing to one’s distress call in the Mysuru City Police Commissionerate limits in just a couple of minutes.

Those in need can call single emergency No. 112, the Emergency Response Support System (ERSS).

In an attempt to curb crimes including robberies, accidents, clashes and also incidents of chain-snatching, the Mysuru City Police has recently acquired four additional high-tech vehicles, bringing the total number of vehicles dedicated to monitoring the Outer Ring Road (ORR) to eight.

The vehicles were inducted into service by the City Police Commissioner Ramesh Banoth on June 16 at the City Armed Reserve (CAR) grounds and they have started functioning from this morning.

These patrol vehicles have been deployed for surveillance along the 42.3 km Ring Road, which has become a hub for over-speeding, crime and illegal activities.

The arrival of four more vehicles assumes significance as the Mysuru city limits are growing with the addition of newer areas along the Ring Road. Moreover, there are plans to construct the Peripheral Ring Road that will circumambulate the Ring Road.

Ramesh Banoth told Star of Mysore that the vehicles have been deployed for surveillance — to promote a people-friendly environment — along the Ring Road and both civil and traffic personnel have been assigned to duty. “The vehicles will aid in effective policing and patrolling and our main intention is to strengthen the Police beat in city limits,” he said.

Vehicles will also patrol strategic locations across the city instead of constantly patrolling the Ring Road and will reach the spot, say if an accident occurs, in less than a few minutes. The vehicles will operate irrespective of jurisdiction. However, old PCR vehicles will also be in use.

The vehicles have been fully customised and equipped with specialised surveillance, communication and monitoring equipment to respond to emergencies. They are designed to patrol and prevent crimes on Highways, ensuring the safety and security of commuters. They have advanced monitoring, control and communication systems.

These vehicles can send live feeds to the Control Room at the Office of the Police Commissioner and also to the jurisdictional Police Stations where head Police officials will be able to keep an eye on the movements.

The patrol teams will conduct regular patrols to identify individuals exhibiting suspicious behaviour and prevent illegal activities, clashes, gambling and other criminal incidents.

Overall, this system and the dedicated team of trained personnel aim to swiftly respond to public emergencies, maintain law and order and address potential threats.

    These days, Mysore has become the hub of smuggled gold distribution activties. The 10-lane Mysore-Bangalore highway is a massive opportunities for the distribution of the smuggled gold focusingthe btowns in this corridor, as well as the Hawaala money operations.
    The ring road thas become an important road for the Keralite criminals who use Audis or BMWs to ferry their goods-the smuggled gold from Kerala, which arrive through the Wayanad-Najangud route to Mysore.
    These flimsy police vehicles are no mtach for the powerful Audis and BMWs the Kerala criminals use.
    Besides, these criminals dressed well as gentlemen, bribe the top police officers in Mysore, and hence are untouchable. They are the main traffic, as also their collegues who operate the Hawaal money scam activities. They have taken over the ring road.
    The gold is smuggled into Kerala from the UAE,, by a network of criminals, who are deployed by the Keralite businessmen residing in the UAE. They met Modi last year in the UAE, and feted him. Modi agreed non-stop UAE-Mysore flights when the Mysore airport is ready to receive the A320/Boeing 737 jassenger jets. These businessmen then start smuggling gold into Mysore so that it can be distributed through the Mysore-Bangalore highway.
    As prelimin ary to the full-blown distribution runs, the current operations above, are in place. They have purchased houses, lands and even constructing warehouses near the Mysore airport.
