Speaking on the occasion, Rao said: "For the last six and a half years, there has been a stable government. But, in order to achieve economic stability, we need new investment coming into the state. For that, we need good law and order to attract investments."
He said that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao took some key decisions in the initials days of coming into power and allocated Rs 280 crore to improve police machinery and infrastructure.
"Various Government Departments work in solos. There is no coordination between them. As a result, there is wastage of public money as each other may work unknowingly against the common interest. The newly inaugurated Telangana State Police Public Safety Integrated Operations Centre will help save a lot of public money paid in the form of taxes," Rao said.
The minister announced that the proposed Hyderabad's own twin towers, the police iconic structure called Command Control Centre, housing an integrated command and control Centre along with others will be ready in two months. The structure is coming up at an investment of Rs 600 crore.
It will be the most iconic building for police anywhere in the world, he said.
According to Director General of Police (DGP) M Mahender Reddy, it will have a gallery for the general public to visit and know police and their operations.
Telangana Home Minister Mahmood Ali said that Telangana Police is India's number one police.
"They are role models to many. They are always at the forefront of embracing technology. Their novel initiatives are being replicated elsewhere... For every 1,000 people living in the city, there are 30 CCTVs available," he said.
DGP Mahender Reddy said the Hyderabad Safe and Smart City Project is conceived with an objective for citizen-friendly, holistic, integrated and responsive CCTV based surveillance system for the cities of Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda and to transform the traffic system from today's technology into a safer, more efficient and demonstrable for the future.
