The Acting Inspector-General of Police (I-G), Mr Kayode Egbetokun has unveiled a smart policing initiative to enhance the swift and efficient response of police personnel during emergencies.
Egbetokun who unveiled the `Police-VGS Quick Emergency Reporting and Response System (QERRS)’ on Tuesday in Abuja, said it would revolutionise police response to emergencies.
According to him, the Police-VGS QERRS application has been modelled to ensure prompt response and referral during accidents, natural disasters, medical emergencies, criminal incidents and intelligence sharing.
“With the swipe of a button on a phone, emergency notifications will be sent directly to a dedicated team of police operatives.
“The operatives will ensure a swift, live and coordinated response in the shortest possible time,” he said.
The I-G believed that the initiative would make a huge impact in saving lives, combatting crimes and securing communities.
Egbetokun said that the Police-VGS was an additional option to the already inaugurated C4i-NPF Rescue Me App.
“This represents the epitome of the Nigeria Police commitment to the security and safety of members of the public,” the I-G said and urged the public to embrace the innovation. (NAN)
