BHUBANESWAR: The Modern Police Control Room set up by the Commissionerate police in Bhubaneswar has established itself as the first-point for information and assistance sought by the denizens. A whopping 42,263 calls were received by the control room in December, Commissioner BK Sharma on Tuesday revealed at the review meeting.

 The calls were for various purposes from obtaining information to assistance by distressed people to seeking immediate attendance during accidents and crime. The PCR vans under the control room shifted as many as 264 injured to the hospitals in December.

 They also took the lead in providing succour to the homeless destitutes at the peak winter cold last month by picking them and sheltering them in different short stay homes or other facilities. The vans provided night shelters to around 175 people when mercury plummetted to the lowest last month.

 The control room was also flooded with calls relating to the Indian Science Congress here.

As many as 200 calls were received by people seeking information on the congress, people attending it and also directions on how to approach and access the venue, sources said.
