Staging for the launch of the Telangana Police Command Control Center


The Telangana Police Integrated Command Control Center (ICCC) is ready for inauguration on Thursday. Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao will join senior state police officers to open the gigantic multi-agency operations center.

An iconic landmark and center of excellence for some, surveillance giant and predictive policing nerve center for others, the ICCC was conceptualized as part of the modernization of the police force after the formation of Telangana.

By November 2015, Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao had laid the foundation for the center, which had an estimated initial budget of ₹300 crore. The construction was entrusted to the Shapoorji Pallonji Group while the technological consultation and digital solutions were provided by L&T Infotech and other multinational groups.

Telangana Chief Police Officer, Mr Mahender Reddy, who is known for championing the potential of technology in policing, earlier said that the ICCC was a network of command centers: “A CCTV in a street linked to the police station, which is integrated with the commissioner, then the ICCC. Monitoring any situation anywhere in the state and guiding action is possible from the center. »

A ‘Center of Excellence’, it is unique as it integrates the functions of various police wings and departments, and their back-end technologies, into the Technology Fusion Center housed across 15 floors of Tower B. Three floors of the E-tower are dedicated to command control and the data center. The new address of Hyderabad City Police Station will be Tower A, comprising 20 floors. All of its operations will be transferred and carried out from there shortly.

Towers C and D are equipped with a press and training center and a three-level auditorium that can accommodate 480 people.

Are visitors allowed?

Visitors can access the Telangana Police Museum, a 360-degree viewing gallery located on the 14th and 15th floors, with an admission ticket. A collection of memorabilia, the museum celebrates Telangana’s daily police.

A green structure

With a built-up area of ​​4.26 lakh square feet and additional parking for 600 four-wheelers and 350 two-wheelers, the entire structure is a “green building”, according to officials.

Following sustainable building practices, such as no use of wood, an all-glass facade to let in natural light and reduce energy consumption by 50%, ICCC also generates 0.5MW of energy thanks to its solar panels. Approximately 35% of the total area is marked for planting and the facility is also equipped with an environmentally friendly sewage treatment plant.

A helipad on one of the towers for emergency operations is the icing on the cake.
