VASHI: The Vashi po­lice held a meet­ing with se­nior cit­i­zens and women on Wed­nes­day to cre­ate aware­ness on Ma­ha­rash­tra po­lice mo­bile app ‘Prati­sad’ and gen­eral se­cu­rity. The mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion is for emer­gency re­sponse.

The meet­ing held at Vashi po­lice sta­tion was called by se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Vashi po­lice sta­tion Ajayku­mar Landge.

“Ma­ha­rash­tra Po­lice has de­vel­oped a mo­bile app ‘Prati­sad’ for se­nior cit­i­zens, women and any­one who needs help in emer­gency within the state. The users need to store the mo­bile phone num­bers of their close friends and rel­a­tives and also their lo­cal po­lice sta­tion,” said Landge.

He said, “When­ever some­one needs help in emer­gency, all they have to do is open this App and touch the red coloured ‘So­cial Emer­gency’ but­ton. While the rel­a­tives and friends in the pro­file will get the mes­sage, 10 po­lice of­fi­cials of a po­lice sta­tion within 3-km range of the in­di­vid­ual will also get in­stant mes­sages. A mes­sage will also go to the po­lice con­trol room.”
