This is what Shri D.Sivanandan, Mumbai Police Commissioner said in the function for inauguration of One more Help Line 1298 for Mumbai`s Senior Citizens by Nargis Dutt Memorial Charitable Trust on 10-5-10. Mumbai Police has provided 690 Motor Cycles of high speed and 400 vehicles fitted with GIS GPS facility with efficient net work of telephones etc, which enable police to reach the spot within 2 minutes and maximum 7 minutes.

Senior Citizens can also call Police for help for any such emergencies like :

When they urgently require help of Medical Professionals,

When they face situations that involve physical violence or pose a risk to their lives from outsiders or family members,

When they need counseling to quell their feeling of despair & loneliness.

Senior Citizens should get themselves registered on line on www.hamarisuraksha.com or www.mumbaipolice.org or on 1090 or by going to nearer Police Stations. All personal information will be kept confidential. They should also get their domestic servants, security guards of the Society, Milk/Newspaper suppliers etc also registered for better & quicker service by Police.
