Kayode Egbetokun, the acting Inspector-general of Police has revealed a smart initiative that would revolutionize the authorities’ response to emergency cases.
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday, Egbtokun unveiled the ‘Police-VGS Quick Emergency Reporting and Response System (QERRS)’, saying this system is bound to enhance the swift and efficient response of police personnel during emergencies.
The Police-VGS QERRS program, according to Egbtokun, has been designed to provide rapid reaction and referral during accidents, natural disasters, medical crises, criminal occurrences, 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 IG is of the opinion that the said initiative would make a great impact in preserving citizens’ lives, fighting crimes and safeguarding 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 IG said and urged the public to embrace the innovation.
