The Telangana police have made efforts towards improving the public access to police services. They have implemented ‘Citizen Friendly’ proactive policing programs. With services like, ‘Dail 100,’ SHE teams, Hawk Eye mobile app, Mee Seva and also through social media, police were able to attend to more public problems. The department received around 12,42,680 calls on their Dial 100/112 numbers.

SHE teams have a major role in protection of women. The teams attended to 4855 complaints from women facing harassment in public areas. Around 567 FIRs were registered, 614 petty cases, 1035 counseling cases and 1228 warnings and let off.

Even the impact of technology was evident in 2020 with 6,65,000 CCTV cameras being installed across the state in this year. The police were able to get evidence and detect around 4490 cases through these cameras.

Some new initiatives like establishment of ‘Public Safety Integrated Operations’ centre at Cyberabad was done. Along with that other centres of excellence (CoE) at each district/Commissionerate headquarters were established.
