November was the 16th consecutive month in which the district police vehicles recorded the fastest response time in Uttar Pradesh, according to a statement from Gautam Buddh Nagar Police.
Officers said the average response time in the commissariat’s urban areas is five minutes and 18 seconds, while the average response time in rural areas is six minutes and 19 seconds.
On average, 437 calls come in every day, with a total of 13,138 calls in November. These calls are attended by 65 four-wheelers and 50 bicycles, along with six police vehicles (PRVs) manned by women, and another six PRVs on the Eastern Peripheral and Yamuna Expressways.
Police added that three of these calls were declared PRV of the day in the state, including the rescue of an unconscious man, the rescue of two victims of a trucking accident and the arrest of a fuel thief gang.
According to police, PRV personnel will receive 18-day courses in driving these vehicles, along with nine-day refresher courses, with the next scheduled for December 22.
Commissioner Laxmi Singh had previously recognized the need to renew vehicles available for highway patrol along with properly trained personnel to potentially manage higher speed vehicles. The commissioner also met senior officers on Thursday for a briefing on women’s safety, the management of organized crime and road accidents.
