Delhi Police today launched a mobile application for senior citizens to enable them to reach out to the police quickly in emergency situations. On the occasion of the International Day of Older Persons, the app ‘Delhi Police Senior Citizen’ was launched by Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma in the presence of senior police officials.
It will serve as an aid to the elderly in times of distress or in case of medical emergencies. They will be able to send an SOS through the application that will immediately be transferred to the SHO and beat constable concerned.The application will be available on Google Play Store. While speaking at the event, Jung asked the police to hold awareness camps so that the elderly who are not tech-savvy get to know about the app.
