The Pimpri Chinchwad Police aims at starting division wise helplines under the title, ‘Police Samaritan.’ The initiative is conceived by Pimpri Chinchwad Police Commissioner Krishna Prakash and Mahasetu Solutions LLP, Global Human Organisation, which will be operational from May 17, 2021. 

How will the Helpline benefit citizens ? 
1. This helpline will not only work in helping people but citizens might also give information about people roaming without any valid reason, or any other pandemic related issues. 
2. If citizens find any Covid19 positive patient roaming without mask, not following the Covid appropriate behaviour, in such case citizens can contact us. Information regarding Establishments / shops which are running beyond their time limit / not following the Covid19 health protocols can be shared with us. 
3. Also, over charging for services such as ambulance, or illegal selling of vital injections such as Remdesivir, or Tocilizumab or any other important issue regarding Covid19 can be informed to us directly.
4. Fake RTPCR negative test reports or Rapid Antigen Test reports issued by any laboratory should be informed immediately on the helpline. Further investigation and action can be taken against such persons / entities.

5. Incase, an entire family is contracted with Covid19 and are under home isolation and cannot seek help for medicines, essential items. This issue can also be resolved by us, by directly calling on our helpline numbers. Pimpri Chinchwad Police can definitely arrange help in such conditions. 

This initiative is the brainchild of Pimpri Chinchwad Police Commissioner Krishna Prakash who sought help of more than 100 volunteers to create the concept and implement it. 

Speaking about the initiative, Krishna Prakash said, “Our control room gets numerous calls for COVID-related issues. This is why dedicated helpline numbers are being circulated for citizens to contact. Private volunteers have been brought on board to help us with the same.”

The helplines will be officially launched on May 15. 
Citizens can contact on 8010430007, 8010810007, 8010460007 and 8010830007.
