The safety of the citizens is viewed as a top priority by the Hyderabad police as growing crime rates have been gripping the city and causing safety to reduce. In an attempt to improve the safety of Hyderabad, the police have brought back the age-old method Mughals use, which is the ring-the-bell-for justice system to help the people in distress.


This unique ringing system was quite influential for Mughals as it helped people during their troubles and helped in calls for war. The police adopted the current concept with a new twist and are much more advanced than the old model. Also, such distress machines are more often referred to as SOS Machines (Save Our Souls). Police have already installed an SOS pole as such at different points of the city. 


A person who has just been a victim of an accident, robbery, or any other event can find a pole near him, walk into it and press the button. The moment the victim presses the button, help will reach him as soon as possible. The specialty of this device is that it does not require an active internet connection. 


The box has a camera connected to the Police Commissioner. The moment the button has pressed the info with reach the control room and based on the picture and unique number, the social media team will inform the nearest police station to send a dispatch right away. KBR Park and a few other places have this distress box and have been tested to see how efficient it is during rains
