The Hyderabad police command and control centre on an eight acre site at Banjara Hills was approved for construction by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday.
Multi storeyed twin towers will be built with all modern facilities for the police force, which would be replicated on the lines of the metropolitan police force in New York and London.
The government had invited building designs from prominent companies across the world. As many as 15 companies had submitted the designs, of which Mr Rao has approved one.

The building plan approved by the Telangana Chief Minister will have twin towers with a built up area of over four lakh sq.feet. While one tower will have 16 floors, the other will have 24 and both these towers will be connected by a bridge.
The Chief Minister said this building will become an ‘iconic structure’ in Hyderabad besides enabling smart policing in the city and state.
There will be a helipad on the top of each of these towers. The towers will have solar roof-top with green energy concept.
The main hall of CCC would be set up in the fourth floor. Besides there will be a 1,000-seat auditorium, huge video walls, landscaping and water fountains around the building.
This apart, a parking facility for about 600 vehicles would be provided in the premises. Mr Rao asked chief secretary, Rajiv Sharma, DGP, Anurag Sharma and city police commissioner Mahender Reddy to study what additional facilities could be required and finalise the design accordingly.
He asked them to invite tenders and launch construction work soon after the design is finalised.
Mr Rao said the CCC would be integrated with one lakh CCTV cameras to be installed in the city, which would help the police department to improve surveillance and maintain law and order efficiently.
The CM said the command and control centre would also be connected with all police head quarters in all the districts for effective monitoring of law and order situation, safety and security of people.
