Putrajaya Corporation and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) today launched the Putrajaya mobile app which features a panic button to enable the user to send an emergency message to police and Putrajaya Corporation enforcers.
Putrajaya Mobile is integrated with Google Maps to search for locations and to access current traffic situations in Putrajaya.
Other information loaded in the Putrajaya Mobile app include the locations of tourist attractions, public facilities, car parks and information on events organised in Putrajaya.
Putrajaya Corporation president Hasim Ismail, when speaking to reporters after launching Putrajaya Mobile at Presint 9 Neighbourhood Complex said the function of the panic button was to assist Putrajaya residents and visitors during an emergency.
“The panic button can be used in 39 locations in Putrajaya. Just press the button and a signal will be sent.
“The picture of the individual who pressed the button will be recorded and sent to the control room. The approach is to control abuse of the function,” he said.
