MYSURU:  Mysuru citizens no longer need to go all the way to the police station to register a complaint about their lost mobile phone, laptop or documents like passport, to get the acknowledgement necessary for duplication. 

The Mysuru Police Commissionerate on Thursday launched a novel initiative under which such complaints can be registered  online and the acknowledgment downloaded. Police Commissioner B Dayanand said citizens can lodge complaints by going to the website www.mysorecitypolice.gov.in.

This will be applicable only to documents and electronic devices lost within Mysuru city limits. However, complainants will not be able to use the acknowledgment thus received in civil or criminal cases.

Dayanand said the system will be a big help for tourists who lose their belongings in the city.

Keeping an Eye

The city police have also introduced a concept called “public eye” in WhatsApp to allow citizens to send pictures, videos and audio recordings on traffic violations, anti-social elements, misbehaviour by taxi or autorickshaw drivers and charging of excess fare, through the messaging platform.

The message should include details like the place and type of violation/crime. In response, the police will take necessary action and the informant will be kept in the loop.

Dayanand expressed confidence that this would allow citizens to easily notify the police on traffic violations and crime. He said the social media cell in his office handles the WhatsApp tool.
