Rajendra Prasad Sharma took over as the new Police Commissioner of Bhubaneswar-Cuttack from Tuesday.

He said his top priority would be to maintain law and order and check increasing crime rate in the twin city. His immediate focus is to ensure peaceful Independence Day celebration in the Capital.

“We are planning to introduce criminal tracking network system (CCTNS) in the city,” he said. This facility will enable better storage, sharing and analysis of information between police stations and State Headquarters. He also added that they are contemplating on devising a method where complaints can be registered online.

The locations where community policing can be undertaken will be identified. Another target of the new Commissioner is to crack down on illegal arms smuggling. “We have already traced the culprits and will begin action against them very soon,” he said.

Prioritising the safety of senior citizens and women, maintaining public order, adequate security for people and property are also under Sharma’s agenda. He also said the department will undertake regular drives for detection and control of crime.
