BHUBANESWAR: City policing has to be in tandem with fast changing technology to reach out to the residents in favourable and timely manner. The police must ensure that crime against women receives zero tolerance, said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik here on Thursday.

Speaking on the Seventh Raising Day celebration of Twin City Police Commissionerate, Naveen said augmentation of manpower, strengthening of PCR system, revamping traffic management and use of technical and electronic gadgets are some of the aspects under active consideration of the State Government to strengthen the Police Commissionerate.

An innovative mobile application having relevant data about the city police like fixed phone numbers and address of police stations, mobile numbers of officers, details of pink auto-rickshaws and senior citizen assistance was launched by Naveen on the occasion. The mobile application can be downloaded from Google Playstore on an android cellphone.

Police Commissioner RP Sharma said basic policing and dealing with property offences have been the priority of the Police Commissionerate.

Despite manpower and infrastructure constraints, the police are committed to maintain law and order and contain crime in the best possible manner. “Several programmes have been implemented and many more are in the pipeline to improve professional and human-centered skills of our personnel,” added Sharma.

There has been an overall improvement in city policing since inception of the Police Commissionerate. The initiatives in controlling organised crime, illegal firearm trading and community policing were appreciable, said Director General of Police Sanjeev Marik while addressing the gathering.

Marik said the response of the police at station levels towards general public needs improvement. “Apathy and indifference prevents people from approaching the police. This attitude must be shunned,” he added.

The Chief Minister felicitated five officers - ACP, Cuttack Trinath Mishra; ACP, OSAP 7th Btn, Prafulla Kumar Singh; ACP, Bhubaneswar Aseem Panda; IIC, Chauliaganj Rashmi Ranjan Mohapatra and Inspector, Special Squad Bhubaneswar Anup Kanungo for their meritorious work. Khandagiri triple murder survivor Runu Behera, journalists Chandan Samantray and Bibhuti Bhushan Das were presented bravery awards and Duryamani Sahani was felicitated as the best pink auto-rickshaw driver on the occasion.
