BHUBANESWAR: Police stations in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack will now have dedicated cellphone numbers as the Commissionerate of Police (CP) on Wednesday introduced ‘Closed User Group (CUG)’ for senior officials.

Under the CUG system, specific mobile numbers have been allotted in police stations which will get relayed to new officers during reshuffling or fresh appointments.

Inspectors-in-charge (IICs) of all police stations in the Twin-City have been directed to use these mobile numbers which are easy to remember and displayed on CP website for the public access.

“The system is yet another initiative towards citizen-friendly policing,” Police Commissioner Dr RP Sharma said.

Earlier, when an IIC got transferred, residents under the jurisdiction of that police station had to face difficulty in fetching the phone number of a new officer. This issue will be addressed by the CUG system as the numbers are retained in the police station, Dr Sharma added.

The Police Commissioner urged the citizens and social workers to make use of the new phone numbers for sharing sensitive information relating to crime, law and order.

BSNL has been roped in for the CUG service. Some of the important numbers which have been circulated by the Police Commissionerate during the launching ceremony are:
