COPS SEEK AUTO DRIVERS’ HELP TO CURB CRIMES
NAVI MUMBAI: Alarmed by the increasing instances of chain snatching, robbery, theft and burglary, the Kamothe police in a meeting on Sunday sought cooperation from auto drivers to curb crimes.
Around 70 drivers from the area participated in the awareness meeting where various ways to prevent such crimes were discussed in detail. “We want to increase vigilance in the city for the safety of the residents. We are seeking cooperation from auto drivers. It always helps when people from all walks of life work as our ears and eyes,” a police officer explained.
“The rickshaw drivers ferry people throughout the day, and they are familiar with many local residents of a specific area. So, they can learn easily when some suspicious people come to the city for the first time,” said Mamata D’souza, senior police inspector of the Kamothe police station.
