In a bid to be­come more ac­ces­si­ble to cit­i­zens, the state’s po­lice force has de­vised a 10-point tech­no­log­i­cal over­haul. High­lights in­clude mo­bile apps — to help you find the near­est po­lice sta­tion or know your rights — and an easyto-use new web­site.

The po­lice also plan to stan­dard­ised such mo­bile apps and the web­site for the whole state. “Cur­rently, dif­fer­ent city po­lice com­mis­sion­er­ates have their own apps for cit­i­zen ser­vices. Un­der the new ini­tia­tive, we will be able to in­tro­duce one stan­dard app for the whole state by choos­ing the best of the lot. Sim­i­larly, a com­mon web­site for all com­mis­sion­er­ates and the dis­trict po­lice force will en­sure uni­for­mity in terms of treat­ing crimes,” said an of­fi­cer.

Three con­sul­tancy firms — KPMG, PWC and Earnst and Young — made pre­sen­ta­tions to a panel headed by ad­di­tional chief sec­re­tary KP Bak­shi, last week.
