Police to go hi-tech to serve you better
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.
