NEW DELHI: The Delhi Po­lice has ini­ti­ated a pi­lot project in 30 po­lice sta­tions in the na­tional cap­i­tal to study the fea­si­bil­ity of sep­a­rat­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion and law and or­der.

San­jay Singh, the Spe­cial Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice (Head­quar­ters and Re­cruit­ment), said the pi­lot project set­ting up sep­a­rate in­ves­ti­ga­tion wings has been ini­ti­ated in 30 po­lice sta­tions in the first phase.

“This step shall en­sure spe­cial­i­sa­tion as well as im­prove po­lice re­sponse to the vic­tims and fam­i­lies af­fected by crime, es­pe­cially in heinous cases,” he said.

As many as 1,409 teams con­sist­ing of one sub-in­spec­tor, one head con­sta­ble and one con­sta­ble (4,227 per­son­nel in to­tal) have been con­sti­tuted and al­lo­cated to two po­lice each in 15 po­lice dis­tricts, said an­other of­fi­cer.

The pi­lot project was started in mid-septem­ber and un­der this project po­lice per­son­nel tasked with in­ves­ti­ga­tion have been given lap­tops and are en­gaged in law and or­der du­ties, apart from big events like the new year eve, the Repub­lic Day, he added.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion team staffers have been trained and equipped with le­gal, foren­sic, sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal aids.

The ob­jec­tives of this are to im­prove qual­ity of in­ves­ti­ga­tion, en­sure timely dis­posal of cases, im­prove con­vic­tion rate and en­sure co-or­di­na­tion with prose­cut­ing agency for speedy trial, the of­fi­cer added.

He said this al­lows more time for in­ves­ti­gat­ing teams to probe cases, pre­pare chargesheets and “we have seen that there has been a speedy dis­posal of cases”. › This step shall en­sure spe­cial­i­sa­tion as well as im­prove po­lice re­sponse to the vic­tims and fam­i­lies af­fected by crime, es­pe­cially in heinous cases.
