JAIPUR: In a bid to make night pa­trolling ef­fec­tive, the di­rec­tor gen­eral of po­lice (DGP) Kapil Garg has pre­pared a strat­egy and passed an or­der to po­lice of­fi­cials. The move comes as a mea­sure to keep night pa­trolling per­son­nel on their toes and to fight crim­i­nal ac­tiv­i­ties after night­fall.

In his or­ders, Garg came down heav­ily on po­lice of­fi­cials for the poor pa­trolling at night. The or­der said, “The ar­range­ments of night pa­trolling are not found ef­fec­tive due to which in­ci­dents like ve­hi­cle theft are ris­ing in the city. The po­lice­men are more fo­cused on just mark­ing their pres­ence. Many a times the duty of­fi­cers are found sleep­ing at night which ren­ders night pa­trolling mean­ing­less.”

Se­nior of­fi­cials of po­lice head­quar­ters have pre­pared a 16-point strat­egy with an aim to make po­lice­men alert at night and also spread a stern mes­sage to un­scrupu­lous el­e­ments. For this, ev­ery po­lice sta­tion would be dis­trib­uted a beat book in which the duty of­fi­cers will make en­try of the places vis­ited and in­spected.

The DGP has also asked the of­fi­cials to take help of cit­i­zens, in­clud­ing watch­man, se­cu­rity guards, and so­cial or­gan­i­sa­tions to make the pa­trolling ef­fec­tive. The cir­cle in­spec­tors have been asked to iden­tify four spots of their ar­eas such as ATMS, banks, pri­vate hos­pi­tals and place check­ing book­let there. The pa­trolling of­fi­cers pass­ing through this check posts will fill their de­tails in the book­let and sign them.

The of­fice of DGP has di­rected the po­lice of­fi­cers to im­ple­ment the new or­ders by Fe­bru­ary 1.

Along with these new ar­range­ments, Garg has in­structed se­nior po­lice of­fi­cials to take strin­gent ac­tions against the wanted crim­i­nals.

He has di­rected the in­spec­tor gen­er­als(igs) of range, su­perin- ten­dents of po­lice (SPS), com­mis­sion­ers, cir­cle of­fi­cers(cos) and cir­cle in­spec­tors(cis) to iden­tify the wanted crim­i­nals at their ar­eas and take ac­tion against them.

Ac­cord­ing to t he o r der re­leased by the of­fice of DGP on Jan­uary 12, the CIS have been given dead­line of Jan­uary 17 to iden­tify the top 10 hard­core crim­i­nals of their area. Sim­i­larly, the COS have been given dead­line of Jan­uary 22, dis­trict SPS have been given dead­line of Jan­uary 28 and range IGS have been given dead­line of Fe­bru­ary 4 to pre­pare the list and sub­mit it to crime in­ves­ti­ga­tion depart­ment.

To nab the hard­core crim­i­nals at range level, the spe­cial op­er­a­tions group of po­lice will help them.

The po­lice of­fi­cers will also be re­warded if they are suc­cess­ful in ar­rest­ing hard­core crim­i­nals of their ju­ris­dic­tion area. The list of the crim­i­nals will also be made pub­lic on the web­site of po­lice depart­ment, the or­der said.
