Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar–Cuttack Police Commissionerate is a mirror of the State Police and I am glad it has successfully implemented the Mo Sarkar initiative of the State Government, said DGP Abhay during the 12th Foundation Day of the Police Commissionerate on Thursday.
He informed that excellent feedback is being received on implementation of the initiative and asked all personnel of Bhubaneswar–Cuttack Police Commissionerate to maintain such success in future.
"Bhubaneswar–Cuttack Police Commissionerate has been able to create an identity of its own across the State in last 11 years. You have been able to gain the trust of twin city denizens because of your excellent service. I congratulate and thank you for working hard to serve public despite of many challenges," said Abhay.
While asserting that rapid and coordinated responses are major challenges for police in urban areas, the DGP said that steps have been initiated in this regard. Efforts are underway to setup a unified control room and get more PCR vans for Bhubaneswar–Cuttack Police Commissionerate, added Abhay while expecting to establish a more efficient system in coming days.
The State Government is giving priority towards security of women, said the DGP while announcing the scheme for empowerment of women in the twin city. He further advised the women police personnel to create an environment of safety.
Police Commissioner Dr Sudhanshu Sarangi while announcing the new motto of Bhubaneswar–Cuttack Police Commissionerate added that decision has been taken to re-christen the headquarters building as Police Seba Bhawan.
He asserted the Police Commissionerate will soon initiate efforts to deal with organized crime, establish high-quality CCTV camera security system for Bhubaneswar and Cuttack, facial recognition system with help of artificial intelligence and emergency response system.
Sarangi further said that the Police Commissionerate will be more operative in its service towards senior citizens. In view of safety and security of women, the Police Commissionerate launched the "Women Empowerment For Gender Sensitive Policing" programme from today.
Steps are being taken for upgradation of traffic system and proposals have been sent to the State Government to increase police visibility in the Twin city of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack, he added.
