UP Police Additional Director General (ADG) Law and Order Arun Kumar Friday told mediapersons the two-phase modernisation scheme of the UP police would enable a common man to file a complaint, inform and call police in an emergency through internet.
The UP Police and Reliance GO have signed a memorandum of understanding in this regard.
This internet-enabled control room would be connected through the closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed at strategic locations. The control room would be connected to public convenience centres in the collectorate so that a common man not having internet facility at his residence could lodge a complaint from this centre.
If any complaint is lodged regarding any discrepancy, error or flaw, it could be detected at any level and the guilty officer would be punished. This technological advancement will help the police to maintain law and order, added the ADG.
The ADG was here in the city to review the law and order and communal situation in western Uttar Pradesh in a meeting with senior police officers of Meerut, Saharanpur, Moradabad and Aligarh zones.
To cope with the situation, the state government plans to recruit 36,000 constables for which a gazette notification has been issued in newspapers.
Till then, deployment of forces up to the village-level was reviewed in this meeting and orders have been given to supervisory officers to ensure deployment of forces to check rumours and ensure proper monitoring.
