The third day of collector SP conference witnessed one-on-one interaction between CM Vasundhara Raje and Rajasthan police. Addressing the cops, chief minister Raje advised the vigilant officers of Rajasthan to focus on the root cause of crimes to strengthen internal security. In-depth knowledge of human psychology and human intelligence is required to exercise control on most heinous crimes. Concurrently, the police must emphasize with the victims and make efforts to comfort them.
Major Areas of Concern:
- Poor connectivity with the police force of neighboring nations
- Communal riots
- Illegal smuggling of arms and alcohol
- Crimes against women.
Additional Director General of Crime Mr. Pankaj Kumar Singh delivered a presentation on “Crime Analysis: Challenges and Solutions”. Jaipur Commissioner Mr. Sanjay Agarwal proposed new ideas to improve the existing security system.
The presentation was followed by the chief minister setting goals for the Rajasthan police.
- Keep Police Stations Neat and Tidy
Police warehouses are loaded with ceased vehicles, narcotics, weapons and other items. Quoting the ‘Alwar model’ as an example, the CM advised the police officers to dispose of these items.
- Collaborate with Public to Control Crimes
The best way to control crimes is to raise awareness among public. This way, the aware citizens of Rajasthan can help report suspicious incidents to the police.
- Set Up more Police Control Rooms on the Lines of Abhay Command Control Centers
This March, Jaipur Police inaugurated Rajasthan’s first Abhay Command and Control Centre to reduce the response time of most crimes. The police set up 500 high-tech cams all over the city and linked it to GPS-enabled vans and tracking systems. The centre was furnished with an efficient traffic control & crime management system that sculpted crime-response time to less than 12 minutes.
Considering its positive outcomes, efforts will be made to establish such centers all over Rajasthan.
- Rope in Retired Police Officers and Soldiers in this Drive
Barmer district administration has a “Police Board” comprising of 1500 retired soldiers and cops. The experienced cops on this board help young and inexperienced police officers in solving complicated cases. Similar boards will be set up in remaining districts of the state.
- Adopt Tech-Friendly Approach in Solving Crimes
Appreciating the police for adopting advanced forensic techniques, drones, video conferencing, mobile apps and other smart techniques for solving crimes, the CM proposed them to upgrade their technology.
The meeting concluded with the CM advising police officers to rope in novel ideas, such as high-tech DNA labs, finger printing techniques and all-woman’s police patrol team in every district. It’s likely to boost the efficiency of Rajasthan police.
