Ranchi, Sep.1: Chief Minister Raghubar Das said that the distance between police and public should be minimized. Crimes can be controlled through coordination between police and public. The CM said it after inaugurating Jharkhand Police Conclave 2016.
The CM said that criminals should be dealt with strictly and crime should be controlled. Some anti-social elements in the guise of naxalism are trying to challenge law and order in the state. They should not be spared. The security responsibility of 3.29 crore people of the state lies on the police, he said.
Das further said that SPs of all districts should stop illegal sand mining and cutting of trees immediately. Laying stress on strengthening the information network of police, the CM said that people should be taken into faith to get relevant information. �If need arises, local MPs and MLAs should be contacted for help. If a problem comes, they will be helpful,� he said.
He called on the police to prepare earnestly to ensure peaceful Durga Puja and Moharram in the state. Peace committees should be strengthened and communal harmony should be maintained at every cost. SPs should sit with police station officers and encourage them to do good work, he suggested.
Praising control over trafficking, the CM directed DCs and SPs to issue advertisements to provide employment to youths. The poor tribal boys and girls having migrated from the state should be brought back, trained and given opportunity to employ themselves. The middlemen should be identified and action should be taken against them, he said.
The CM ordered to remove old rusting vehicles from police station premises and keep the police stations clean like army premises. Highway patrolling should be strengthened and cars should be kept at a gap of 20 km. Road accident victims should be helped promptly, he said.
Das appealed to the police personnel to remain active on social media so that they can intimate the people about their work. Directing to rein in cyber crime, he said that police should be smart and should also act smartly.
