Jamshedpur: Police stations in the city will be getting a major facelift. The Police administration plan to turn the city into a ‘dream station’. Plans for city police stations are on anvil. Along with Sakchi, Bistupur 10 stations in the district will soon undergo a makeover.
The task of building has been assigned to Police Housing Corporation. In addition to new building rooms, officials room, barracks and rest rooms will also be made in the police stations.
“The idea is to give a total change to the perception of a police station. When constructed, these police stations would look like a officie in appearance and public interface,” said a senior police official.
The project includes providing public utility services at the police station. “This new station will be completely wi-fi enabled and paperless.
It will also be women and children-friendly place. There will be facilities for taking photocopies, making phone calls, recreation area, snack bar and even a play area for children,” said the officer.
“This work was done as part of raising the standards of all police stations in the city limits. We have changed the ambience of the two traffic police stations, as those are the places most frequented by the public. The attempt was to change the depressing atmosphere and make people at ease on reaching the station,” noted an official.
The District Police is gearing up to implement the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System (CCTNS), a Government of India initiative, to keep an integrated track record of criminals in the country. Various modalities to launch the system are being worked out.
In the first phase Sakchi, Bistupur and Mango police stations would be equipped with the hi-tech facility. SSP Akhilesh Jha said that the hardware required for it has arrived in the city. The system is expected to be launched soon.
For CCTNS, the Police are already in the process of compiling records of criminals. A database recording information of criminals about those who are already lodged in jails and facing trial and so on is being prepared.
The database will primarily focus on basic details of criminals, suspects, victims and modus operandi.
