Technology will help in better policing: New DIG

Visakhapatnam: Technology will help the security forces resolve various issues and implement good practices pertaining to policing, said new deputy inspector general of police (DIG), Visakha Range, Ch Srikanth. The 2002 batch officer took charge of his new post and received the guard of honour from the reserve police personnel at the camp office here on Wednesday.

“I know about the extent of left wing extremism in north Andhra as I have worked as a officer on special duty for anti-naxal operations at Narsipatnam in 2006-07 as well as superintendent of police from 2010,” Srikanth said, adding that there has been many ups and downs in the Maoist movement in all these years and he would take stock of the present scenario and act accordingly.

The new DIG also said he would deliver better services even in the interior parts of Vizag rural, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam with the help of technology. “The I-klick service that received tremendous response in Prakasam district will also be implemented in the range. Cops will register FIRs regarding atrocities, attempt to rape and other crimes as soon as they receive the complaints through I-klick,” he said.

‘I shall also like to introduce finger print recognition to identify thieves and criminals even during night patrolling. With the help of the CSR funds from various companies, we shall purchase equipment that will help the cops identify criminals,” he said, adding that his focus will be to identify the areas with the highest crime rate and accident prone zones.
