Chandigarh, Oct 24 (UNI) Punjab DGP NPS Aulakh today directed the Range DIGs to submit comprehensive major city security plans within 15 days.
Presiding over a high level monthly crime review meeting of all ADGPs, IGPs Zonal, Range DIGs and SSPs here, the Punjab Police chief pointed out that to ensure fool proof security in the major cities of the state it becomes imperative to chalk out an efficient security plan comprising installation of ultra modern surveillance system at all the sensitive and vulnerable points.
"With detailed security plan the matter could be taken with Union Ministry of Home Affairs for additional funds under its modernisation plan as Punjab is a border state having a long and sensitive international border," he said.
The DGP also set a deadline of December 31 to ensure registration of all FIRs throughout the state on computers.
Taking a strong exception of misuse of prepaid and pre-activated Sim cards, the DGP asked the field officers to immediately register cases against such users and distributers/retailers, wherever any misuse reported.
Pointing out few recent incidents of involvement of security personnel in crimes, the DGP ordered detailed manpower audit of the force by the end of the month with a specific instruction that the lists of deployment of force should be signed by the SSPs and Commandants of Battalions.
Regarding a 15-day special vehicle check up campaign involving all gazetted officers (GOs) launched in the state, Mr Aulakh appreciated the efforts of field officers and informed that more than 23,000 traffic violation challans issued during the fortnight.
Stressing the need for more purposeful usage of district level police training school, the Punjab police chief said that most of these school have already been upgraded and the remaining would be taken care of during next financial year and the desired result could only be achieved if every single member of the force should under go at least one short term training course in a year.
Emphasising on the need to collect more information, he advised the field officers to fully activate the old Zail (Beat) system besides strengthening of special branches in the districts as it could play a significant role in ensuring effective policing.
Appreciating the Jalandhar and Fatehgarh Sahib police for setting up of a model police station at Shahkot and Amloh with unique facilities and infrastructure, the DGP asked the other district police chiefs to follow the suit and send an officer to visit these police stations to replicate the same model in their respective districts.
