In order to provide better facilities to the people in Jammu and Kashmir, several important steps are being taken by the police department in the run up to elections.
Several reforms are being made for better accessibility and efficient services to the public within the police stations. For the last few months, the police have started a special programme under the name of ‘Thana Divas’, under which people are being invited to the police station and their problems and disputes are being resolved through understanding. Citizens are quite happy with this initiative, who earlier had to visit police stations for months to resolve even minor cases. Now the first priority of the police is to solve petty crimes and disputes.
On Saturday, the police launched a mobile application to provide round-the-clock assistance to the people in times of emergency, including filing an FIR at the click of a button. Download the JKECop app from the Google Play Store and Apple Store to easily access emergency services. Giving information, reporting traffic violations, seeking emergency assistance, case details, paying challan online, getting character certificate, tenant/PG verification, etc., services are available through this application.
Sources said that 4,257 cameras will be installed at 251 police stations and 88 police posts in Jammu and Kashmir.
Since long, many political and social organisations and civil society have been demanding that CCTV cameras be installed in police stations.
According to official figures, they will have 3,000 outdoor bullet cameras, 1062 indoor dome cameras, 195 outdoor PTZ cameras and audio recording. The resolution of the outdoor camera will be around 1080p and the resolution of the indoor camera will be around 720p. The cameras can store up to 18 months of recording and can record up to seven days even when the Internet is down. According to the officials, this project will be completed within the next three months.
