By our Staff Reporter
GUWAHATI, Dec 31: It makes news – one-third of the police stations (PSs) in Guwahati are landless and to provide them land is the New Year Resolution of the Guwahati Police Commissionerate.
Talking to The Sentinel, Guwahati Police Commissioner Hiren Chandra th said: “Providing lands to police stations and outposts in the city that have no land of their own is very much in our New Year wish list. We’ve even sought land from the Deputy Commissioner for the office of the Guwahati Police Commissionerate. We’ve also sent a proposal to the Department of Home for giving full-fledged police station status to Jalukbari and Udalbakra police outposts. We hope that in the coming year Gitagar police station will be shifted to a spot near Gita Mandir on its own land. Proposals have also been sent for seven barracks, and we also have plans to send similar proposals for seven more barracks in the city in 2018. We’ve sent proposals for vehicles. We need at least 100 more vehicles to make the police stations in the city model ones.”
On providing security apparatus during mega events in the city, th said: “In 2017 Guwahati witnessed many mega events. While putting the security apparatus we’ve got much support from the public. We’re trying our best to be more accountable to public security in the year ahead. We’re set to ratiolize the personnel we’ve under our disposal.” th took this opportunity to wish the people of Assam a happy New Year.
