August 1,said the force will follow a “zero-tolerance” policy in cases of harassment of women.

Bassi,who is the Special Commissioner of Police (Administration),will take over after Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar retires on Wednesday.

Speaking to Newsline on Tuesday,Bassi said,“To ensure safety of women would be one of our priorities in the Capital. Areas where women’s safety is a problem and where women are vulnerable shall be identified and a strict policy to deal with such problems will be implemented,” he said.

According to Bassi,one of his top priorities as the police chief would be to motivate personnel to give in their best. “We would mainly focus on three things — prevention and detection of crime,security of the populace,and to ensure that proper law and order is maintained,” he said.

Since Bassi has served as the Special CP (Administration),he has been involved in the process of recruitment. He is well-versed with the problems that officials face on ground. “Our objective is to enhance our capacity for effective policing,” he said.

Bassi said problems like street crime could be reduced by effective positioning of police pickets. “Increased night patrolling,well-positioned pickets and increased visibility of police personnel on Delhi roads will prove to be a deterrent to anti-social elements and would ensure better security,” he said.
