In a bid to change the image of Delhi Police, commissioner Amulya Patnaik Saturday met over 500 beat constables of Central Range and asked them for suggestions on how to curb crime in the capital. “Showing a presentation, Patnaik said beat constables are crucial in gathering information on any terrorist or criminal activities for security agencies.

To achieve this, he asked them to conduct proper verification of all guesthouses and hotel in areas under the beat,” police sources said. Some of the constables came up with suggestions to clamp down on crime. “A constable said police should start checking DTC buses regularly in order to clamp down on theft cases.

Another constable suggested that apart from checking registers of guest houses and hotels, they should also ask owners to check the credibility of their visitors by calling the numbers they have provided,” sources said. ENS

    Congratulation to the commissioner. At last he has realised that the best input he can get about crimes in a given locality and how to prevent it from people who have got a stake in it. That is the cocal PC not the IPS. It is the PC who is on the job all the time and their insight in to the criminal mind will be enormous not to mention the intelligence that comes their way while on the beat. It is good start time to come all operational matters must be given to the non IPS members of the force while the administrative and supervisory role is done by the IPS, as is the practice in other countries. No where else in the world The direct induction in to higher cadre is practiced. Every one get promoted based on ability not by passing an examination and reading some text books.It is time that we have taken a good look at this outmoded system.

    Make CC cameras mandatory for all business establishments and multi storied buildings and they should be working. Also install your own at all important outlets/junctions. Jaihind
