After receiving complaints from people that the station house officers were not accessible,Ghaziabad senior superintendent of police Akhil Kumar decided to check for himself. But when he called on the official mobile numbers of several SHOs as a complainant,some did not take the call,some had switched off their phones while others misbehaved and used abusive language.

The SHOs are instructed to attend to complaints on their official mobile phones.

“I received several complaints during public dealing hours that the station house officers were not accessible,and that if they answer a call they use abusive language and refuse to entertain complainants. The official mobile numbers have been given to them to remain in touch with people,” the SSP said.

Now,a warning has been issued against those who ‘failed to recognise the chief’s voice’. “I have warned them that one more complaint against them,and strict action would follow,” Kumar said.
