Intelligence-based policing ideal to curb crime: Sarangi

Thursday, 22 August 2019 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Sudhanshu Sarangi, who took charge as the Twin City Commissioner of Police on Wednesday from Satyajit Mohanty, said he would lay stress on intelligence-based policing to curb the rising crime graph in the twin cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.

Sarangi said there are several strategies in policing like community policing, problem solving policing but he believes in intelligence-based policing. 

Giving an example he said, people feel assured when they see a Police Control Room (PCR) van in their area but the personnel in the police van should be able to identify the criminals. That is intelligence-based policing.

He said strong action would be taken against professional crime. For this information should be collected about the criminal syndicates active in the twin city, who are new entrants and who are coming from outside and committing crimes.

If there is no information about them and their whereabouts then it would be groping in the dark.

He said besides, curbing crimes steps would be taken to ensure that life in the city goes in a smooth and disciplined manner. People’s expectation is very high from the police. 

Denizens must have a good and friendly experience with police who is possible if their issues are redressed and strict action is taken against criminals.

The Commissionerate system was set up a decade ago .There is a need for review and steps should be taken accordingly.

Technology should be used more so that people are more benefitted.

“We are committed to utilise technology during crime investigation and prevention since it is a prominent aspect of the 5T formula of  the State Government.

Review of data related to criminals and action taken against them would be conducted on regular basis so that our crime fighting becomes more efficient,” he added.

Steps would be taken to separate investigations of professional and organised crimes from maintaining routine law and order, said Sarangi and sought cooperation people of the twin cities for achieving better results.
