In its bid to keep pace with technological developments in the investigation of crime, the Haryana Police department has decided to spend R300 crore to enhance its infrastructure.
State director general of police RS Dalal said the amount has been taken as a loan from the Housing and Urban Development Corporation (Hudco). He revealed this while inaugurating the State’s first Learner’s Licence Knowledge Test Centre at Faridabad on Monday.
Dalal said a recruitment drive would soon be launched to increase the strength of the force. According to him, he had taken up the strength upgradation issue with the state administration and was hopeful that his request would be considered.
He said a tele-communication service would soon be introduced in the state to check crimes. The project’s cost is R253 crore, he added. He said new police stations would also be set up in all districts for which a survey was being conducted.
There should be a police station for four sectors and each sector should have a police post.
