The police department has asked the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) to allocate space for setting up more police stations in the city, in accordance with the master plan.
The police force has proposed to set up of at least one police station to cater to every four new sectors to be developed according to the Master Plan 2021. The department has also requested the development authority to get the police station buildings constructed at the planned sites.
The Gurgaon Master Plan 2021, also known as Gurgaon Manesar Urban Complex 2021, which is now being upgraded as Master Plan 2025, has 58 new sectors (sector No. 50-115) earmarked in it.
Gurgaon already has a total of 57 sectors (from sector No. 1 to 57) and it has a total of 23 police stations out of which only 10 are in urban sectors while eight in rural areas.
Gurgaon police commissioner Surjeet Singh Deswal said that one police station would be set up against four sectors in the newly developed sectors from 58 to 115.
Efforts were also being made to have the similar ratio in the sector 1-57.
With more police stations and manpower, the police department would be able to more effectively deal criminal elements, Deswal said at the inauguration of a new police post near SGT Medical College in village Budhera on Friday.
Staff at this post will be deployed soon, the commissioner added.
Deswal said that each sector would also have a dedicated patrolling party and a new police lines complex would be set up at Manesar over an area of 65 acres.
He also underscored the need for modernisation of police facilities and said that Gurgaon police would be equipped with ultramodern facilities in the times to come.
About the Budhera village police post, Deswal said it would help in curbing criminal activities in this area and four to five villages would be attached with the new post.
