Starting today, the entire array of the Delhi Police will be at your service at the click of a button.

An interactive e-initiative on its website, unveiled by the Delhi Police on Tuesday and developed in collaboration with Microsoft, will now help residents chalk out the route to the nearest police station, provide details about officers’ in-charge and even information about an organised crime.

“This is part of our progressive, innovative and responsive policing policy and will soon be available as an application on smart phones,” said Delhi Police Commissioner BK Gupta.

Dubbed the ‘Know Your Police Station’ programme, the web platform will help residents find out the jurisdiction of a particular police station on a GIS map. In addition, those visiting the Delhi Police’s official homepage at www.delhipolice.nic.in

will also be able to access a particular Station House Officer’s (SHO) profile containing his picture and contact details including his mobile phone number.

“There is also a feedback provision in the platform which the public can use to provide information to their SHO about crime-prone areas,” the commissioner said.
