Now, senior officials of UP police will be able to interact with their sub-ordinates at zone, range and districts level more conveniently and effectively after an integrated video conferencing system was made operational at UP 100 headquarters in Lucknow on Thursday.
UP Director General of Police (DGP), OP Singh inaugurated the video conferencing system on Thursday. He also interacted with all the additional director generals (ADG), inspectors general (IG), deputy inspectors general (IG) and district police chiefs and issued directions to maintain peace during Ramzan.
- In wake of recent incidents of theft and robbery in banks, DGP OP Singh, on Thursday, conducted a brainstorming meeting with state heads of different banks to review bank security standards.
- “We discussed over different standards of bank security and security measures to be taken while transferring cash from one place to other. The bank officials were suggested to strengthen their security system using modern gadgets,” the DGP said.
- He added, “The bank officials were also asked to review the security measures at buildings in which banks are operational, especially those located in interior and distant places.”
Till now, the police leaderships’ video conferencing was done through national informatics centres (nic) but now all district police headquarters, offices of all ADGs/IGs zone and IGs/DIGs range had been integrated through independent video conferencing system and top leadership could interact with them round the clock and at very short notice, said the DGP.
“In the first video conferencing held on Thursday, all ADGs, IGs, DIGs and district police chiefs have been directed to review the situation to maintain peace in sensitive districts during Ramzan,” the DGP said.
He also directed the district police chiefs to check preparedness for floods as monsoon was likely to arrive from June 21. He asked them to visit sensitive spots and ensure proper arrangements.
“District police chiefs are asked to rope in local people and NGOs to avert any kind of situation during flood season. They have been directed to constitute flood relief outposts where affected people could approach them and get their immediate help,” he added.
Officials were also asked to outsource divers and swimmers to provide immediate help to flood victims, the DGP said and added that contact numbers of relief teams of PAC as well as drones were circulated in the flood prone districts in advance.
