Smart phone, bike boost to policing and enforcement in Bhubaneswar-Cuttack

Bhubaneswar, August 30, 2017: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday flagged off four traffic interceptors and 30 motorcycles of Commissionerate Police and also gave away smart phone to police officials of senior citizen cell to strengthen policing, quick response and enforcement mechanisms in the twin city of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack.

The Chief Minister also handed over smart phone to each police officer appointed as Nodal and Assistant Nodal officer at each senior citizens cell in order to facilitate prompt response to the appeal of elderly people.

“The motorcycles and smart phones for police personnel will give a boost to Senior Citizen Security Cells in the police stations. They will be able to respond to distress calls by senior citizens immediately and reach them in quick time,” said Patnaik after flagging off the new initiatives at the Commissionerate headquarters.

More than 10,000 senior citizens have been registered with these cells in Twin City.

The availability of traffic interceptors will strengthen enforcement of traffic and road safety rules and will act as a check on over-speeding and rash driving.


“My Government attaches greatest importance to safe and secure environment for our citizens. I have personally directed police administration to ensure rule of law and focus on protection of women, children, senior citizens and weaker sections. They should work towards winning trust of public by promptly attending to their problems and addressing them effectively,” asserted the CM.
