Addressing the meeting, Rajendra highlighted the importance of investigating agencies in dealing with the crime cases. He said agencies need to further improve their working by adopting latest techniques of investigation. “Cyber Crimes are posing a great challenge to the investigators and we have to sharpen our skills to detect such crimes,” said Rajendra.
The DGP disclosed, “crime control and detection is our prime responsibility and the investigating agencies have to put in place coordinated efforts to bring the culprits to justice and conclude the cases on merits.”
“The criminals, with the changing scenario, are using different strategies and modes of crime. It is the need of time that the investigators improve their proficiency and strengthen investigation methods on modern lines,” he added.
Rajendra, deliberating on the consequences of social evils, said, “such evils lead to grave crimes giving a daunting task for the law enforcement agencies.”
“JKP have already taken various initiatives to spread awareness among the youth about bad effects of drug abuse. We have established drug de-edition centres at Srinagar and Jammu where a number of affected youth have been treated, besides counselling by the experts,” he said. “We are continuously focusing on the subject to eradicate the menace which is destroying energies of our future generation. The efforts are yielding good results.”
Discussing traffic management in the State, Rajendra called for effective monitoring and supervision for bringing visible changes in the working of traffic police. He said that flow of surface traffic has been on alarming rise which has doubled the responsibility of traffic police. “Besides penalizing the violators, all stakeholders should coordinate in bringing visible improvements in the system on ground,” Rajendra added.
The DGP stressed on people’s cooperation and awareness about various rules and responsibilities to achieve desired results in professional policing.
He said that cooperation is of vital importance in crime detection and adherence of rules at all levels. He said that awareness about the role of the citizens in crime detection, traffic management and bad effects of drug abuse should be highlighted by organizing public interaction programmes at various levels.
