Delhi Police taking initiatives to improve police-public relations: SN Shrivastava

Delhi Police Commissioner SN Shrivastava said that we try to redress every grievance of the public, adding that it improves police-public relations. It is also important that whatever police can do, put them in front of the people, so that they can take advantage of them, he further said. "Recently we observed Delhi Police Week. During that period we sent about 12 such vehicles in the area, which we call public relations vehicles. There was also a vehicle named Probodhi of economic offence wing and two traffic vehicles. The job of these vehicles was to increase public relations with citizens."

Delhi Police's new scheme lets anyone file online complaint: Police Commissioner

While recently speaking to the media, Delhi Police Commissioner SN Shrivastava highlighted the efforts being made by his team to efficiently handle crime and complaints during the pandemic. "As soon as the pandemic broke out in March last year, we came up with a scheme under which a complainant could contact any senior police official, including me, through a video call. This also ensured that social distancing norms were followed. I would regularly talk to complainants. And now, we have come up with another scheme 'Integrated Complaint Management System' under which anyone can get his complaint filed online. We upload it in the same system so that every complaint comes into the system and is redressed. We aim to improve this scheme further in coming times," Shrivastava explained.
