Udaipur Police is set to form social media groups for keeping the law and order situation in the city under control. The initiative has been taken at the behest of new SP Kunwar Rashtradeep.
SHO of all the Police station have been told that all Beat Constables need to form a social media group and enrol about 200 people within his area into the group. This has been done to provide the actual ground situation to people whenever law and order situation goes out of hand and rumours start flowing rampantly.
SP believes that this way Police will be able to connect with around 60k-70k people with the social media groups and whenever condition of law and order situation going out of hand emerges, passing on actual information within the group will help in keeping things under control.
SP has also tightened screw on the policemen on night duty. He has formed 10 social media groups for the 10 Police Stations and he himself is a part of those groups. The groups have been ordered that whosoever is on night patrolling will have to send photograph of the patrolling spot every half hour from 12 midnight till 5 am. This is expected to get all policemen in action and improve the condition of night patrolling.
It may be noted that there are 339 Beats in the district and there are 300 beat constables. The city has police stations at Surajpole, Goverdhan Vilas, Hiran Magri, Hathipole, Surajpole, Dhanmandi, Sukher, Ambamata, Bhupalpura and Ghantaghar.
