Now, police stations just a click away

People-friendly move

Delhi Police unveiled an interactive map on Tuesday on its website to help people find the route to the nearest police station.

The map will be available on smart phones soon, said Delhi Police Commissioner B K Gupta.
“It is part of a progressive, innovative and responsive policing policy,” said Gupta.

‘Know Your Police Station’ is a map where people can find details of how to reach a particular police station, about the Station House Officer, and his contact details. This map will also help people in finding out the police station under whose jurisdiction a particular area is covered.

This map was developed in association with Microsoft on the website

The web page also has a feedback provision in which people can provide information about crime-prone areas, any organised crime like gambling or illegal sale of liquor and accident-prone areas.

“It will be optional for the person giving information to disclose his identity. We are only bothered about the information. The feedback will help police in identifying problems in different areas.

This outreach to public is also aimed at getting their active involvement in policing,” Gupta said. The web page will be monitored at the level of police stations and districts.
