Drop complaints against cops in box

Drop complaints against cops in box

Bangaloreans can soon drop their grievances, especially those related to policemen demanding bribes and violating norms, in a complaint box to be kept at the police commissioner’s office on Infantry Road. 

Home Minister K J George on Friday directed Police Commissioner M N Reddi to take measures to place the box. “We cannot rule out the possibility of proxy complaints. Hence, senior officers will conduct an inquiry before acting on such complaints,” he said in reply to a question at a public interaction meeting. 

The home minister said Bangalore would have two large yards to park unclaimed vehicles and the ones that were seized. “Traffic police are finding it difficult to maintain such vehicles due to lack of space. We will soon come out with two big yards for East and West traffic divisions. All such vehicles will be parked in those two yards only,” he added. 

George warned police against negligence in their duties on the pretext of lack of sufficient strength. He expressed displeasure over a police inspector giving an excuse on parking issue in JG Nagar area and said that such things would not be tolerated. 

“The government has given vehicles and home guards. It is up to the police officers to use such facilities and address grievances of local residents,” he said.

On issues like junction development and encroachment of pavements, George said he would try to have better coordination with the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) as it deals with such issues. He directed the police chiefs to ensure better coordination from their end.
