E-beat system, computerisation of all stations being taken

Dakshina Kannada Superintendent of Police S D Sharanappa has said the DK police have taken measures for people-friendly policing along with ushering in greater professionalism in policing. 

Speaking at Meet the Press organised by DK district Journalists Association here, on Tuesday, he said to create awareness on the working style of police department, ‘an open house’ for schoolchildren would be organised shortly.

The schoolchildren will be invited to police stations and will be exposed to functioning of the department, including wireless system, weapons which the police use and so on. 

To bring in transparency in system, computerisation of all police stations have been initiated under Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems of the Centre. With this, FIR, summons warrant, chargesheet and others works have been made online. The FIR can be checked by higher officials online.

The police stations in the State have been linked with all courts of law, from High Court to subordinate courts.  The e-beat system has been introduced to ensure that policemen strictly adhere to rounds allotted to them.

Each station is given 10 readers and 125 tags. The e-beat system will be in force from 11pm to 5 am. The process of getting ISO 9001:2008 certification is in final stage. 
The certification will help in moving towards  professional approach and people-friendly processes.Two rounds of audit have been completed and the final round was expected to be completed within a few days. 

School beat

To bring sense of security among children who walk long distances to reach their houses, Dakshina Kannada police will introduce school beat system.

“We are planning to keep in touch with residents. Two police personnel in each station will be given charge of two to three villages. They should have complete details on village,anti-social elements in the village and keep in touch with atleast 50 community leaders with their phone numbers. They will be the first line source of information when untoward incidents take place,” the SP added.

The police-population ratio in Dakshina Kannada district is 50 for one lakh population. Against an accepted norm of 220 policemen for every lakh population, Dakshina Kannada has 50 policemen for the same population. 

The State average is 130 for every one lakh population. The process of recruiting 50 constables have been completed and the document verification is in progress. The key post of Puttur DSP is lying vacant for the last six months.  

On challenging case he encountered after taking charge, the SP said murder of Pushpavathi in Uppinangady could not cracked. 

“Though identity of the accused in the murder of mother and daughter at Puttur has been ascertained, we could not nab the accused as he is absconding,” he said.
