The home secretary of the state Deepak Uprety has assured the Rajasthan High Court of public-friendly working of the police at the police stations and in entire force at large.
Uprety gave this assurance in the high court on Saturday in person during the hearing of a suo motu petition pertaining to the deteriorating law and order situation of Johdpur.
The division bench comprising Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Vineet Kumar Mathur had summoned Uprety with a complete plan to address the deteriorating law and order situation of the city and near by areas.
Uprety told the court that the state government was doing everything possible to restore public faith in the administration in Jodhpur.
When asked about the plan, Uprety told that the state government has planned to initiate both long-term and short-term plans for peace and congenial situation in the city.
“The short term plan included increased effective patrolling, security barriers at key points and public-friendly behaviour in police,” Uprety told the court.
While in the long-term plan, Jodhpur will also have a command and control centre very soon after Jaipur and Kota in order to keep a sharp eye on the criminal activities in the city.
A budget of Rs 25 crores has already been sanctioned, under which 800 cctv cameras will be installed at different points of the city and nearby areas. These cameras will be functional for 24 hours.
