Bhubaneswar: Commissioner of Police YB Khurania said tackling cyber crimes and newer technology used in various crimes will be the biggest challenges for police in 2018.
Speaking on the occasion of 10th anniversary of the Commissionerate Police, Khurania said, "Cyber crime is an evolving crime. Since there has been a spurt in cyber crimes in the recent past, we are trying to educate and train field officers to deal with newer technological challenges and cyber crimes."
The Twin City Commissionerate Police since its inception on January 1, 2008 has faced a lot of challenges on various fronts and successfully overcome those, but there is still a lot more to do, Khurania stated.
He further said, "In an ideal situation, there should be separation of law and order and investigation. For this, we need adequate manpower which we don’t have. But I hope, there will be a separation of both soon."
“In Bhubaneswar, we face various law and order situations. Besides, there is a pressure to complete investigation on time. To help us face the challenges, a large number of sub-inspectors who are under training will join the team in next three to four months,” the Commissioner asserted.
“Traffic is another challenge for us. We will take help of technology in a big way to deal with traffic problems,” he added.
On the achievements of the Commissionerate Police, Khurania stated the police has become more people-oriented to ensure better delivery of various programmes like outreach programme for senior citizens.
"Our dedicated efforts have drastically reduced organised crimes and put criminals and gangsters behind bars,” Khurania added.
