Bhubaneswar: Hailing the mechanism of Odisha police, senior IPS officer Abhay who took charge as the Head of Odisha Police Force at the State Police headquarters in Cuttack today, stressed on increasing the efficiency in implementation of Mo Sarkar and 5T model for better policing apart from improving standard of investigation process.

The 1986-batch IPS officer of Odisha cadre said that he has set six priorities for himself.

2. Odisha Government’s 5T initiative: Based on five parameters—team work, technology, transparency, transformation and time limit (the 5Ts), we will work towards bringing a transformation in the functioning of police department.

3. “Our third priority is to control and prevent offences against weaker section especially the women. A proper investigation would be initiated and deadline set so as to expedite the conviction,” said the DGP.
