Commissioner Kumar noted a significant increase in cybercrime cases. In light of the recent officers’ and staff members’ transfers in accordance with election commission guidelines, he emphasized the continued endeavor to appoint tech-savvy individuals with a penchant for cybercrime investigation. In order to improve its capacity for both crime prevention and detection, the police department also plans to purchase advanced softwares.

Commissioner Kumar announced the transfer of constables who have served five years at a single police station or unit, acknowledging that constables are the foundation of the police force.
It has been revealed that a small number of constables and police officers may be covertly aiding unlawful activity. Tough warnings have been given, emphasizing serious penalties for those discovered to be involved. It has been observed that attempts to manipulate situations with police assistance have occurred in land disputes. These kinds of tactics, though, will not be accepted. Charges were brought against both parties in a recent land dispute case after one of them submitted a complaint.
There have been reports of solicitation happening close to bus stops, which has harassed women who are late at night on their way home. Commissioner Kumar assured the public that the Damini Squad would be dispatched to address the matter if they reported such incidents to the police control room (112).
When a person with a criminal history commits a crime, the police officers will face consequences. The relevant police station’s Detection Branch (DB) will be held accountable if a criminal is discovered committing crimes.
