Pune: Maharashtra’s Director General of Police Rajnish Seth informed that 2800 CCTVs will soon be installed at 1000 new places to monitor crime as well as streamline the traffic. Currently, there are 1400 CCTVs already operational in the city. He also added that the local shopkeepers must have CCTVs facing the streets and these CCTVs will be connected to the police control room.
Seth gave all this information while interacting with journalists at a press conference where Police Commissioner Ritesh Kumar & Additional Police Commissioner Sandeep Karnik were also present.
Seth further added that along with Pune city, the state will prosper when new businesses will start in Maharashtra. Hence, along with maintaining law and order, Pune police is taking all kinds of efforts to create an environment of trust among entrepreneurs.
Rajnish Seth further said, “If anyone harasses entrepreneurs in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad, they should report it to the police. So, the number of criminals who harass entrepreneurs needlessly can be reduced.”
Apart from these, the DGP also stressed upon the deteriorating condition of some police colonies in the city. They will be repaired with the help of the Public Works Department. Also, new colonies will be created through the Maharashtra Police Housing Corporation. Houses will be built in the premises of the new police stations itself.
