One more Traffic Investigation Wing police station for city
Announcements by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa at a conference of IAS and IPS officers have brought many benefits to Coimbatore police.
City Police Commissioner A.K. Viswanathan said needs were prioritised and placed before the Government.
A police official welcomed the decision to provide the city with one more Traffic Investigation Wing (TIW) police station, two heavy tow-away vehicles, buildings for three police stations and two quarters for the Deputy Commissioners.
At present, Coimbatore City with 15 police stations spread over four sub-divisions was has only one TIW unit to investigate all accident cases.
Three police stations that are either functioning from rented buildings or in cramped spaces will get new buildings.
Coimbatore City has four DCPs for Law and Order, Crime, Traffic and Headquarters (besides DCP – Armed Reserve), there was only one quarters so far.
The sanction of two more quarters will be a boon in accommodating these officers.
Coimbatore Rural Police have also got their share of benefits from the Chief Minister’s announcement, with the sanctioning of a new building complex for District Police Office.
The Chief Minister has also sanctioned a Collectorate complex for Coimbatore.
Coimbatore Rural Police have also got sanction for two Armed Reserve platoons.
Dormitory for police personnel on deployment in Mettuppalayam and an Armed Reserve complex for the rural police sanctioned now were some of the long-pending demands of the police.
