The State police will soon introduce Crime Control Tracking (CCT) system which will help to bring down the crime rate, said Director General of Police (DGP) V. Dinesh Reddy.
Mr. Reddy visited Sri Valli Sametha Subramanyaswamy temple at Mopidevi village on Tuesday. The DGP had darshan of the deity and performed special pujas at the temple. Addressing the newsmen later, the DGP said Rs.100 crore would be spent for introducing CCT system in the state and the network would come into operation in two months.
Under CCT, all the police stations would be linked which will help the investigating officers to decrease the crime rate, he said.
Steps have been taken to recruit home guards in proper way and the Police department has submitted proposals to the State government for providing Rs.300 per day salary, uniform, bus pass and Arogyasree (medical aid) facilities to the home guards.
The Home department is also planning to streamline the promotions system and increase more marine police stations with necessary equipment, he said.
Vijayawada Police Commissioner N. Madhusudhan Reddy, Krishna district incharge Superintendent of Police G. Suryaprakasha Rao and others officers accompanied the State police chief.
