The police are taking every effort to ensure that Tirupur is free from property crimes in another six months, according to Inspector General of Police (West Zone) P. Sivanandi.

At a meeting organised with textile unit entrepreneurs, he suggested the formation of a security committee to bring down crime rate.

Superintendent of Police A. Arun pointed out that textile unit employees were involved as many as 61 crime cases recorded in Tirupur during the last three years.

He appealed to the textile unit owners to keep a detailed profile of each of the employees, whether on casual or permanent payroll, for tracking them easily if they got involved in criminal activities.

Mr. Arun asked the businessmen to utilize the digital finger print scanner introduced by the district police recently, for profiling of their employees.

Deputy Inspector General of Police (Coimbatore Range) Bala Naga Devi spoke.
