This would help in cutting threat perception, says DGP

CHENNAI: Security along the perimeter is of paramount importance for Corporate Sector, said Letika Saran, Director General of Police, here on Saturday.

Speaking at a conference on ‘Building Secure Cities in Troubled Times,' Ms. Saran said those on perimeter duty should move around the area.

The company should also ensure that no one had access to the building except through the main gate.

Even when someone visits a company with proper references, the company should record the details about the visitor in the register.

This would help in cutting threat perception.

Screening

Similarly, screening of persons before absorbing them was also very important.

She also advised the Corporate Sector to have an ‘interface' officer to coordinate with the police and the corporate house.

Talking about private security, she said there were many recognised security agencies available.

For any queries on use of private security, the Corporate Sector could approach the police headquarters.

The private security agencies were monitored by the police, she pointed out.

Shakeel Akther, Inspector General of Police and Additional Commissioner, City Police, said along with the Confederation of Indian Industry, the City Police initiated a ‘Safe Chennai' programme.

However, it was not progressing as expected. Industries should start institutes to train private security personnel, he added.

The programme was jointly organised by the Security Watch India, The Madras Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Indianeye Security and City Security and Resilence Networks.
