Police stations to go green

Police stations and offices under the Police Department are set to sport a greener look, in a move aimed at making them more eco-friendly and accessible to the public. State Police Chief Loknath Behera has directed all District Police Chiefs and unit heads to plant trees on whatever space is available on the premises. They have been asked to opt for local varieties of fruit trees and flowering trees. The trees are to be planted without causing problems for the functioning of the unit or the daily parade and training.

The circular directed the officials not to choose exotic varieties like acacia that are harmful to the environment and deplete soil and groundwater resources.
