In the first phase mobile vans sent to eight zones
Samajwadi Government committed to sprucing up of law and order
Equipping the police force with modern technology for effective crime control and acting promptly on incidents a need of time : Chief Minister
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Akhilesh Yadav today flagged off 8 mobile forensic vans from his official residence. In the first phase, these vans would go to eight zones – Lucknow, Agra, Kanpur, Gorakhpur, Meerut, Allahabad, Varanasi and Bareilly.
In the second phase these mobile vans would be sent to the remaining 67 districts. On the occasion, the Chief Minister said that these vans would aid the police in nabbing culprits as they are equipped to conduct preliminary investigation facilities related to Biology, Serology, chemicals, explosives, narcotics, fire arms etc.
These forensic vans with help of scientists would go a long way in collecting on-crime-spot evidence and management of the crime scene successfully. Mr. Yadav also said that the Samajwadi government was committed to sprucing up law and order and added that the state government was making efforts to wed modern technology to basic policing.
It was under this endeavour, he pointed out further that ultra-modern control rooms have been established in Kanpur and Lucknow and said that assimilating modern technology to the police force was a demand of time. The Chief Minister also informed that only recently in Lucknow, smart city surveillance ‘Drishti’, public CCTV project ‘Ek Nazar; Ek Ummeed’ and air surveillance project using drone cameras have been started to rein in criminals.
Mr. Yadav expressed hope that such efforts would bear fruits and ensure effective improvement in law and order. It may be pointed out here that modern day technology was being used in the state by criminals to commit crime and they leave little or no prints of their crime. Police finds investigating such crimes very difficult and have to face the wrath of the people. In such challenging circumstances, scientific leads help in a big way in cracking difficult crimes.
