GIS map brings Delhi Police and residents closer

New Delhi, India: Delhi Police in India launched an interactive e-initiative on its website. Dubbed the ‘Know Your Police Station’ programme, the web platform aims to help residents find out the jurisdiction of a particular police station on a GIS map. 
In addition, those visiting the Delhi Police’s official homepage at www.delhipolice.nic.in will also be able to access a particular Station House Officer’s (SHO) profile containing his picture and contact details including his mobile phone number.
It aims to help residents chalk out the route to the nearest police station, provides details about officers’ in-charge and even information about an organised crime. “This is part of our progressive, innovative and responsive policing policy and will soon be available as an application on smart phones,” said Delhi Police Commissioner BK Gupta.
This web platform has been developed in collaboration with Microsoft. “There is also a feedback provision in the platform which the public can use to provide information to their SHO about crime-prone areas,” the commissioner said.
