Dgp: Technology Will Help Improve Policing In Mysuru | Mysuru News – Times of India

Mysuru: Karnataka police will make use of modern technology including closed-circuit television cameras for surveillance in Mysuru.
High-resolution surveillance cameras will be installed at all entry and exit points to Mysuru city as a measure to keep a check on the movements of suspicious persons and miscreants. High-resolution cameras will also be put in on the new expressway from Mysuru to Bengaluru to monitor the movement of the vehicles.
Director-general and inspector general of police (head of police force) Karnataka Praveen Sood disclosed to TOI that more surveillance cameras will be installed in Mysuru city as part of security measures. “We cannot keep adding manpower to the force. We have to bring in technology and use them at the forefront of policing. Even the NH-275 will have cameras between Mysuru and Bengaluru,” the DGP stated.
An officer said miscreants tend to leave the city after committing offences to evade arrest. Having cameras would surely help the investigating officers to identify or to obtain a clue about the miscreants. Hence, technology would be used to keep a check on unlawful activities and movements of suspicious persons, he said.
Last year, a few miscreants from Tamil Nadu had left the city soon after gang-raping a girl. They had come to Mysuru city on work and while returning, they committed a serious offence. Their arrest within a week too led cops to uncover various other crimes including robbery by them. They targeted lone travelers during night hours and attacked them, the cops stated. In many cases, bike-borne miscreants have left the city after robbing women of their gold chains. Currently, the existing surveillance cameras are not good enough to clearly identify the suspicious persons or their vehicles, said an officer.
Recently, during the Prime Minister’s visit to Mysuru, Karnataka police had installed surveillance cameras at several places including on the routes PM travelled within the city areas, and places where he attended the events.
Police commissioner Chandragupta informed that the state cabinet recently approved the installation of additional surveillance cameras in the commissionerate.
