Visakhapatnam police to launch website as part of smart policing

Soon Vizagites need not visit police stations for renewal of gun license, to file complaints
Visakhapatnam: Soon Vizagites need not visit police stations for renewal of gun license, to file complaints, to pay e-challans and fines, to obtain permissions for protest and organising public meetings and to get services from the police department. As a part of smart policing in Vizag city, which will get smart city status, the police will be launching an official website with more options.
City police chief Amit Garg said that so far Vizag city police does not have an official website. The new website of the city police commissionerate is nearing completion and will be open to the public within a few weeks. For the first time in AP, the website will have more options. The idea behind the website is that most of the services of police can be done online and people can even view the status of their application, he said.
Sources in the police said that the traffic police wing has been negotiating with a few nationalised banks for filing of traffic e-challans the online way. The cops are also chalking out plans to seek feedback from the public online whenever they embark on new traffic restrictions and few others to regulate traffic. In a recent meeting, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu made it clear that there is urgent need for the police to go hi-tech in Vizag and Vijayawada as both the cities have gained much importance.
