Case registration rate reduced in police stations: Chief Minister of Assam
Umiam: Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday claimed that the case registration rate in Assam police stations has declined by 30-35 per cent in the first three months of this year as compared to the same period last year.
He urged the police personnel to work sincerely to ensure a crime free society and create a sense of security and confidence among the people.
Sarma recalled his appeal to the police to adopt zero tolerance against criminals, economic criminals, drug mafia and brokers immediately after assuming power on May 10, 2021.
The largest consignment of trainee officers to date, comprising 578 cadets, was involved in active policing at NEPA in Meghalaya’s Re-Bhoi district.
The Chief Minister said that as police personnel work to control crime, the government is also providing necessary assistance, be it in terms of recruitment, housing facilities, use of technology and better infrastructure.
Sarma, who also has a home portfolio, emphasized that it is not enough for the police to fight crime, but also to have the highest level of professionalism and personal integrity.
Assam Police Director General Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta in his address said that the recruitment drive for the trainee officers who passed out on this occasion was conducted in a very transparent and corruption free manner.
