Helpline number, 9910641064
A circular issued by the top brass of the force has asked all the officials from Chowki in-charge to Joint Commissioners, to use the app to connect with the general public apart from themselves.
Describing about the positive features of WhatsApp, the circular, issued on August 28 by Sspecial Commissioner (Law and Order) Deepak Mishra, said, “We all must make optimum utilisation of this latest social media – WhatsApp.
All the officials have been given two weeks time to comply with the directions.
The decision was taken after introduction of ‘WhatsApp’ in some of the units brought visible changes in bridging the chasm between the police and public.
The new helpline number, 9910641064, has been started on August 6 where one can not only just call and register your complaint but also send a recorded audio or video clip if any police man harasses a person or demands bribe.
