More reforms in store for police department

Latest News

Home minister KJ George reiterated that the Karnataka police will be the happiest among their fraternity in the country.

At an event on Wednesday, he hinted at a few administrative and social security reforms, including zero tolerance for any kind of harassment to junior officers from their seniors.

“I have been told that some policemen lived in dingy dwellings that were constructed decades ago and some of them are even dilapidated. I will visit some of the police lines in the state before arriving at a model for the police quarters. Preliminary instructions have been given to the Police Housing Corporation Limited to construct at least 3,000 units every year,” he said.

The government is also planning to give skill-based education to their children and make them employable, George said.

Taking exception to the allegation of sexual harassment meted out by an ACP-level official to his subordinate in the Mangalore commissionerate, George said the police top brass have been asked to be stringent about such incidents and consider it as a zero-tolerance subject. He said any official found guilty of such charges would be dealt on par with a common criminal.
