Active for approximately four months, the popularity of Rajasthan Police’s handles on social media platforms including Twitter, Instagram and Facebook has increased with passage of time. “Since the time we have started sharing information on social media, not only the outreach has increased, but also the two way communication between police and public has been strengthened,” said OP Galhotra, DGP, Rajasthan Police.

While communication in today’s world is an important factor for any institution, the Rajasthan Police is getting benefit from social media in an unexpected manner. 

“There have been several instances when we have been provided information by individuals about criminals who have been hiding from cops. Since it is a discreet way of sharing information, people do not have to come out in the open to inform the police about criminals. Several times the location of criminals or some vital information about them have been provided on our social media platforms and we have acted on them getting positive results. It has also strengthened our reach among the teenagers as well who use social media more than other age groups,” said Pankaj Kumar Singh, ADG crime.
