Hyderabad: Hyderabad Commissioner Anjani Kumar said the new initiative of accepting complaints from petitioners at their doorsteps and delivering the FIRs is receiving good response in the city.

Since the launch of the initiative at the beginning of the year, around 90 complaints were received by the patrol officers at the door steps. “First Information Reports were issued in 50 cases and remaining petty cases were booked. The initiative is part ‘Governance at the doorstep’, concept of the Telangana government,” the Commissioner said.

He reiterated that the city police were making all efforts to provide a safe and secure environment to the citizens. “It is a good beginning for us and we expect to fine tune the exercise in next one or two months and take it to the next level,” Anjani Kumar said.

The police official said they would introduce a dynamic patrolling system after studying the crime pattern in the respective areas. “The patrolling officer can do around 80 per cent of the work of a police station as they have knowledge of the crime pattern of the area. We will take their inputs and improve the beat system,” the Commissioner said.
