Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khatar launched the 24×7 police web portal called ‘HarSamay’ a new era of SMART policing. The web portal was launched at Indradhanush Auditorium in Panchkula on Thursday. The portal is available on www.haryanapoliceonline.gov.in .
Director General of Police (DGP) S N Vashisht welcomed the Chief Minister and highlighted the achievement of the police department. Inspector General of Police (IGP) Shartujit Kapoor said that now people could register their complaints online, anywhere and anytime, avoiding the hassle of personally visiting the police stations. Initially it has been launched with six integrated services and seven other would be added by the end of this month. Shatrujit said, “Six integrated services include lodging of complaint, lost property report, RTI request, hotel visitor information, cybercafe visitor information and community laisoning. Through this portal we will ensure that public does not rush to the police stations for all such issues and can get the same at the click of single key.”
While advocating the smart policing, the Chief Minister said that with the launching of the HarSamay, the police department has taken an effective step in the direction of making police sensitive and strict, modern and mobile, alert and accountable, reliable and responsive, trained and techno-savvy.
The CM said, “People should be informed about police achievements by way of effective usage of social media so as to increase their faith towards police. Such transparencies in the police department will definitely improve the police-public relationship. We will soon prepare a police e-book describing the achievements of police and saluting the police martyrs by highlighting their deeds which will also be uploaded on this police portal.”
The CM also talked about the police welfare and urged the police officials to reach out to public and win hearts. Describing ‘aware citizen’ and ‘Empowered crime control mechanism’ as two basic pillars of fine law and order situation, the Chief Minister said that government priority was to ensure safety of all citizens, especially the women as well as strengthen the law and order situation. “I believe that all officials and officers from the level of constable to DGP posted from police station to headquarter would take it as a challenge and maintain law and order situation in a better way in the state,” said CM Khatar.
