He further informed that in the present world, Information Technology (IT), internet, and mobile is pervasive which cannot be avoided, and sometimes it is used for criminal activities and wrongdoings.
This initiative has been undertaken, keeping in view of the total modernization along police departments, across the state and nation.
“This is also on the drive to stop violence against weaker sections,” he added.
Incorporating of a Citizen Centric Policing, the CUG App envisages to make it convenient for the public to directly communicate with Police Officials through phone calls or email.
