A good news for the Bengaluru’s residents is that they can now connect with the city police directly on WhatsApp to report or enquire about any law and order problem. The numbers became operational from Tuesday and will allow the residents to just WhatsApp the senior police officials regarding any issues. Phone numbers have been provided to 10 Deputy Commissioners of the city to use them only for WhatsApp. However, these numbers will not be used for any SMSs or calls.

Now the city police control room also has its own dedicated WhatsApp number. Any complaints received there will be forwarded to the zonal Dcp concerned. The DCPs will check the WhatsApp messages and send police personnel to the spot to attend the complaints.


The different WhatsApp numbers are:

 

13102782_1040929875972719_309970597055103457_n

This is not for the first time that the cops in Bengaluru are incorporating technology to help people. They have been active in using social media — Facebook and Twitter — as tool to monitor crime related activities, bust crimes and provide information.


Previous online drives of Bengaluru Police

In July 2015, the city police told that the residents could use Twitter’s live streaming app Periscope to record videos of crimes and vehicles jumping signals as other offences.

In 2014, Bangalore Police raided the office of a fake online shopping portal based on complaints received on Twitter.


The Logical Indian appreciates the initiative taken by the Bangalore Police dept to facilitate the citizens with all possible means to report or complaint about issues. We hope other cities of the country will also launch such initiatives very soon.
