Internal appraisal of police stations effective

L. Srikrishna



ROLE MODEL: A view of Triplicane police station

CHENNAI: An internal appraisal system introduced last year for police stations in the city has started delivering results.

The Washermenpet police station, in north Chennai zone, has scored high on the law and order front, while the Selaiyur station in the south zone and Triplicane in the central zone topped in crime prevention and investigation aspects.

The Pondy Bazaar station, however, was found lagging in both law and order maintenance and crime prevention and detection.

Under the system, the performing and non-performing officers would be identified with ease as it directly made the individuals accountable for the success and failure of the stations. Thus higher grades meant good maintenance of law and order as well as good governance.

A senior officer told The Hindu on Monday that an inspector and his team is responsible for maintenance of law and order, crime prevention, executing non-bailable warrants, disposal of under investigation cases, court works, maintenance of case diaries, producing witnesses among others.

"In the first year, the performance was fairly above average in more than 50 police stations and in the coming years we would improve the functioning," he added.
