New city police chief for improving traffic situation

Staff Reporter

Kozhikode: G. Sparjankumar, who assumed charge as Commissioner of Police, Kozhikode city, has said that the city police will explore the possibility of tying up with the city Corporation to improve the traffic system here.

He told The Hindu here on Wednesday that the police would seek the assistance of the Corporation in installing surveillance cameras in as many places as possible in the city to track the movement of vehicles and bring an end to traffic congestion. More cameras were needed in and around the private bus stand, Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) bus station, and at the railway station.

The traffic police have already installed high-end cameras at several places, including Mananchira, Mavoor Road, Rajaji Road, Railway Station Link Road, Palayam Junction, Poonthanam Junction, Mofussil Bus Station, Kerala State Road Transport Corporation bus station, Arayidathupalam Junction, First and Second Railway Gates, Eranhipalam Junction, and Karaparamba Junction.

The cameras are linked to computers to stream live video images at the control room. Now, the Motor Vehicles Department (MVD) was planning to install speed-detection cameras at Pavangad, Nallalam curve, Pantheerankavu Bypass, Nadakkavu, and Meenchanda Bypass Junction to check traffic offences.

The Commissioner said he would continue with the ongoing projects and schemes initiated by his predecessors.

The police would actively monitor the Student Police Cadet scheme based on the guidelines of the Home Department, he said.

Mr. Sparjankumar, who hails from the Andhra Pradesh, belongs to the 2002 IPS batch of the Kerala cadre. The outgoing Commissioner, Anup Kuruvilla John, has been posted as Superintendent of Police, Kannur.
