Strict surveillance is going to start on the policemen who are late for gossiping with their friends or acquaintances or merely doing paperwork in the name of duty on the pretext of going out on Mumbai patrol. With this new system, it will not be easy to be negligent while on duty.
The new system that the Mumbai Police has introduced for the policemen on patrol in the city has been named ‘QR Code Patrolling’. Under this, it will now be mandatory for the policemen to patrol the areas where their duty will be engaged. This arrangement can be a problem for those policemen who do not perform their duties responsibly.
According to the information received from the Mumbai Police, the policemen going on patrol will have to scan the prescribed QR code at the locations where the QR code has been placed, either by two-wheel or four-wheel or other means. As soon as scanning is done, the location of the respective places will be automatically recorded in the Mumbai control room or the zonal police officer’s room. This will let the senior officers know which policeman went to patrol in which area or not
According to the Bay Police, for the QR Code patrolling system, certain areas under each police station are marked, such as parks, bridges, school walls, societies, buildings or other landmarked locations. A special type of ‘bar code’ has been pasted at these places. Policemen passing through or in charge of patrols in those areas must necessarily visit and scan it.
