In a definite move to make its functioning transparent and more people-friendly, State police is all set to modernize policing in the state, which in turn will make the functioning of police stations on record through the installation of closed circuit cameras.
Those approaching police stations with complaints or for any other enquiry, now need not worry about any kind of harassment once the new proposal of fixing closed circuit cameras was complete. The cameras in each station will capture the footage of
entire proceedings in stations. The same footage can be used in case of any harassment and human rights violation allegations arise from the public.
As per the sources, If everything goes as per plan, all the 920 police stations across the state will have closed circuit cameras to ensure human rights. The decision coincides with Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid's suggestion that all proceedings
at police stations across the country should be video graphed to discourage custodial torture. The minister had said recently that there should be video graphing and recording of proceedings in all police stations so that there will be evidence available for everything.
