Kohima: The Nagaland Police is now just a call away. The Director-General of Police (DGP) Nagaland, T John Longkumer, on Monday launched the “Call your Cop” mobile application at the Police headquarters (PHQ) in Kohima.
Manoj Kumar, IPS, Superintendent (Crime), while chairing the launching ceremony at the PHQ conference hall, said that technology has become a vital tool for the police to serve the people by way of preventing crime and providing services, which according to him is a priority for the state police.
Kumar said that the mobile application is the most important initiative by the Nagaland police as it aims to bridge the gap between the police and the citizens. The mobile application is now available on the Google Playstore for Android users and will be available for iOS users soon.
Following the launch, police chief Longkumer said that the App will enable all citizens, especially those under stress to get in touch with the police easily.
Although a small state, he said that the Nagaland police is keeping up with modernisation. He informed that mobile handsets with designated mobile numbers will be distributed to the police officers, especially those on the field, to connect with the people over the phone through the App.
He said that the mobile application has been developed with high-security provisions and will be difficult to hack. Citing the emergency response number 112, which was launched earlier, he said that the call volume had declined after few months after its launch.
In this regard, the police chief urged the people to reach out to the police through the user-friendly application, further seeking the cooperation of the citizens.
The launch of “Call your Cops-Nagaland Police”, he said, is a beginning towards interactive communication between the cops and the people.
The “Call your Cop” App will have contact numbers of Nagaland Police officers along with other features, including alerts, tourist tips, SOS and emergency numbers, nearest police station and search feature.
It aims to provide a single repository for storing contact information of all Nagaland Police human resources. It will enable users to search and find police officers, police station details with an interactive map besides other features.
