Panaji, July 3 Goa Police is considering the options of complaint boxes or online registration of complaints by the public in view of restrictions forced by the coronavirus pandemic, newly-appointed state DGP Mukesh Kumar Meena said on Friday.
Addressing a press conference shortly after taking charge as the Goa Director General of Police, Meena said that he was in touch with police in Delhi and other states to put in place a mechanism to insulate Goa Police personnel from corona infections.
"The entry to police stations will be restricted to some extent. The complaint system will also be improved. We will either allow complaints to be dropped into a box or through online system," Meena said.
"We are looking for minimum interaction, but police will have to do their duty in the containment zones, inter-state border, crowded places, airport, railway stations, everywhere. We are working on precautions which need to be taken," the DGP said.
Asked about the 20-odd Goa police personnel infected by the virus over the last few days, Meena said: "I've asked my officials to analyse each and every case first, and find the origin of infection; and accordingly, further briefing will be given to the staff," Meena said.
