Chittoor: SP G. Srinivas, on Tuesday said that top priority would be given to reduce crime against women to zero level in 2016 by mooting "Mahila Security Panels", which would come in to force on International Women's Day on March 8. Addressing a press conference, here, the SP said the district police  could register substantial results in many areas of policing in 2015, particularly with a fall in crime rate against women by 25 per cent; fall in road accidents by 17 per cent; property recovery up by 73 per cent. Nearly 60 per cent of the total 4,114 cases were solved in the year.The police district achieved the distinction of being number one in the entire country in implementing the Crime Criminal Tracking Network System with data of as many as 2.5 lakh police records.

With the entire police focus being kept on vigil against red sanders smuggling in the year, as many as 181 cases were booked, and 936 accused, including two Chinese, were arrested, with seizure of 57 tonnes of logs and 157 vehicles, all worth over Rs. 17 crore. By booking 20 PD Act cases in 2015, the total cases under the category went up to 50. Proposals were sent to the Enforcement Directorate for attaching the properties of 10 red sanders smugglers; and an appeal was made for issuing Red Corner Notice for nabbing an international smuggler. Nine notorious gangs involved in red sanders trade were nabbed this year.

The SP said Chittoor police could successfully introduce a unique software (Red Sanders Accused Information System) to monitor the movement of the smuggling accused. The official said in 2016, two new concepts of “Public Partnership” and “Community Policing” would be introduced in Chittoor. Services of students having technical knowledge would be utilised in police stations. Terming the double murder of Mayor couple in Chittoor on November 17 as a sensation, the SP said that as many as 23 accused were listed out, and except for two all were arrested. Law and order situation would be further strengthened in the district, and rowdism.
