Policemen in North Delhi area are now seen patrolling the streets with motorcycles fitted with Global Positioning System (GPS) monitoring system and working on a ‘geo-fencing system’.

The GPS device is linked to a secure Internet portal through a software. This system enables senior officers, including station house officers and others, to keep track of the position of the patrolling bikes. They will simply have to log in to the system and key in a password provided to each beat and they can know the position of the patrolling vehicle.

In case a bike goes out of its pre-determined patrolling area, the ‘geo-fencing’ system will automatically make the GPS system send an SMS to the SHO and the ACP and they can inquire from the policeman about the reason for his presence outside the designated area.

“These motorcycles are used for patrolling by-lanes, which are more prone to street crimes like snatching and robbery,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Madhur Verma.

After organising road safety awareness workshops at various places in the Capital, the Delhi Traffic Police is now creating awareness among school children.

The “Road Safety Cell” of Traffic Police on Monday organised an awareness workshop for school children up to Class VIII. The workshop, which was organised in association with NGO “Safe Kids Foundation”, was conducted at Traffic Training Park in Roshanara Bagh.

The members of the NGO along with Delhi Traffic Police officials taught road safety rules to the children with the help of some interesting games.

As a part of the workshop, children were taught the importance of crossing a road through zebra crossing and foot-over bridges. They were also informed about various traffic rules.

“We taught road safety to the children with the help of interesting games in a practical manner so that children learn the importance of safety on roads more easily and what they have learnt remains registered in their mind for long,” said an officer.
