The DGP chairs the meeting of the State Safety Committee for Railways

Bhubaneswar: RP Sharma, Director-General of Police (DGP), today held the first quarterly meeting of the State Railways Safety Committee at his camp office in Bhubaneswar.
During the meeting, discussions were held on the safety and protection of passengers and rail freight, the legal and regulatory situation, the crime scenario, sabotage, disaster management, left-wing extremist activities and other relevant issues related to rail safety.
In addition, the measures of the last SLSCR meeting were discussed. The WhatsApp group, founded by both GRP districts, including RPF, works well by sharing information on crime, criminals and other important issues related to women and children.
RPF personnel were asked to install baggage scanners and a larger number of surveillance cameras at key stations, covering all areas of a train station. The RPF also learned about their project work on the installation of video surveillance systems in trains.
Due to the genuine efforts of the CSF and RPF, free transgender traffic in stations and trains is somewhat limited.
This year, seven police kiosks were installed at the Cuttack, Bhadrak, Balasore, Sambalpur, Jharsuguda, Titilagarh and Rayagada stations, which were increased from four to eleven to assist the women, destitute children and disabled people in the station grounds.
It was decided that during a bandh appeal given by the agitators, all parties involved will make joint efforts to disseminate the situation well in advance.
The RPF and CSF staff will receive orientation training on how to deal with LWE activities. It was proposed to train the CSF staff for the detection / distribution of bombs.
Special Forces are required to prevent the illegal transport of narcotics and psychotropic substances in trains and on the premises of train stations.
The DGP proposed to put together a team of GRP and RPF to prevent drug trafficking on trains. The IG RPF suggested creating a list of MO criminals, collecting their photos and monitoring them. Both the CSF and RPF railway authorities were invited to take measures to improve the infrastructure of the CSF, including the construction and repair of public and residential buildings.
It was decided to step up cooperation between the RPF and the GRP by holding monthly meetings at the SRP and DSC RPF level, which can address daily bottlenecks at work.
It was also decided to involve GRP’s staff in the RPF’s training programs in order to involve them in the work of Railways and RPF.
