Complaint Management System and Police Record Management System
The days are gone when police station clerks had to beg complainants for stationery, fuel, and food. Now, the front desks being run by civilian staff are rapidly changing the face of the police force because the station assistants are given all accessories - ranging from printers to Wi-Fi and android handsets to water dispensers. Above all, they work in air-conditioned rooms.At these front desks, well-dressed and young officers treat the complaints like the guys we see in offices of multinational companies. They immediately report complaints through a centralised online system. The visitors are given a few services on-the-spot like registration and verification of private persons and official documents. The complainants are handed over electronic-receipts. The senior officers monitor the whole system from different systems and locations.The high-tech complaint handling centers had been established to improve working atmosphere, maintain the official record, and ensure timely registration of cases. This initiative now provides a pleasant environment to the complainants at police stations so that they can file complaints without any fear and hesitationFront desks are monitored on regular basis from the special operation rooms established at offices of district police officers and regional police officers. These desks are set up in front of the police stations for the convenience of the people and these centers are equipped with the required infrastructure including equipment and furniture. The SSAs and PSAs perform their duties independently and they have nothing to do with the SHOs and the Moharars of the police stations.The establishment of Front Desks has ushered in a new era of public service and will go a long way in improving police perception. “The project is a practical manifestation of the provincial government’s vision for improved service delivery and provides equal access and respect to all irrespective of their social status, an access which is easy, immediate and direct.
Front desks are aimed at winning over public trust and satisfaction through prompt and timely redressal of public complaints by incorporating automated technology solutions for enhanced police accessibility, accelerated processes, and continuous monitoring. The system also features an in-built analysis of complaints statistics thereby enabling the central police office and the inspector general of police to monitor the working of the field officers.
