This is the age of the Internet. And needless to say (sadly), everyone lives their lives virtually. It makes the job only that much easier for cyber criminals. But in order to make the job only that much hard for them, Odisha Police had waged war against cyber criminals on their own turf for quite some time now.
But “Social Media” is completely a new game for Odisha Police and way out of their league. Almost all law enforcement departments of major states and cities have their own Facebook and twitter handles but till now Odisha Police was not into Social Media at all. But not anymore.
Recently in Odisha a woman when travelling from Kendrapada to BBSR was misbehaved in a running bus. But the irony is she was unable to let police know about it as the number provided for the safety of woman was unreachable and she couldn’t get connected to Police officials for the obvious reason. Our Police Department is not Social Media. So she tweeted the incident to PM Narendra modi, Naveen Patnaik and Kendrapada MLA.
Rest is history. Suddenly CM felt the need to bring Odisha Police on Social Media and Odisha Police DG K.B Singh just declared that 35 police districts and 10 range offices will have their own facebook and twitter handle to help the citizens through social media.
It’s a “Better late than never” and a complete Win Win situation for both Odisha Police and the people of Odisha. Our advice for the miscreants is “Odisha Police To Be Your New Friend On Facebook Soon! So You Better Be Careful! Your creepy acts will now get you a long date with them.”
