Prabhat Ranjan, Police Commissioner launched a new website and a mobile app on behalf of Mumbai Police.
The website of Navi Mumbai Police Commissionerate and the mobile app- “Citizen Cop” are for the safety of citizens, mainly women.
“Our official website, navimumbaipolice.org, will act as a medium for interaction between the police and the citizens. The citizens can now obtain online information about the police permissions, types of licences, legal aspects, safety related information among others. Now, the citizens will not require to physically visit the police station for submitting mandatory documents such as rental agreement, domestic help employed, etc. Instead, they can do it online now by clicking on the option of ‘Inform Police”, Police commissioner Prabhat Ranjan said.
He asked the citizens to help in upgrading the website.
Ranjan added, “The key feature of Citizen Cop app is SOS facility for women in distress. If a woman travelling alone in a taxi or an auto finds the driver suspicious, she can click on the option and send distress messages to three mobile numbers of her family members and one message to the police control room.”
The app provides relevant information about the Traffic Police Department.
The website and app will be very helpful for the citizens regarding their safety.
