Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje today asked police officers to discharge their duty with dedication to create fear among criminals and win the trust of people.
"To maintain law and order, police officers should be reactive and work pro-actively," she said on the third day of the Collector-SP conference here.
Addressing SPs and senior police officials, Raje said the police force should work in a professional manner.
"District SPs should incorporate the use of information technology and social media to improve their functioning and vigilance," the Chief Minister said.
There should not be delays in registering FIRs, especially of the needy and the poor. Timely action by police is important. Officers should hear out complaints of people and resolve them in a timely manner to prevent tense situations, she said.
"Senior police officers should better their communication with people and have first hand information from them," Raje said, asking officers to be more sensitive toward issues related to women, children, Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribes.
She directed district SPs to use social media platforms and IT tools to check crime and contain spread of rumours on such platforms.
Police officers gave presentations on strategies to check cyber-crime and deal with organised crime.
Members of the council of ministers, parliamentary secretaries, Chief Secretary O P Meena and senior police officers were present at the conference.
