HYDERABAD: Cyberabad Police Commissioner Stephen Ravindra has said that a traffic task force is set up keeping in view the growing traffic in the commissionerate area.
He flagged off the traffic task force vehicles on Sunday.
Cyberabad Traffic Task Force was formed in Cyberabad police commissionerate as part of 'visible policing'. The task force would work under the supervision of Cyberabad Traffic DCP Srinivas Rao, he added.
Six motorcycles were specially retrofitted for this task force. A total of 12 constables, two on each bike, would comprise this task force and an SI rank officer oversaw them. These task force teams would patrol the areas with heavy traffic during peak hours, coordinating with law-and-order police and regularly giving appropriate instructions to the public on traffic-related issues through Public Address System (PAS) of their two-wheelers.
Alerts on chain-snatching cases would come from the control room to the task force for immediate action. They also would assist the public, especially children, old people and the disabled while they were patrolling.
Avoiding traffic jams, clearing the vehicles blocking the roads and clearing the vehicles from no parking would also be part of their work. These vehicles would patrol several routes including Madhapur, Ikea, Mindspace, Cable Bridge, Jubilee Hills Road no. 45 to ITC Kohenur.
The task force vehicle was fully equipped containing public address system, first aid kit, DD checking kit, helmet, body-worn camera, shoulder light, manpack, camera, reflective jacket, goggles, LED baton and several other technological assistances.
