SP’s dictates to PCR personnel
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, January 27
Coming down heavily on personnel manning police control room Vehicles (PCR) in the city for their “lazy” and “casual” approach, the Police Headquarters has issued a new set of instructions in order to improve their efficiency.

An order issued by the Superintendent of Police (Headquarters) states that it has been repeatedly observed that policemen deployed at the PCR at various points are performing their duty in a casual and lazy manner.

Personnel have now been directed that PCR vehicles will have to be parked at the designated base points and will not move unless permitted by the control room. Further, PCR vehicles are not to be parked on the pavements or under the trees. The order, circulated to various units, also states that whenever a vehicle is flagged down for checking or any public dealing is taking place, only one person is to remain inside the vehicle to operate the radio.
