Telangana Home Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy expressed confidence that the model of London and New York City Police could be replicated in Hyderabad.
In an informal chat with the reporters at the State Secretariat here on Thursday, Nayani said that efforts were on to bring about a revolutionary change in the policing in Hyderabad. He informed that the Telangana DGP and Commissioners of Hyerabad and Cyberabad would leave for London and New York to study the law and order and traffic management in both the cities. If permitted by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Nayani said he too would accompany the police officials on their tour after Bonalu festival.
Nayani informed that the Telangana Cabinet would soon take a decision on the recruitment of constables and Home Guards in the State. He reiterated that nearly 2000 CCTV cameras would be installed in the twin cities for effective control of law and order, especially to maintain communal harmony. He said the city police would be equipped with 1600 well-equipped cars and 1750 new bikes. The dress code of the City Police too would be changed to blue, he said.
