Mysuru: In a bid to make themselves more accessible to citizens, the Karnataka State Police has released an official mobile application for Android and iOS.
The new application ‘Karnataka State Police App’ comes a year after the release of ‘Suraksha’ app released by the then Chief Minister Siddharamaiah in 2017, which was aimed specifically at ensuring women’s safety.
Developed by Capulus Technologies Private Limited from Chikkamagalur, the app includes the ‘SOS’ button through which citizens can directly reach the Police. Users of the app will also be able to locate their nearest Police Station, report non-emergency incidents directly through the app and also attach images. They can also look at the details of all missing persons in Karnataka.
The new initiative is a part of the State Police’s efforts to modernise and extend the reach of its services. The app comes in a slew of services started by the Police to become more accessible to citizens.
The new Karnataka State Police app has included this vital feature and a few others to help Policemen in the State. This included the ability to download FIRs, enter the details of stolen vehicles, and locate contact details for any Police Officer in the State.
