The Jammu and Kashmir police has equipped its staff with hi-tech uniforms. As per reports, the J&K police will now be wearing body cameras, which will help them in tackling law and order problems and counter operations. Jammu and Kashmir Director General of Police (DGP) SP Vaid had made the announcement a few days back and now police has been updated.
On the big move, SP Vaid said the move will be a big boost for the police force and bring transparency in its operations. SP Vaid added that high-tech uniform with body cameras will help the state police to tackle difficult situations.
Talking to the reporters, SP Vaid said, ”Let’s say, a traffic cop is challenging somebody, allegations come that so and so was drunk and he abused me or took money from me, the camera will record, it will not tell lies. Similarly, during law and order (problems), policemen have to confront hostile crowd. In the camera, you will see who is doing right or wrong, so it is like using technology to know the truth.”
He also added that officers deployed in traffic and law and order duties will get these camera-equipped uniforms first. The J&K top cop added that these cameras will be mounted at such positions that can record the conversation between citizens and officers.
