Jamshedpur: In an attempt to improve the skills of traffic police in Jamshedpur, training classes will be held for them every Sunday, starting December 11. Classes will be taken by a traffic officer in each of the five traffic police stations of the city. The officer will guide the traffic jawans in ways to deal with vehicle riders during checking drives.
“That apart, they will also be informed about the new amendments to the Central Motor Vehicles Rules 1989. The aim is to teach the traffic police how to be friendly and polite towards people while discharging their duties,” said DSP (traffic) Kamal Kishore.
Kishore on Sunday held a meeting with the officers of the city’s traffic police stations at Bistupur, Golmuri, Mango, Jugsalai and Sakchi to draw up the programme.
“A new batch of the traffic guards has joined the department recently and it is necessary to inform them about rules and responsible behaviour,” the DSP added.
Plagues by shortage of traffic jawans, the Jamshedpur police is currently managing the city traffic with just 90 policemen against a sanctioned strength of 350, officials here said.
With an average 250 cases of violation of the MV Act rules annually in the district, the traffic police collects Rs 1 crore in fine every year.
“With the start of the picnic season, the work of the traffic police increases in the city as regulation of the vehicular traffic at the leading parks is a tiresome job,” said 50-year-old, picnic enthusiast, Vijay Goyal.
