“Accountability, transparency and responsibility will be strictly enforced among the Police personnel of the city to make them more people-friendly,” said City Police Commissioner Dr. Mohammed Abdullah Saleem, who assumed charge this morning from his predecessor K.L. Sudheer, who has been posted as Additional Director of Fire Services at Bangalore.

Dr. M.A. Saleem, who has obtained Ph.D in Traffic Management and was serving as Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic and Security) in Bangalore, said that traffic problem is not limited to Mysore city alone but is global, because of the rise in population and increase in number of vehicles.

Dr. Saleem, who has undergone a training course in Traffic Management in the US, assured of streamlining the city’s traffic system using the existing infrastructure, after studying the existing system and then holding discussions with the elected representatives, government organisations and NGOs.

Recalling that he had served as the DCP in Mysore city for nine months during 1997-98, the new Police Commissioner said that a lot of changes have taken place since then. I will study the priorities for policing here and then implement schemes if required.

Sudheer thanks efficient colleagues, alert media and co-operative citizenry: Outgoing Commissioner Sudheer, who had served here for one and a half years, said that he could serve Mysore successfully because of the efficient Police personnel, alert media and a co-operative citizenry.

“People of Mysore are very peace-loving; hence we were able to implement ‘people-friendly policing’ in city. The successful conduct of Dasara and other events requiring elaborate Police security is because of the people’s co-operation,” he said.

DCPs Basavaraj Malagathi, K.P. Bheemaiah and Prabhashankar, all ACPs and Inspectors were present.
