JORHAT, Jan 9 � In order to speed up service across the district, Jorhat Police today launched a website, namely which will henceforth provide facilities to the citizens for seeking immediate help from a concerned officer-in-charge(OC) of any of the eight police stations during times of need.

A complainant (with proper address and phone number) can inform any case of legal violation or accident immediately by using the �contact us� option in the website which provides sending text to the SP, whose mobile and e-mail automatically receives the information about the happening, which obviously facilitates police to take immediate action for prevention of crime and initiating legal action against the involved accused.

If the complainant wishes to keep himself anonymous, he may use options in the website for anonymity, which will be kept confidential by the SP. But it is mandatory for every complainant to text his proper identity along with address and contact numbers, which will help police during investigation and tracking down the criminals.

As the names and photographs of missing persons of the district are published through the website, the citizens are expected to help the police if they know something about the presence and whereabouts of the concerned missing people. Photographs and identification marks of repeat offenders are also uploaded in the website so that the citizens may identify such accused persons in their respective areas so as to prevent criminal activities, besides keeping the police posted.

A complaint can be subsequently registered as a first information report (FIR) through the mandatory official procedure at the police station of the area concerned.

The user-friendly website also provides applied knowledge of various kinds, i.e., on traffic guidelines, rules regarding traffic signals and many other options for making the people aware about the rules and regulations for maintaining smooth law and order in the district.
