Hubbali (Karnataka) [India], September 27 (ANI): Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraja Bommai on Monday said that forensic science laboratories would be set up in six cities including Kalaburagi, Hubballi, Dharwad and Mysuru to facilitate speedy investigation and crime detection.
In his address at the foundation stone laying ceremony for Kasaba Police Station, South Traffic Station, Alnavar Police Station, DAR administrative block and 36 police quarters at Hubballi today, he said that he has already discussed this with Union Home Minster Amit Shah.
He also said that a training centre in the model of the National Defence Academy in Khadakwasla would be set up for the mid-level personnel of the State Police Department.
"For the first time Officers on Crime Scene are being appointed in the State. Apart from this, 16,000 police constables and sub-inspectors are being appointed. Officers of Deputy Superintendents of Police and above ranks should not restrict themselves to the office and administrative works, instead, they need to visit police stations and also should work on the field," he said.
