2 police stations in C'garh's Naxal belt get ISO certification

Raipur, Sep 9 (PTI) Two police stations in

Chhattisgarh's Naxal-affected Bijapur district have received

ISO 9001:2015 certification for achieving stipulated

parameters in policing, a senior official said Sunday.

Madded and Bhopalpatnam police stations in Bijapur

have got Quality Management System ISO 9001:2015 certificate

for prevention and detection of crime, maintaining law and

order and establishing peace and tranquillity, Bijapur

Superintendent of Police Mohit Garg told PTI.

The certification is given by Geneva-based

International Standards Organisation (ISO) on the basis of

various parameters, he said.

It was received on August 27 and handed over to police

station officials on September 7 by Bijapur MLA and state

Forest Minister Mahesh Gagda, the SP said.

"For the first time in the country, police stations

from Maoist-hit areas have bagged ISO certificates," Garg


He said that the task to transform these two police

stations, situated on National Highway 63 passing through a

dense insurgency-affected forest corridor, started after he

took over as SP in February this year.

"Police personnel were briefed about working in a

certain manner to improve the functioning of key areas which

constituted the focus of ISO," Garg explained.

By July, formalities required for the certification

were completed after which the ISO inspection team was

invited, he added.

"A team of Swiss Cert Pvt Ltd, authorised by ISO,

visited the police stations in July and August this year and

conducted an audit of their functioning," Garg said.

Informing about the facilities in the two police

stations, the SP said, "These police stations have rooms for

women complainants and victims, entertainment rooms for kids

if they come along with victims and a guest room. Separate

restrooms and toilets have been built for men and women

personnel," he said.

"Moreover, kitchen and drinking water facilities were

provided and stock room, radio room and computer room were

upgraded," he added.

The official said that in Madded police station, an

open gym and a garden for kids were developed.

He said that other police stations would also be

upgraded similarly. PTI TKP
