The Bihar authorities will arrange vacationer police stations in Rajgir (Nalanda) and Bodhgaya for the security of nationwide and worldwide vacationers and vacationers visiting these locations. An announcement issued by the state police headquarters in Patna stated, “Bihar Director General of Police (DGP), SK Singhal, has instructed senior officials to set up the new tourist police stations in Rajgir and Bodhgaya by September this year. Senior officials have also been instructed to select cops who will be posted at tourist police stations.”
A call to this impact was taken following a high-level assembly chaired by the DGP.
“Cops who will be posted at tourist police stations must be trained properly. Since they (tourist cops) have to interact with international tourists, they must know English properly. For these dedicated cops, proper training sessions must be organized for them. Besides, these cops will wear a blue jacket so that they can be easily identified,” stated the assertion. To take care of the scarcity of manpower in Bihar Police, it was determined that retired law enforcement officials from the rank of assistant police inspectors (ASIs) to inspectors might be engaged on contract foundation, the assertion stated.
