He said, “We will keep a surveillance on bad elements such as rowdy sheeters, rumour and mischief mongers. We will use our method to keep an eye on them to curtail any repeated offence. We are also showing zero tolerance towards organized crime which will effect law and order. In addition, community policing will be prioritized.

“I have also been notified about private buses’ negligent driving. In rural areas, we will stress on traffic awareness. We are also planning to start counselling on traffic for those who violate traffic rules habitual offenders. A social media monitoring cell will be set up in two sub divisions, Puttur and Bantwal in the coming days to verify and find reasons behind certain rumour mongers’ social media posts before booking them as per provision.

“The beat system needs to be reactivated in rural areas as senior citizens live in many isolated places. There are more chances of crime in such areas. We will start the beat system and patrolling in those particular places. As Dakshina Kannada shares the border with Kerala, we will strengthen the check posts in those areas.

“As election in inching closer, election preparedness will also be on the priority. We will file FIR if hate speeches affect the law and order,” he said.

Dr Vikram Amathe hails from Belagavi. He is a 2012 batch officer who has served in Bellary and Mysuru as DCP admin crime and traffic, Chamarajanagar as additional SP during election, in Dakshina Kannada during MP election, Shivmogga and Belagavi.

    Nothing new. This is customary usual inaugural statement which is very easy to do. You will be transferred immediately if you do what you said with help of another steam of police that is Moral Police and you are helpless against them. Either Do or Die.

    Maximum people of DK are educated and there is less organized crime compare to other parts of India. Major amd notorious organized crimes is immoral policing and hate speech. If he atleast take action against hate speech, it will be GREAT.

    First take action against immoral police acts by fringe elements (with political backing of course) and drug cartels flourishing with political god fathers and khaki protection with regular kickbacks, Unbiased action as per oath taken in countries name will bless police and their families. Else, curse will befall.
