As the nation saw its worst ever crisis in the second wave of the corona pandemic, cops did their splendid best to make lives for people worth living. Amid nationwide lockdown, the Lucknow Police has been quietly distributing ration and food to the poor struggling to earn a single meal a day.
The police distributed food to daily wage workers and rickshaw pullers at different pockets in the city with help from NGOs.
ACP Hazratganj circle Abhay Mishra along with his team also distributed ration to stranded labourers from Bahraich.
Further in a unique project involving use of high-end technology in policing and crime prevention, special Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled cameras, capable of reading facial expressions are to be installed at 200 crime hotspots and will sound alert to the police control room on noticing signs of any women in distress.
It is part of the Mission Shakti programme launched in October 2020. Lucknow police commissioner, D K Thakur told a paper that “We have identified 200 hotspots across the city on the basis of presence of girls and women in an area and street crime complaints at Women Power Line 1090 and stalking and harassment plaints to UP 112.”
In its efforts to ensure oxygen reaches the rightful person, Lucknow Police also started an oxygen cylinder bank to help needy patients. It’s the brainchild of joint commissioner of police, law and order, Piyush Mordia. The oxygen cylinders will be made available on the basis of the requirement,doctor’s prescription and an Aadhaar card.
This was done alongside a campaign against the alleged black marketing of drugs used in the treatment of COVID-19.
