Futuristic police station planning must before construction, says Gupta
The Pune Police Commissioner said planning should be done keeping in mind the scenarios that could happen 10 years from now.
Pune Police Commissioner Amitabh Gupta on Thursday compared planning to build a police station to planning to plant a tree. He said planning needs to be done keeping in mind the scenarios that could happen 10 years from now.
Addressing a rally after the inauguration of a state-of-the-art and innovative container under the jurisdiction of Hadapsar Police Station, Gupta said, “When a person plants a tree, he reaps the benefits after ten years when the tree bears fruit. Likewise, planning should be done to build futuristic police stations in the city.
“Previously, police stations in the city were built without proper planning. Now we have planned seven new police station buildings in the city,” Gupta added.
Hadapsar Police Station Chief Arvind Gokule said, “The existing chowki land was littered with garbage and debris. There was a fire, after which we cleared the whole area and caused a complete transformation of the area through teamwork and social support. The current chowki is a model of innovation and a good place to work for the police.
Hadapsar MLA Chetan Tupe said, “We have made a proposal for ₹1 crore
for the construction of a dedicated police station at the existing location and it will soon be approved. Additionally, we will provide all necessary support to the police department for the construction of the new police building which will span an area of one lakh square feet.
