Segway Patrolling System Introduced At Bhubaneswar Station
Bhubaneswar: East Coast Railway (ECoR) has introduced Segway patrolling system at platforms at Bhubaneswar railway station, today.
General Manager of ECoR, Vidya Bhushan inaugurated this facility at Bhubaneswar railway station in presence of Principal Chief Security Commissioner of Railway Protection Force (RPF) Raja Ram and Divisional Railway Manager, Khurda Road Sashikant Singh.
The battery operated and eco-friendly Segway system will help RPF personnel to move from one place to another during their patrolling duty at stations in less time and also help in crowd control.
This can also help RPF personnel for safety of passengers and protection of railway properties. This hi-tech patrolling system will also increase the mobility and response time of RPF personnel and will be helpful in more visible policing.
This will also solve the passenger’s grievance quickly at station. RPF personnel have been trained and more Segway will be introduced as per the feasibility.
Introduction of this Segway system has been introduced in many important stations of the country. In ECoR jurisdiction, this facility has been introduced a few days back at Visakhapatnam. Introduction of this facility is second in ECoR and first in Odisha.
RPF receives reports of theft cases or snatching cases including cases of abusing, nuisance by passengers through twitter or through Security Helpline Number 182. These kinds of problems will be solved faster with the introduction of Segway.
