Policing has become very complex with increasing cyber crimes, financial frauds and insurgency issues. The State Government has extended its support towards modernising the force by upgrading its technological, logistic and infrastructural requirement, the message read.

Stating that the state government is committed to provide all its citizens safety and security, Patnaik said any one approaching the police should find comfort in police stations.
