The location of the patrol vehicles could be tracked from the police headquarter. The vehicle flagged off could accommodate a minimum of 10 police personnel. The patrol teams would help to stop threatening and extortion of truck and bus drivers by unknown miscreants along the National Highways, the chief minister said.

He appealed to the patrol vehicle teams to use the vehicles with proper maintenance, thinking it as their own property, as government’s property is public property.

The law and order situation of the state had significantly improved with the tireless day and night service from the police side and also with the support and cooperation of the public. As such, there is now no need for security convoys for transportation of oil tankers in the state, he added.

“Construction of 34 police stations along the Indo-Myanmar border from Behiang to Jessami had started. With all such initiatives the state would be able to check and stop illegal immigration and drugs trafficking along the border areas,” Biren said.
