Bangalore City Police has partnered Havas Worldwide Digital Matrix to build ‘community programme through social media’.

“This is an exercise in generating awareness among citizens and will assist Bangalore City Police in building a social media community via social media platforms like FaceBook, Twitter and YouTube,” said Lalrokhuma Pachau, Karnataka Director General of Police.

This community engagement programme will also help the Bangalore Police to showcase and make citizens aware about their community initiatives, which are Elders Helpline (1090), Children Helpline (Makkala Sahayavani - 1098) and women helpline (Vanitha Sahayavani -1091).

“All these initiatives are there to attend to the problems of various Bangalore citizens and a social media platform will augment these,” said Jyothiprakash Mirji, Commissioner of Police, Bangalore city.

Commenting on the association with Bangalore Police, Ravi Shankar, Chief Executive Officer, Havas Worldwide Digital Matrix, said: “As the community expands and disperses, social media comes across as a great platform to keep the community closer.”

“The company will be assisting Bangalore Police to build their own team of social media community managers and will help them serve people better,” he added.
