Delhi roads are in the news for a long time not only for its high traffic chaos on almost every road but also due to fatal road accidents which have been relentlessly increasing every passing day. The core reason that has been concluded by traffic police personnel’s is the increased traffic violations in the Capital.

By keeping this issue in mind, Mr. Amulya Patnaik, Commissioner of Police, Delhi has formally launched the 'traffic sentinel scheme' as part of the National Road Safety Week-2018 celebrations held at Dogra Hall Auditorium, IIT Hauz Khas, Delhi on April 30, 2018.

On this occasion, as many as 319 Sentinels, who voluntarily offered their services, were appointed. They would help traffic police in regulating and managing the traffic in different parts of the city. They were given kits consisting of Fluorescent Jackets, Caps and Identity Cards to be used by them while assisting traffic police during duty.

In addition to this, the active users of 'Traffic Sentinel App' who accumulated points on the basis of videos/ photographs of traffic violations sent by them to Delhi Traffic Police were also felicitated by the CP. The first and second award winners namely Mr. Yogesh Dhawan and SC Kakkar were awarded with Hero motorcycle and Hero scooter respectively sponsored by Hero Moto Corp. The Third prize winners were given a cash reward of Rs. 15,000 each sponsored by IGL and the fourth prize winners were given cash reward of Rs. 10000 each sponsored by HMSI. The fifth prize winners were given a cash reward of Rs 1500 each sponsored by SIAM. The sixth prize winners were given PVR movie tickets for four persons, and the seventh prize winners were given a cash reward of Rs. 1000 each.

Speaking on this occasion of an innovative idea, Commissioner of Police, Delhi congratulated the traffic sentinels and inspired them to work in close coordination with Delhi Traffic Police to get ease in their work. The CP hoped that the scheme would extend further with more citizens chip in and make an impact on regulation and managing of traffic.

Mr. Dependra Pathak, Spl. Commissioner of Police, Traffic, Mr. P. Kamraj, Spl. Commissioner of Police, Law & Order (South) and Mr. Sandeep Goel, Spl. Commissioner of Police, Law & Order  (North) and other senior officers of  Delhi police and representatives from Hero Moto Corp, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Ltd., Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers & Synergie graced the occasion and appreciated the efforts.

This move shall also increase the bonding on better prospects between police personnel and common citizens of Delhi.
