Hyderabad: Nizamabad District Police issued do’s and don’ts advisories on Tuesday to warn people to be alert when going on holiday during the Dasara festival. The police asked residents to check with the nearest police station beforehand when leaving on vacation to allow patrol teams to intensify patrols in their area.
Nizamabad Police Commissioner KR Nagaraju advised people to watch out for those hanging around residential settlements in the name of buying scrap metal. If a person was discovered moving around suspiciously, especially at night, residents should notify the police immediately, he said. As more and more gangs are targeting locked houses in the suburbs, residents staying in the suburbs of Nizamabad city need to exercise more caution before going on vacation. The veranda light must remain on until the owners return.
Neighbors should be asked to monitor their homes, especially in the morning and evening. The police commissioner asked residents to end their vacation as soon as possible and return to the residence. “Residents are always advised to keep expensive items, especially gold and silver ornaments, in the bank locker,” he said, advising residents to form night watch teams with the young from at least 10 colonies in a region.
Police patrol teams would also assist surveillance teams in the event of an emergency. Residents should also share their phone numbers with their neighbors to maintain regular contact with them until they return from their trip. In an emergency, residents should dial 100 to get the help they need, he said. If necessary, the benevolent associations of the colony can install surveillance cameras at the entrance of the locality to monitor 24 hours a day the people entering their colony.
