Officials in the police stations will be asked to make regular visits to the homes of senior citizens and inquire about their welfare. This will give a boost to community policing and also instill a sense of security among the elderly.
Additional Director General of Police Aseem Arun, meanwhile said that 240,000 senior citizens had sought police help in the past one year.
"Some people called more than once which indicates that their problems were not solved. We will now closely monitor such cases," he said.
