After Mumbai and Pune, Nashik will have a separate cyber police station, considering rising number of crimes through internet and other online media, city Police Commissioner Ravinder Kumar Singhal said on Thursday.
"The Police Commissionerate has decided to open a separate cyber police station soon," the commissioner told reporters.
He also listed various initiatives launched by the city police for citizens, including spreading awareness about wearing helmets for two-wheeler riders.
The top cop said the rate of crime in the city has come down due to the police cracking the whip on the "big criminals and slumlords."
He said the police will operate a dedicated "tourist police van" to cater to tourists visiting the temple town, which will be equipped with city maps and information booklets.
The van will quickly attend to the complaints of tourists, the officer said.
