PANJIM: While no security threat is foreseen during Ganesh Chaturthi, the police is preparing to ensure safety during the festival and has chalked out elaborate security arrangements. The police force has reminded Sarvajanik Ganesh mandals and residential societies/colonies of their responsibility asking them to undertake security measures too.

In a security advisory issued by the North district police, Sarvajanik Ganesh mandals have been asked to install CCTV cameras and firefighting equipment and to maintain proper access and illumination at pandals. The associations have also been instructed to display a board outside the venue barring devotees from carrying combustible articles inside. To avoid traffic congestion, proper parking zones are earmarked.

“Furnish list of volunteers along with their details, contact number, etc to local police station and appoint at least one volunteer among this to act as a liaison officer, so as to coordinate with the police. Display contact numbers of local police, ambulance, fire service, police control room, for instant help during emergency,” the notice further states. 

Similarly, residential societies/colonies are advised to keep vigil during this period as many families go to their native place to celebrate the festival. The district police have urged these families to not leave valuables while they are away. In case they are leaving their premises, the families are advised to inform the nearest police stations so that patrolling is carried out till their return. Among other suggestions, police have insisted for CCTV cameras while also mentioning that it should remain operational even when the houses are locked.
