Inspector General of Police Pujith Jayasundara today gave out his private mobile number for the public to call him if the police fail to respond to a serious complaint.
Jayasundara said that the public can contact him on 0718591002 if they feel there is something serious which the police department has failed to address.
“If there is only something urgent and important call me and you will get a response. Not a small matter and not something the police can look into. Call me if the police are corrupt or if the police fail to respond to something very serious,” he said.
Jayasundara said that his personal security officer will answer the telephone call and pass it to him.
The IGP said that the police department will take steps to ensure 70 percent of pending investigations on criminal matters are resolved by the end of this year.
He urged the police department to be considerate towards the concerns raised by the public and address those concerns. (Colombo Gazette)
