Hyderabad: As part of modernisation of police stations, the Cyberabad Police has launched a Crime Vehicle Deposit Centre, adjacent to Pahadishareef Police Station, to deposit the seized and abandoned vehicles pertaining to crime cases of all police stations of Shamshabad Zone at one place.

A number of vehicles seized by respective police stations, pertaining to crime, accidents, and abandoned vehicles are kept in the vicinity of police station at front yard, backyard and other places giving a dismal look, without proper upkeep and maintenance. There are approximately 310 Four/Three wheelers and 1,090 two-wheelers seized which are lying in seven police stations of Shamshabad Zone. Whenever a vehicle needs to be tracked, public have to run from pillar to post and contact each and every police station which is a cumbersome process leading to confusion and chaos.

These vehicles dumped in the vicinity of police stations are giving a grim and clumsy look to the police stations and its surroundings and also posing traffic problems by covering the approach road to the police stations. Further, they are prone to security problems viz. theft of tyres, spare parts etc. besides getting exposed to rain, wind, dust resulting in rusting and complete damage to the vehicles, thereby the complainant/owner losing interest in claiming the vehicles. As there was no centralised database in place, the owners had to contact all police stations to track their vehicles causing immense inconvenience to them.

The seized vehicles were also creating parking problem for the staff. In view of the difficulties, as a modernisation initiative, the Cyberabad Police have identified and earmarked a six-acre police land adjacent to Pahadishareef Police Station, to deposit the seized vehicles of the seven police stations of Shamshabad Zone. The Vehicle Deposit Centre has different slots for depositing four, three and two wheelers (police station-wise) with enough space for easy movement of the vehicles. Each police station is allocated a separate area to deposit its seized vehicles, to enable identification of the vehicle with ease. An excel database is to be maintained enabling to easily track and identify the vehicles to produce in the court and return to the owners. Also, the unused place around the police stations is being utilised for planting saplings to initiate an environmental friendly gesture.

The CVDC is started by Shamshabad Zonal Police under the supervision of Deputy Commissioner of Police AR Srinivas.
