Bhubaneswar, April 20: In response to the intense heat wave gripping Odisha, the Commissionerate Police has unveiled a novel initiative to ease the discomfort faced by traffic personnel in the State Capital.

Inspired by Gujarat Police, they have introduced innovative cooling helmets designed to offer relief to officers stationed for prolonged periods under the scorching sun. On Saturday, the Commissionerate Police conducted a trial of air-conditioned helmets on an experimental basis in Bhubaneswar.

These battery-operated helmets, with a single charge lasting up to eight hours, circulate cool air to counteract the oppressive heat and humidity, allowing traffic police to carry out their duties more comfortably.

 Initially distributed in trial batches, this move aims to provide essential protection from the heat wave, ensuring officers can perform their responsibilities without suffering the physical strain of prolonged exposure to soaring temperatures.

Police Commissioner Sanjeeb Panda stated, "If the feedback is positive and the vendor can supply them in quantity, we will implement them as soon as possible. Budget is not a concern. We will use these helmets on an experimental basis for the next 3-4 days. Following a review of feedback, requirements, and other considerations, we will plan to procure these helmets in phases."
