A new division had been established to curb organised crime in the country, the Police Department said today.

“The Organised Crimes Prevention Division (OCPD) located at No. 9, Mihindu Mawatha, Colombo 12 will work under the purview of IGP Pujith Jayasundara and Western Province Crimes and Traffic DIG Nandana Munasinghe and will be managed by a Superintendent of Police,” the Police said.

The Police said the division would investigate organised crimes across the country, particularly those involved in underworld gangs, weapons and drugs.

The division will operate 24 hours.

The Police said the general public could provide information regarding such crimes to 011-2326229 / 011-2451397 or dir.occib@police.lk. (Darshana Sanjeewa)
