"Full marks to the one who handles your account," writes one Twitter user

New Delhi:  Gone are the days when the word police made one think of dusty files and outdated investigative techniques. Today, India's police departments are up-to-date and Internet-savvy. Not only do they address relevant issues like cyber safety, they also use innovative ways of doing it. Case in point, the Bengaluru and Mumbai police departments and their creative posters on online safety. While the Bengaluru City Police used a viral snake picture in its campaign against online fraud, the Mumbai Police used a clever Friends reference. Needless to say, they've both found many fans on social media.
