Sudo will work.
but i don't want to give the password.

sudo can be setup like that - ie you can configure one user (or group or ...) to be able to run a privileged command without having to give a password. You'll have to read the docs, I've only done it once and I can't recall how.

BTW - heed the advice to use visudo to edit the sudoers file. If you mess up sudoers then you may well find that you can't do anything, even as root ! I'll leave you to guess how I know that :-/
