Community Policing to be national initiative: HM

Below is a summary of the announcement made by Home Minister yesterday on Community Policing. We would like to seek your additional inputs on how you believe community policing can play a role in improving law, order in your area. Also at the Station level, how can the SHO and citizens work together.

The Union Home Minister Shri Rajnath Singh has called upon the police force to make use of technology smartly and sensibly as an instrument of peace as well as a force multiplier. He was inaugurating a National Community Policing Conclave at Kovalam near Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala today. The Minister said that the social media can tremendously empower the police in fostering policecommunity relationship, taking it to a new heights of communication and building of trust between the police and the people. He however cautioned that the use of social media by the security personnel needs to be done in a controlled and disciplined manner.

Shri. Rajnath Singh said that while community policing should be the guiding principle of police forces, prime focus should be given to building relationships. The police need to work hard every day to earn that level of trust and respect which helps them in bridging the gap between police and public, he added.

Stating that police force should act in close association with the community, the Union Home Minister opined that community policing system should be institutionalised in the police force across the country in an effort to bridge the gap between the law enforcing agencies and the public. The efficacy of any police force lies in its relationship and engagement with the local community.

He noted that internet and social media have completely changed the way policing was done in the country. more

Confused, Police is riddled with corruption under State politicians and the Centre says it will turn the tables without any empowerment just by community policing! Whoever says that please ask him to show us his mettle by reinstating the good police officers appointed by EC in West Bengal? Have I lost my mind even to think of such ideas... We get is ultimate corruption and sow the seeds to lose Bengal to ISIS if we allow the state to appoint so. See the HC judgment on corruption charges in appointment of Green Police in Bengal...its cancel all appointments! First make law and order Centre and State subject, because today they threat national security, OR at least make police appointments independent as we have in judiciary, and then think. more  
Are you serious? Have you ever dealt with police in Bharat? I don't think so. more
