Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik on 21st of February, 2017 pitched for the citizen’s participation for the effective crime prevention, saying just “patrolling” and “policing” were not enough.
He said that the residents can be the agents of change in the society. “In this complicated society, having variety of problems regarding law and order and crime, the role of the citizens is critical,” Patnaik said during the induction of 399 ‘Police Mitras’ for the South and the South-East districts of the city.
The citizens, who have good social record and are active in social welfare activities, have been selected by the Delhi Police as ‘Police Mitras’ after a detailed verification process. “It is a fact that police personnel cannot be present everywhere all the time. With the cooperation of residents and police, a residential colony can be made much safer,” he said.
