SanjhkendraJalandhar, September 20 (YP Bureau)

Dr. Pramod Kumar, Chairperson, Punjab State Governance Reforms Commission has said that the state government is adopting a two-phased strategy of empowering the Saanjh Kendras and community policing.

 

He was on a visit to Jalandhar, accompanied by Sh. S.K.Sharma, Additional DGP/Law & Order and Community Policing, as part of the state-level review of the community policing program in the state.

 

Dr. Pramod Kumar said that in the first phase, emphasis is on service delivery to the citizens. 20 services delivered by the police are covered under the Right to Service Act. In the second phase, emphasis will be on community involvement in policing, particularly in areas like matrimonial disputes, grievances and economic offences, he added.

 

“It is proposed to initiate counseling in matrimonial matters/economic matters at the Saanjh Kendras by involving members of citizen’s committee. The Saanjh Kendras would also become a hub for grievance redressal, including grievances against the police”, he said.

 

He said that the activities of  Saanjh Kendras will be expanded to community involvement in projects like drug de-addiction, youth clubs, visits to schools/colleges, counseling and grievance redressal. It is proposed that each Saanjh Kendra will initiate and execute one community-oriented project with the active involvement of the citizens and concerned department.             


Dr. Kumar and Sh. Sharma visited the Community Policing Suvidha Center (CPSC)/Saanjh Kendra of Sub Division North to review its working and interacted extensively with the members of the citizen’s committee associated with Saanjh Kendra. Smt. Parminder Beri, Advocate Ranjit Singh, Narinder Singh Saggu, Surjit Singh Bajwa and Rajinder Singh Miglani were present on the occasion.

 

Dr. Pramod Kumar later held a review meeting in the office of the Commissioner of Police with all the 5 inspectors heading the sub-divisional Community Policing Suvidha Centers (CPSC)/Saanjh Kendras, the Chief Community Policing Officer looking after the CPRC, Sh. Navjot Mahal, Additional DCP/Headquarters, who is nodal officer for community policing. Sh. S.K.Sharma and Sh. Gaurav Yadav, Commissioner of Police were also present on the occasion.
