Jalandhar 18 September (Jaswinder Azad)- At a time when the distance between the police and public is widening, community policing (CP) can bridge the gap by making the former not only friendly and citizen-centric, but harness the resources of the community and ensure that policing is done with consent.

She informed, “Once registered, the user can send an alert by pressing the soft button ‘HELP’ on the home screen. As soon as the help button is pressed, it will be send an alert to the Police Control Room as well as their relatives/friends. Application and service should be used only on distress while false reporting and misuse of any kind will be punishable under law.”
Commissioner of Police, Sh. PK Sinha, IPS also interacted with the students in order to forge a better bond and bridge the trust deficit between the police and the public. Sh. PK Sinha said, “Community policing is an initiative to forge a partnership between the police and the public in order to help society take an active part in redressal of issues, which include traffic violations and congestion, child labour among others.” He said, “When communities work with the police, citizens understand the challenges, resource crunch and the workload of police, creating empathy for them and the respect of the citizens.”
Mr. Harpreet Singh (Vice Chairman, CT Group) welcomed the dignitaries and appreciated the initiative of Shakti App and Community Policing. He said, “Working hand-in-hand with the police will make the antisocial elements become weaker. It also prevents self-appointed leaders blocking the participation of citizens at the beat level.” S.
