Police, CRPF working in perfect synergy for maintaining peace: DGP
Srinagar, Sep 19: There is a perfect synergy between Police and CRPF, who have been working and coordinating at different levels in tackling militancy / law & order situations, and the Unified Command structure under the chairpersonship of Chief Minister has proved very beneficial for the co-operation between Police, CAPFs and Army, said Director General of Police (DGP) Dr. S.P Vaid during an interaction with senior officers of J&K Police and the 48th batch of CRPF trainee officers at PHQ.
According to KNS, during the interaction, the DGP threw light on different policing initiatives of J&K Police for the maintenance of law and order and for better police- public relations.
He said that police community partnership groups is one such initiative in which the jurisdictional police officers have been directed to convene meetings of respectable citizens of their respective areas to know their problems and grievances.
He said that this mechanism has proved very fruitful as the issues pertaining to police department are redressed on spot while as other issues pertaining to other departments are conveyed to the respective head of the departments, thus police is acting as catalyst.
With regard to the cooperation between the two forces, the visiting training officers were told that police and CRPF have been working shoulder to shoulder for the last many years and mechanisms are in place to tackle the misuse of social media by anti-national/anti-social elements and to keep check on radicalization.
