Police start community security drive
Jun 17, 2018-Nepal Police on Saturday launched a campaign called ‘Tole-Tole Ma Prahari’ (Police Patrols in local areas) with the objective of involving citizens to create safe and secure societies.
Inspector General (IG) of Police Sarbendra Khanal launched the campaign that would serve all local communities in the country.
Speaking at the event in Kathmandu on Saturday, IG Khanal said that the campaign aims to create safe and secure societies.
“Nepal Police works for the safety of citizens round the clock so that they can have sound sleep in a society free of crime and illegal activities,” said IG Khanal.
If citizens join the campaign and help the police, it would help reduce crime.
Nepal Police and other departments like Crime Investigation Department and Community Police will be taking forward the campaign to build a strong bridge connecting citizens with the police in order to eliminate crime and illegal activities.
Police would start the campaign by targeting local bootleggers and busting drug traffickers and consumers.
For the success of the campaign, the former Additional Inspector General (AIG) of Nepal Police Govinda Prasad Thapa suggested police officers must have 3E vision - Engineering for planning; Education; and Enforcement to implement the campaign.
The campaign would raise awareness of public through smartphone apps and other social networking technologies to provide information to public. The Home Ministry has said it would support the campaign with required resources. Home Ministry Spokesperson Ram Krishna Subedi said, “The effectiveness of the scheme would increase the faith of people in the police. Further, their co-operation would help to end illegal activities.”
The campaign will hold traffic rules instruction classes for students and public.
