Dr. Vaid was addressing police officers of Jammu Province through video conferencing from Police Headquarters (PHQ) here today. He said that improvements in professional efficiencies and accountability at grass root level would garner public cooperation in our efforts in different areas of policing. Behavioural change in the investigation field needs to be focussed to harvest people’s cooperation, he added.
DGP said that in order to ensure security of the people in the state, coordinated efforts are taken to tackle the activities of anti-social elements and criminals. There should be no laxity in the fight against terrorism and drug abuse, which is our major concern for maintaining peace and order. JKP with its conviction has been fighting against the menace of terrorism and we have to involve the common people in this fight, besides addressing their difficulties. Good public rappo has been paying dividends and the force has succeeded in handling the situations.
Dr. Vaid stressed to enhance surveillance in the border areas and put in place efficient measures for the security of the people. Frequent visits by the senior officers to Thanas and police posts should be ensured to improve their functioning and standards of discipline. Activities of unscrupulous elements should be monitored and dealt under law. Input sharing with other wings and agencies for making required measures should also given due attention, said the DGP.
Dr. Vaid emphasised the officers to ensure implementation of welfare schemes for the personnel deployed in field. He said that in order to keep the morale of Jawans high, their living and working facilities needs to be enhanced.
