On the occasion, the residents recalled that it took a lot of effort to get permission from the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) and Gurugram Police for setting up the police booth adjacent to the society. The new booth is the result of CSR initiative.
The booth was a long pending demand of the residents who had witnessed increase in criminal activities in the area. They said absence of police presence in the vicinity was the reason behind abysmal state of security.
Earlier in September, a police post opened in Sector 93 in the neighbourhood.
Praveen Malik, president of Sare Homes RWA, said, “Our sectors fall under the sector 10 A police station which is 10 km away from our society, hence the demand for a police post. With the support of police commissioner we were able to get sanction for the police post in September and now this police assistance booth. It will help in better policing in the sectors.”
The booth will benefit the police staff as well by providing them a shelter during rains and hot summer days and long winter nights. It is equipped with a table, chair, electricity, a fan and water facility. “This will strengthen the police-public partnership and help in curbing the crime rate in the vicinity,” said Malik.
