To make Dwarka safer, police have started conducting random patrols of neighbourhood parks after sundown. This measure was taken after discussions with RWAs and local residents, who have repeatedly complained about open drinking and hooliganism in parks near residential pockets.
Area ACP Rajendra Singh and his team have involved RWAs and local residents to make the system more effective. Recently, recce was done for Sectors 7, 17, 22, 23.
SHOs are sharing the pictures of these surprise visits on various social media groups to create awareness about the initiative.
The ACP said to City Spidey, “The move is quite effective, and we are involving people of the societies near the parks. Yesterday, we carried out the drive in Sector 22, and took local residents and guards with us. They are helping us to locate shady places.”
As expected, residents have welcomed the initiative.
SS Mann, vice-president of Sukh Dukh Ke Sathi, and a member of the management of Sadbhavna Apartments in Sector 22, said, “This is a welcome move by the police — involving the local residents during the visits. It would not only help in keeping the area safe, but also build a good rapport with the police.”
Secretary of Media Apartments in Sector 7, PP Wangchuk, said, “The initiative would increase public participation and make community policing more effective.”
