Joint Commissioner of Police, Western Range, Madhup Tiwari today called for a better bonding between the resident welfare associations (RWAs) and police to improve the safety and security in Dwarka.
Tiwari was addressing the closing ceremony of “Cleaning Fortnight” campaign, which was organised by the Delhi Police in association with RWAs and NGOs of the area. Praising the campaign, Tiwari said that the success of the two weeks’ long cleaning drive has shown how effective police-community partnership can be in bringing a positive change in the society.
Speaking to City Spidey on how to improve security in residential societies, Joint CP said that the Prahari scheme, in which private security guards are trained to make them more confident, is an effective way that needs to be better utilised by RWAs.
He further added that the installation work of CCTV cameras by the Delhi Police at various places was still going on. “RWAs and market associations should also install CCTV cameras at the earliest to help us in improving the security of the area,” he said.
Earlier on Saturday morning, a mass cleaning drive was carried out by RWAs, NGOs and Delhi Police at different locations in the sub city. The programme was jointly organised by the Federation of CGHS, Dwarka and Dwarka Police. General secretary of Federation of CGHS, Dwarka, Sudha Sinha said, “Nine NGOs, several RWAs and managements of CGHS societies took part in the cleaning drive. It was a great initiative.”
NGOs, RWAs and individuals who actively took part in the campaign were also honoured at the occasion. DCP of Dwarka Anto Alphonse said, “The success of this joint effort has shown that residents and police working together as a team can greatly improve the policing in the area.”
