In order to maintain security, safety and to involve public as part of policing, the local police department has initiated Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in Dwarka.

According to Surender Kumar, deputy commissioner of police (South West District), a total of 11 societies have been taken under the scheme as of now and 28 more have been identified for the same.

Under the scheme, police is making community aware of how to keep security tightened and how to face odd situations. Installation of lights in the common area are being done, installation of CCTV cameras is being encouraged.

Besides, periodic meetings and counsellings are also being organised in the societies.

While talking to City Spidey about this scheme, Kumar said, "We are promoting community policing and the result is quite enthusiastic! We have already started it in several societies across Dwarka. Under this, the RWA or management of the societies with one person from each family have been given the responsibility to form a WhatsApp group. In the group, the beat officer of the area has also been included. This has given a direct access and involvement of people and police for the security and safety across the area."

Sri Ram Apartments (Sector 4), Sarv Sanjhi Apartments, Azad Hind  Apartments, Sukh Sagar Apartments (Sector 9), Shakuntalam Apartments (Sector 10), Sanskriti Apartments (Sector 19), Chitrakoot  Apartments and Dream Apartments (Sector 22), New Kanchenjunga Apartments and Harmony Apartments (Sector 23) and Pink Apartments (Sector 18) and Nasirpur (Pocket-6) are the societies which are currently under the scheme.
