Public-Police dialogue held in Greater Noida

People residing in highrises located in Greater Noida held a dialogue with the senior officials on Saturday. During the discussion they talked about rising crime against women and security in the area.

The discussion was held during an interaction event, 'Police, Public Interaction 2019, Greater Noida' in the city based school’s auditorium. The event was aimed to initiate dialogues between the residents and the local police. During the discussion, residents shared their grievances along with the activities of the police, like FIR was not registered, they did not get back their valuables and many more.

“Every day nearly two snatching incidents are being reported in the area. We are living in fear,” said a resident present in the meeting. 

Replying to the issue, Ranvijay Singh, SP (Rural) assured that one or two representatives from each society will be added in the police WhatsApp group so that direct communication can be held.

“Mostly three crimes are reported from this region--snatching, robbery, and vehicle theft. The local police is working with other neighboring police to control the situation. We have successfully cracked many cases of robbery and loot,” Singh said.

Singh  also added that local police will chalk out a plan against criminals and will ensure the safety of the residents. “There activities and mobilities would be observed and a better plan will be executed to nab them,” Singh added.

Apart from grievances, people also talked about how the city can be made a crime-free place, where both, children and women, feel safe.

The police-public dialogue was organsied by the Noida Extension Flat Owners Welfare Association (NEFOWA) where they invited Alok Kumar, FedAOA President of Ghaziabad, as one of the guests.

“See, from the last few months the situation has become worse here. Therefore, the NEFOWA team decided to do something to have the attention of both, the people and the police. Also, being the resident of the area it is our responsibility to raise such issues and help the police. A healthy discussion held today and guidelines would be set up for further action. If required, NEFOWA will again organise a similar police-public dialogue,” said Abhisekh Kumar, President of NEFOWA.
