According to the Minister, senior officers of Delhi Police visit their areas on a pre-decided time and hear public grievances at neutral venues like auditoriums, schools, public parks, etc.
During the year 2016 (up to 30th September), a total of 3186 such programmes were held, 51887 complaints were attended and 10273 grievances were redressed, the Minister stated.
Under ‘Yuva’ initiative, programs such as workshops, sports activities, and vocational trainings, etc., are being organized to channelize the energy of young adults and children from the underprivileged sections of the society to make them productive members of the society and to prevent them from moving towards crime and drugs at an early age.
Moreover, according to the Minister, grassroots level officers of Delhi Police have been instructed to hold meaningful dialogue with all sections of the society. Officials of Delhi Police have been sensitized to be sensitive and courteous to people in day-to-day dealings.
