Rabale cops plan more initiatives for residents
NAVI MUMBAI: The Rabale MIDC police’s initiative of reforming people through social empowerment project has got a huge response.
Hindustan Times had earlier reported that the police station has been conducting computer classes, tailoring classes and spoken English classes to make youth from economic backward classes job-ready. Several youth with criminal records have also been attending the classes.
Navi Mumbai police commissioner Prabhat Ranjan on Friday formally inaugurated the project in their newly constructed ground plus three building. Several senior officers from city zone I and II were also present at the function.
Ranjan said, “By providing free computer education and conducting skill development classes, Rabale MIDC police station is doing a wonderful job. Apart from bringing youth with criminal records to the mainstream, it will enable several poor women earn their livelihood.”
“We are planning to conduct free medical camps and blood donation camps in the new building. A library for students, who are attending the classes, will also be opened soon,” said Ramchandra Deshmukh, senior police inspector of Rabale MIDC police station.
The police have decided to install water purifier at 14 police stations so that the visitors can have clean drinking water. “It has been observed that on an average 8,000 people visit a police station. Some private companies are helping us in the project as part of their corporate social responsibility,” a senior police officer said.
