Proac­tive Polic­ing

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

Acom­mu­nity po­lice ini­tia­tive, ‘ Com­mu­nity Led Ac­tion Pro­gramme by Po­lice (CLAPP)’ has been launched in Hy­der­abad, In­dia to cre­ate a se­cure en­vi­ron­ment for women. The polic­ing team will com­prise lo­cal com­mu­nity mem­bers and stu­dents who will work in co­or­di­na­tion with the po­lice depart­ment to make pub­lic ar­eas safer for women. In wake of in­creas­ing cases of ha­rass­ment against women in some ur­ban ar­eas, the ini­tia­tive has been taken by the In­ter­na­tional Foundation for Crime Preven­tion and Vic­tim Care (PCVC) in as­so­ci­a­tion with the Te­lan­gana State Po­lice. A model of com­mu­nity polic­ing, the project aims to en­cour­age all mem­bers of so­ci­ety to play a proac­tive role in pre­vent­ing crime.
