Af­ter Ra­j­nath rap, cops get soft-skill tips

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: Days af­ter Union home min­is­ter Ra­j­nath Singh blasted Delhi Po­lice for be­ing in­sen­si­tive, the top brass has now gone on a mis­sion mode to or­gan­ise soft-skill pro­grammes at the district lev­els.

Cops were sen­si­tised about giv­ing a pa­tient hear­ing to the com­plainants and in­ject­ing the feel­ing of safety and se­cu­rity but also to re­solve the prob­lems, by an ex­pert at Sarita Vi­har on Satur­day. A sim­i­lar pro­gram was also held for cops in south Delhi as well.

“The train­ing pro­gramme will be help­ful in im­prov­ing the be­hav­ioral skills of the po­lice of­fi­cers. The pro­gramme will cover nearly 500 po­lice per­son­nel in a month time whose job in­volves di­rect pub­lic in­ter­ac­tion,” said Chin­moy Biswal, DCP (south­east).

Dur­ing the launch of the Raf­taar pa­trol teams at the In­dia Gate on Tues­day, the home min­is­ter had said he had got to know about a few in­stances of po­lice per­son­nel mis­be­hav­ing with com­mon peo­ple, and asked the po­lice chief to take strict ac­tion against er­rant per­son­nel.

Po­lice com­mis­sioner Amulya Pat­naik is learnt to have given or­ders to the joint and deputy com­mis­sion­ers to en­sure that no com­plainant is ha­rassed at a po­lice sta­tion. The sta­tion house of­fi­cer will be moved out if a com­plaint is found to be gen­uine, a source said.
