Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit launched a community policing programme ‘Samavesh’ on 9th October 2023.
SAMAVESH KENDRAS are collectively managed by representatives of the community and police functionaries. These centres provide citizens with dignified access to police-related services and a forum to implement community-oriented programmes. Samavesh Kendras provide space for police-community partnership in crime prevention, grievance redress, victim assistance and information related to law, rules and procedures, civic rights and duties. It is an institutionalized effort to integrate community policing with the existing policing system. These centres have a built-in coordination mechanism with civil, judicial and non-government organizations. It is a three-tier system of policing in partnership with the community, managed through public committees with civil society representatives, specialists, NGOs, police functionaries and the civil administration.
This programme was conceived, designed and implemented under the guidance of Dr Pramod Kumar in partnership with Chandigarh Police and Institute for Development and Communication, Chandigarh.
