The Mumbai police, which had put up a stall in a four-day long property expo (April 8 to April 11) at the MMRDA ground to showcase its achievements and educate housing societies about the minimum-security precautions taken to protect residents against criminal elements, is pleased to receive suggestions from citizens.

At the stall, the police had kept a book where visitors could write their opinions and remarks about the Mumbai police.

After the event, when the book was studied, it was found that the majority of the comments(left by 230 people)had praised the Mumbai police. Of course, some comments ranged from being bizarre to thought provoking.

The suggestion book has now been forwarded to the higher officials in the police. Joint Commissioner of Police, Law and Order, Rajnish Seth said that he had seen the book. “In fact, we always encourage suggestions from ordinary citizens. It helps us in many ways,” added Seth.

“We already have our dedicated interactive website, apart from the commissioner’s blog where we take constant suggestions from citizens and hold discussions with them. Apart from that, in forums like the Mohalla Committee, we also enlist suggestions from people,” Seth said adding, “we always take note of the suggestions and initiate action wherever needed.”

The police had also distributed pamphlets during the expo to make the citizens aware of various rules and regulations to be followed, while buying properties.
