Punjab government will soon create a separate cadre for community policing in the state.
Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today directed Principal Secretary (Home) Jagpal Singh to create a separate cadre for community policing to ensure smooth functioning of 'Sanjh Kendras' in the state, an official release said here.
The Deputy Chief Minister said it was essential to have a separate cadre for community policing as frequent transfers and change of personnel disrupted the smooth functioning of the Kendras.
"Once the new cadre is formed, personnel posted in it would not be able to seek transfers to others wings of the police department," an official release quoting Sukhbir said.
He directed that this new cadre be constituted within a fortnight.
'Sanjh Kendras' is an e-governance project of government providing services so that police can be made citizen-friendly.
Meanwhile, Sukhbir also directed that a special task force be constituted under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary Sarvesh Kaushal to integrate the delivery model of all services given by the Kendras.
"This was done after feedback that due to the multiplicity of departments, there was sometimes delay in the delivery of the services", he said.
All back-end information will be digitised to make the work of the 'Sanjh Kendras' easier and more efficient, the release said.
At least 17,744 cases pertaining to women, children, economic and social problems were solved by 'Sanjh Kendras' during the current year, the release said.
