By Zahiruddin

CHITRAL: In order to bridge the gap between the public and police, Public Liaison Councils ((PLCs) have been established in 83 village councils of Chitral which are envisaged in enhancing community engagement in order to make policing effective.

DPO Chitral, Abbas Majeed Khan Marwat, while talking at a seminar organized on ‘community policing’ here on Thursday, stressed on bridging the gap between the police and public through PLCs.

He said that policing and community engagement compliment and supplement each other and will result at building confidence of community on the police force by redressing their grievances and bringing about tangible change in ‘thana culture’.

He said that Police was accountable to the public and the process of accountability will be carried out through the councils who will make it more effective while the sense of accountability will act as catalyst to improve the efficiency of the force.

He said that PCS will be established in the rest of the 17 village councils shortly while special measures will taken to sensitize and strengthen the members of the councils to achieve the goas and objectives.

Speaking on the behalf of the community, the former tehsil nazim Sartaj Ahmed Khan eulogized the efforts of district police chief for taking concrete steps to bring the police force community friendly.

He said that the hectic efforts of the district police in providing relief to the flash flood affected people and the earthquake is the practical step which has aggrandized the force.
