Modi calls for sensitivity in policing

New Delhi: Underscoring the need for sensitivity in policing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that police should establish links with local communities to curb the growing menace of radicalization of Indian youths by terror outfits including ISIS.

Addressing the concluding session of the three-day DGPs conference in Rann of Kutch, Modi called for setting up a flexible instructional framework which would facilitate the police to remain connected with the local communities.

Sensitivity should be a vital element of policing and a flexible institutional framework should be built, which can help imbibe sensitivity towards citizens in the police force,” Modi said.

Emphasizing the need to take local communities into confidence, Modi further asked the police officers to make use of modern technology for policing and curbing crimes.

It might be mentioned that the Police in various Indian states including Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Delhi have involved families and community elders to deradicalise a few youths.  Allegedly, the Middle-East terror body ISIS had tried to radicalize Indian youths.

The Prime Minister further asked the police to work jointly and interact with police from other states.

Calling upon the law and order forces to make effective use of digital technology and social media, Narendra Modi asked everyone to remain vigilant against the growing threat of cyber crimes.

Lauding the three-day conference, Narendra Modi said, organizing the conference testified the dedication and competence of the police force.

He called for a clear roadmap to implement the recommendations that emerged from the conference.

Modi’s address touched on a wide range of topics including tourism policing, disaster management and police training.
