Kapurthala, October 23

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Harkamalpreet Singh Khakh on Saturday directed all officials to win public trust by delivering prompt justice to people and by addressing their complaints in a time-bound manner.

In a series of meetings with SPs, DSPs, SHOs and other heads of various branches, including Sanjh Kendras, EOW, women cell, highway patrolling, PCR motorcycle patrolling, traffic police, the SSP said all of them must infuse fear among criminals and strengthen the trust of public on the force.

He directed them to ensure that people do not suffer while getting heard and instead their issues must be settled at the level of police stations/police posts, which would help in gaining public faith.

He said the police have been adopting zero tolerance against corruption and if anyone was found to be indulging into this malpractice, will face severe action. Khakh also urged the general public that if any police employee in this district asks for bribe or if they have a tip-off about corruption, he or she can directly meet him and strict action would be taken against them.

The SSP reiterated that the police have already been dealing with drug peddlers, gangsters and other anti-social elements with a heavy hand and no one would be spared to ensure crime-free society. Khakh said the police have been making all-out efforts to maintain law and order in the city at any cost.

The SSP also directed the GOs to initiate such random checking drives in their areas, adding that the checking of inter-state travellers must be ensured at various check-points in the city, especially on highways.

He said special checking drives would be carried out in crowded places such as markets, railway stations, bus stands, and shopping malls to ensure foolproof security arrangements at these vulnerable points.

He asked all Station House Officers (SHOs) to tighten noose around anti-social elements by keeping a close tab over their activities besides ensuring monitoring of criminals on bail. Further, he asked the officials to intensify patrolling at public places as well so as to maintain the law and order situation in the wake of the festive season.
