Ludhiana, July 24

All 29 police stations of Ludhiana Commissionerate have geared up to take part in a competition in which cash rewards will be given to the most beautiful and well kept police station.

The first prize is of Rs 3 lakh, followed by Rs 1 lakh to the second winner and Rs 50,000 to the police station standing third. Stations have to fulfill almost 25 parameters, including location and access of police station, community orientation and public facilities, welfare of police personnel, crime prevention, management, transparency, condition of lock up, necessary facilities to inmates, condition of visitors room, well-built record room, etc.

Similarly, police posts will get Rs 1 lakh, Rs 50,000 and Rs 25,000, respectively. When Police Commissioner Rakesh Agrawal announced this competition in January 2021, he had also revealed that the non-performing police stations would be punished, including staff transfer. However, due to the lockdown, the competition could not be conducted. In March, the CP conducted a virtual meeting with the entire team and asked the police stations to fulfill all 25 parameters to win the prize.

The result is to be announced in the next week and a special committee, comprising senior officers and members from the general public, has been constituted to check all police stations, police posts and other cells of the city police.

Waryam Singh, ACP (Central), said, “We are working round-the-clock to beautify all police stations falling under the Central police division. Along with proper infrastructure for cops and visitors, due heed is being paid to the environment by planting saplings. At Kotwali police station, a special garden is being prepared,” the ACP said.
