PESHAWAR: The communities in K-P have a crucial role to play for the police to ensure a society free from crime and injustice, but they are unaware of the reforms police have brought about in this regard. This was stated in a press release on Tuesday.
A consultative meeting of police officials in Peshawar was held where the officials said there is a dire need to establish community oriented initiatives with the aim to benefit locals.
At the same time, the public also needs to be more cognizant of its duties and responsibilities to the state and provide support to state institutions like the police.
The meeting was part of the Ulasi Police project which is an awareness and advocacy campaign undertaken by the Center for Research and Security Studies. The project is part of a series of USAID Small Grants and Ambassadors’ Fund Program and is meant to strengthen the rule of law in the province by promoting significant policy reforms in the sector. The project specifically aims to include the voice of locals into policy making.
