Village meetings to be held to identify issues relating police
RAJAHMUNDRY: After the success of Jana Mythri in West Godavari and Krishna districts, the East Godavari police have launched the programme at Indukurupet of Devipatnam mandal in Rampachodavaram Agency area.
Speaking to mediapersons on Saturday, Mahesh Bhagawat, DIG, Eluru Range, along with G. Srinivas, SP, East Godavari, and Vikram Jeet Duggal, ASP, Rampachodavaram, said that each police station would adopt one or two villages.
The station house officer would allot one head constable or constable to the particular village.
The constable would then take up the problems relating to policing and bring the matter to his higher-ups in the police station concerned.
“Our constable will be the resourceperson and he will settle petty cases within his limits.
The remaining cases will be referred to police station concerned. The station house officer will be the in charge of the programme,” said Mr. Bhagawat.
In the first phase, village meetings would be organised to identify issues relating to police in which the SI, the CI, the Additional SP, the SP and the DIG would participate.
The police would regularly monitor all the villages through Jana Mythri and non-policing issues would also be settled with the help of revenue and other officials.
Later, the DIG conducted a review meeting on Jana Mythri with police officials in Rajahmundry Sub-Division headed by DSP D. Janaki.
