A group of five persons from the Rotary District 1030 in the United Kingdom, as part of the Group Study Exchange programme, paid a visit to the Rotary District 3201, Coimbatore, and the city police to learn about the functioning of the police system.
The team that met the Police Commissioner, C. Sylendra Babu, was led by Alan Murray and it included Toni McKie, Morag Kerr, Paul Bolton and Emma Simpson.
The team was keen to know the policing systems and administrative practices. The policing system instituted by the British has been developed to keep pace with changing times.
The team enquired about the functioning of the all women police concept and also about the issues that come to the all women police wing. This gave an insight into the nature of problems faced by Indian women.
The team also visited the dog squad and enquired about the training imparted to pups in sniffing and tracking. The team was also appreciative of the weekly interaction with the student community which helps in establishing a friendly relationship with the public.
