Delhi Police, in collaboration with GE volunteers and United Way of Delhi, a non-profit organisation, on Saturday kicked-off a special training programme for its police force on citizen-centric communications and behaviour.

Speaking on the occasion, Delhi Police Commissioner B.K. Gupta said: “Each interaction with citizens is an opportunity for us to make them feel secure and generate trust and confidence in our capabilities. This is the crux of our citizen-centric initiatives.”

The six-hour weekly programme, “The Citizens as Stakeholders in Policing,” will begin with a batch of 30 personnel and cover over 300 of them over the next three months.

Under this initiative, GE volunteers will train the participants on verbal and non-verbal communication, stress management, emphatic behaviour, listening skills, questioning in a non-threatening manner and use of body language to build trust.

GE volunteers' leader Sanjeev Jain said: “We had successfully conducted a similar initiative with the Cyberabad police last year and feel honoured to now extend the training modules to Delhi Police. We look forward to sharing some of our learnings from the corporate world with Delhi Police and also learn from their experience.”

Describing the programme as an initiative to bring about significant positive changes in the community, NGO chairman Siraj A. Chaudhry said: “This effort to become more citizen-centric along with GE volunteers and the United Way of Delhi is laudable.”
