Community policing creates partnerships between law enforcement agency and other organizations like government agencies, community members, nonprofit service providers, private businesses and the media. The media represent a powerful pattern by which the police can communicate with the community. Community policing recognizes that police cannot solve every public safety problem alone, so interactive partnerships are created. The policing uses the public for developing problem-solving solutions
District Police Bhakkar is on the way forward to facilitate the public on the priority basis. For this purpose District Police Bhakkar has established a media information Center in the DPO office Bhakkar to facilitate the Media Personals and public for daily updates and on going projects of Bhakkar Police.
The District Bhakkar Police believes in smart and efficient policing for the smooth functioning of a society. In order to turn our dream of facilitating the public into a reality, we have taken the following measures:
Masalhati Committee was established by Rai Ijaz Ahmad (Ex DPO Bhakkar) during 2011. The main aim of forming this committee is to provide assistance to the police staff to reduce the crime rate and take appropriate actions against the offenders. The members of this committee are 12 to 16 per police station. Masalhati committee investigates the cases along with the police staff for providing immediate assistance to local public for their relevant problems.
Thikri Pahra is working with the assistance of patrolling police to control crime in the District Bhakkar.
Citizen Police Liaison Committee
The foundation of Citizen Police Liaison Committee aims to establish a peaceful and crime free society, to eliminate the gaps between police and public, and to upgrade and modernize the police services. It is a non-political statutory body representing all segments of the society. It is working under section 168, Police Order 2002, and is coordinating with the district police in efficient community policing. As a crime free society is not possible without the help and cooperation of public, we highly appreciate the public efforts towards a peaceful community. The committee consists of 25 eminent citizens from all walks of life serving as a think-tank for the Community of Bhakkar.
