Jammu and Kashmir DGP S P Vaid today said there was “perfect” synergy among the various security forces in tackling militancy and maintaining law and order in the valley.
The state police chief also assured that mechanisms were in place to tackle misuse of social media by anti-national and anti-social elements, and to keep in check radicalisation of the youth.
“The Unified Command Structure, under the chairpersonship of the chief minister, has proved to be very beneficial for cooperation among the police, the CAPFs (central armed police forces) and the Army,” the Director General of Police (DGP) said here.
“There is a perfect synergy between the police and the CRPF, who have been working shoulder-to-shoulder for many years and coordinating at different levels to tackle terrorism and law and order situations,” he said.
The DGP was speaking at an interaction between senior state police officers and the CRPF’s 48th batch of trainee officers at the police headquarters.
During the interaction, Vaid also highlighted the initiatives taken by the Jammu and Kashimr Police for maintaining law and order and better police-people relations.
Police-community partnership groups is an initiative in which officers have been directed to convene meetings with “respectable” citizens to understand problems and grievances of people in their areas, he said.
This mechanism has proved to be very fruitful as issues pertaining to the police department are redressed on the spot and those related to other departments are conveyed to their respective heads, the DGP said.
Vaid said that the initiative taken by the DG CRPF and Director of the CRPF academy to hold the interaction was praiseworthy and hoped that such events will be chalked out in the future for the benefit of trainees.
