Rajnath Singh urges cops to bridge trust deficit with public, improve efficacy of policing

Thiruvananthapuram: Home Minister Rajnath Singh Wednesday asked the police to bridge the existing "trust deficit" between them and local communities as it will help enhance the efficacy of policing in the country.

"It is very important for the police to bridge the trust deficit that exists between the police and local communities. I always believe that the efficacy of any police force lies in its relationship and engagement with the local community," he said addressing a national conclave on community policing in the Kerala capital. Singh also pitched for a nationwide action plan for community policing, saying there is an urgent need to come up with a technical architecture connecting local police stations with the local community.

The Home Minister said the initiative should be the guiding principle for police forces to go about in the future and assured his Ministry will take "positive steps" in this regard. "While community policing should be the guiding principle of our police forces, I must say that building relationships should be our prime focus. I am of the firm opinion that community policing should be institutionalised in our policing system.

"There is an urgent need to come up with a technical architecture connecting the local police stations with the local community. A nationwide action plan for community policing and community contact needs to be formulated," he said.
