HYDERABAD: Stating that there was a serious trust deficit between the public and the police in the country, Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu today stressed on the need for policing with a human touch.
Addressing Indian Police Service probationers of 70 RR (Regular Recruit -2017 Batch) at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy here, Naidu said, “There is a serious trust deficit between the public and the police in our country. Police are seen as the last option by the people. The general saying is that one is lucky if one is not required to visit a police station. Instead, police should emerge as the first option to go to in case of any problem.”
He asked the young officers to create such a situation and said it was possible if policing was done with a human touch. (AGENCIES)
