Punjab police launches foot patrolling in all districts


In a bid to check criminal activities in the state, Punjab police has launched an initiative whereby police personnel will patrol designated areas on foot to keep a watch on anti-social elements. The initiative would ensure safety and security of women, children and senior citizens, and also build a bridge for people-friendly policing.

Foot patrolling involves beat patrolling on foot in a designated area which will be identified on the basis of criminal incidences, vulnerability, footfall in markets, strategic installations, educational, financial and religious institutions. It will also involve intelligence gathering and detection of crime.
