Project Name: Community Policing Program (CPP)

FRD has been working in the area of Community Policing known as Police-e-Mardumi (Police with the people) to undertake decentralized activities to build effective police-community partnerships for effective service delivery, accountability and ensuring security based on democratic policing principles. The movement toward community policing has gained momentum in recent years as police and community people search for more effective ways to promote public safety and to enhance the quality of life in their communities. Community policing strategies vary depending on the needs and responses of the communities involved; however, certain basic principles and considerations are common to all community policing efforts. Community policing consists of two core components, community partnership and problem solving.
