Public Action Committee (PAC) of Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) held a meeting with Dimapur Urban Colonies Chairmen’s Federation (DUCCF), Dimapur District Village Council Chairmen’s Association (DDVCCA) and the Dimapur Police Commissionerate officers here on Wednesday. 

According to a statement by PAC, the sole purpose of the meeting was to briefly highlight the activities undertaken by the committee so far in tackling illegal collection of money in Dimapur and the need and importance of community policing. Leaders from DUCCF and DDVCCA shared their problems as well as experiences in dealing with social evils in the society. The meeting felt that it was important and necessary to adopt ways and means to support and help the police because the latter alone could not deal with bad elements. There were numerous unreported cases of social evils taking place and, unless the community participated, the cops alone would not be able to contain the menace, the meeting stated.
Assistant commissioner of police (ACP), who took part in the meeting, pointed out the limited strength of the police in the city. Nevertheless, he claimed they were tirelessly working to their best. 
Stressing the importance of COPS (community-oriented policing scheme) implemented elsewhere, the ACP said the police and community should work together to prevent crimes by maintaining good communication with each other. He also spoke about sunset policing and neighbourhood watch, in which the community played a vital role, but also cautioned the public never to take law into their hands. 
He called for using advanced technology to “our benefit” by being in close contact with one another. By adopting good community policing system and active participation of community members, a safe environment could be created, he remarked.  Officer in-charge of West police station spoke on IPCs and CRPCs.
Seeking support and participation of the two civil organisations, PAC leaders suggested that implementing community policing could be contemplated in the near future. They said more meetings would be convened to create better awareness on “our social responsibilities”. They also informed the participants that a meeting with GBs would be held soon.
