Community police are playing a vital role to prevent crime and maintain law and order. From the grassroots level, they provide information that helps police arrest criminals quickly.
Community Policing is a concept that allows police and community to work together, aiming at making the society free from terrorism, militancy, stalking, drug abuse and child marriage.
