Business Bureau,

SINCE last year, citizens have noticed much change in police behaviour which has improved a lot by way of treating complainants, explaining queries and handling difficult situations, meticulously. This result has been due to the enormous strides initiated with an aim to make the police more efficient and tech-savvy through a training centre – Nagpur Centre for Police Service Excellence (N-COPS Excellence), which is the brainchild of Commissioner of Police Dr K Venkatesham.

The N-COPS Excellence Training Centre was started at Patel Bungalow, near Chhaoni T-Point. From last one year 13,006 police staff got trained through 165 workshops on various police issues like cyber-crime, traffic, goal setting, time management, motivational workshops, crime related workshops etc.

Vidarbha Taxpayers Association (VTA) decided to appreciate such police-citizen friendly activities by Nagpur Police and thereby VTA team led by its President J P Sharma handed over the memento of appreciation and gratitude to Ravindrasinh Pardeshi, DCP, Head Quarters, Nagpur in the presence of Police Commissioner Dr K Venkatesham and Joint CP Shivaji Bodhke at N-Cops Excellence Centre, Nagpur.

Tejinder Singh Renu, Secretary of VTA said, “The men in uniform, Nagpur Police and Nagpur Traffic Police deserve more appreciation for the work they do 24x7. It iss very difficult for police administration to achieve 100 per cent satisfaction for all the citizens. But, the way Nagpur Police has produced results in past few years along with various citizen convenience schemes like Criminal Intensive Surveillance Project (CRISP), for women Bharosa and Dhamini Cell, Cyber Complaint Cell (C3), Buddy Cops, Drusti for senior citizens, Nagpur Traffic Club, N TraCs Excellence including Special Investigation Team (SIT) and more, certainly deserves admiration”.

Dr K Venkatesham said, “Such appreciation from public adds more responsibility on the shoulders of the police staff with aim to perform still better and Nagpur Police is determined to make our city safer with lesser accidents. However, we require equal support from the citizens to achieve such goals.”

Rahul Maknikar, DCP Zone III proposed the vote of thanks.
Prominently present from VTA were Hemant Trivedi and Amarjeet Singh Chawla, joint secretaries.
