A citizen forum for better communication
Meanwhile, the Police Commissioner also shared the department's plan to set up a citizen forum. This platform will be developed as means to ensure clear and direct communication among the police, civic body (BMC), BEST along with other departments of the administration and representatives of the public.
As per the reports, the forum will be created at two-different level, one for regional communication and another one at the zonal level for a better reach. These forums will support around 60 people at the zonal level and about 15 representatives at the regional level.
For the proper functioning of the new setup, a bill is being drafted to list the role of the citizen forum. This list will also enumerate the ways in which the government departments are expected to address the issues raised by public.
