Here’s wishing everybody a very happy New Year. I would also like to appreciate the entire force for their relentless service during the long festive season and congratulate them for their immaculate performance in seeing off the grand GangaSagar Mela which is considered to be having one of the highest footfalls in the country.
I also congratulate all citizens and men and women in Khaki for joining hands and making Traffic Safety Week a great success. Safe Drive Save Life initiative has already changed the present architecture of traffic management in Bengal and has significantly brought down road accidents.
In the First Anniversary edition of West Bengal Protector we are bringing forth a slew of initiatives that we rolled out across the state of Bengal to shield Human Trafficking. Swayangsiddha is leading the pack no doubt. For us, what is heartening is Bengal reports some of the highest recoveries and a humane approach.
Swayangsiddha, a youth-led, preventive action plan of the West Bengal Police, has been extremely successful in remote corners of the state, bringing about a socio-economic change.
Kanyashree the globally acclaimed, state-of-the-art project recognizes freedom and dignity of women folk and aims to give them more power by identifying their potential and caliber. The move identifies organized and positive forces within society to combat coordinated crime in the form of human trafficking and another social evil — child marriage.
West Bengal Police attempts to achieve steady and long-lasting solutions of not only problems related to Police interface but also in working out a healthy and nurturing Police Public relationship.
With newer challenges emerging and the society moving fast in all directions, we are committed to put in our best in building up professionalism and offering selfless and dedicated service to our citizens.
