3 Punjab cities to get police commissioners

CHANDIGARH: Amritsar, Jalandhar and Ludhiana will have police commissioner system. The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)

government has decided to introduce the most modern commissioner system in the three cities.

According to government officials, this system is required to meet their dynamic and complex internal security requirements because of fast-paced urbanization, huge floating populations and migration resulting in fluid demographic profile of residents and perpetual threat from the hostile neighbour that continues stoking problems from across the border.

Deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal, who also holds the home portfolio, and seniormost BJP cabinet minister Manoranjan Kalia said the commissioner system is in consonance with the democratic ethos and fast changing demographic profile and nature of crime in industrialised and high-tech emerging societies.

The system involves an active participation of senior and experienced police officers, headed by DIG-level officer, who would be entrusted with powers of executive magistrate with matching duties and accountability under the provisions of criminal procedure code. It would result in their accessibility and interface with public and transparency. The two leaders claimed that this would also ensure the single window system for licensing under Arms Act.

Sukhbir said that some other states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and recently Haryana have also adopted the commissioner system. Punjab, too, would join the mainstream in providing better policing to its big cities, he said, adding that the proposed system has no financial implications and would not require additional manpower as human resource mobilization would be done through internal structuring.
