Tiruverumbur and Kallakudi are the two police stations identified by the Tiruchi Rural police authorities under the 'Community Outreach' programme that is aimed at bridging the gap between the men in khaki and the public.

Field-level personnel in the ranks of constables and head constables attached to both police stations have been entrusted with the responsibility of interacting with the locals of mother villages earmarked for each one of them under this ambitious initiative. The initiative has been put in place in accordance with an instruction from the State police headquarters. Under the 'Community Outreach' initiative, a police station in a rural area and the other one in close proximity with Tiruchi City police has been chosen for implementation as a pilot measure with respect to Tiruchi district.

While Kallakudi was chosen for its location in rural area, Tiruverumbur was identified as it was on the outskirts of Tiruchi city with numerous residential localities proliferating besides having under its jurisdiction a slew of industries.

Constables and head constables attached to the Tiruverumbur and Kallakudi police stations have already been given a briefing about the initiative and their assigned tasks. Police sources said 16 mother villages falls under the Tiruverumbur police station limits, while 13 comes under the jurisdiction of Kallakudi police station.

Notwithstanding its close proximity with the Tiruchi City Police Commissionerate, the Tiruverumbur police station has a vast jurisdiction encompassing numerous villages and hamlets. The mother villages falling under the jurisdiction of Tiruverumbur police station include Koothaippar, Krishnasamuthiram, Arasangudi, Keelakurichi, Ellaikudi, Panayakurichi and Vengur.

In addition to covering mother villages, the constables and head constables have also been assigned to cover a cluster of hamlets falling under the limits of both police stations. The constables and head constables have been directed to visit the mother villages and hamlets at regular intervals and interact with the village elders, prominent persons and village heads to also ascertain the non-policing issues which if left unattended for long could eventually trigger a law and order problem, said Superintendent of Police, Tiruchi, Ziaul Haque.

Information network

Every constable has been given a mobile number which they would share with the villagers to get to know any incident connected with law and order, crime or non - policing ones swiftly. They would also gather information pertaining to previous law and order issues if any in the past in the respective villages and the ways they were tackled besides collecting inputs about anti-social elements and potential trouble mongers, said SP Ziaul Haque.

The constables would also bring to the notice of the authorities concerned pending non-policing issues which could snowball and cause law and order problem if they were not redressed, said the sources.

Detailed profile of the respective mother villages would be maintained by the constables and head constables as a ready reckoner at the station.

The community outreach programme is also aimed at widening the information network by maintaining constant liaison with general public to ensure order, said the SP.
