On Thursday, a team of 186 volunteers took part in the launch of a  community policing drive which will help the city police with beat policing. These volunteers will work with seven police stations in the city.

“I will personally see that an MoU is signed within 15 days to make community policing a reality,” said Home Minister K J George.

The volunteers will be known as Area Suraksha Mitras and two-three volunteers will monitor each police beat (area).

ASM will start community policing in Ashok Nagar, Banaswadi, J P Nagar, Yelahanka, Madiwala, Jnana Bharati and Rajgopalnagar police station limits.
