"Badal said the specially created investigation wing would be separate from the police and it would undergo extensive training so that complaints are solved within a stipulated time-frame."
Chandigarh, July 7 - The Punjab government Monday decided on a separate cadre of officers for the community policing and investigation wings of Punjab Police.

Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal Monday directed the home department's principal secretary to create separate cadres of dedicated police officials with a long-term perspective for community policing and investigation wings, a spokesman said.

These officials will supervise 'Sanjh Kendras' (government service centres) and redressal of complaints on the 181 police helpline.

Badal said the specially created investigation wing would be separate from the police and it would undergo extensive training so that complaints are solved within a stipulated time-frame.

As many as 17,744 cases pertaining to women, children, economic and social problems have been solved by Sanjh Kendras this year.
