BRITISH HC VISITS UK-FUNDED COMMUNITY POLICING PROGRAMME IN THE NORTH
During his visit to the North this week, British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka John Rankin visited the Puthukkudiyiruppu Police Station to talk about the community policing programme, funded by the British High Commission, which has made a difference to community-police relations in the area.
The community policing programme, implemented in collaboration with The Asia Foundation, focuses on building relations between local police personnel and the communities in which they serve.
The programme, initiated in 2012, works with 142 police stations across all 9 provinces, covering a third of police stations across the country.
