Government continues to give high priority to maintaining communal harmony, peace, law and order. The state has long hostile international border, we are aware of the threats posed by cross border terrorism and shall continue to maintain vigil and strengthen our resolve to fight the forces that threaten peace, unity and integrity of our nation.
We shall continue our support to the modernisation of the police forces and the strengthening of the justice system. Despite the immense resource constraint, I am proposing the following for some of the schemes during 2017-18.
- Rs 75.00 crore: Infrastructure Facilities for Judiciary.
- Rs 15.00 core: Prevention of crime and improvement of Police Public Relations.
- Rs 34.77 crore: Crime and criminal Tracking Networking System.
There are number of Police Stations which are either in dilapidated condition or are functioning from buildings which have not been designed or built as Police Stations. 37 Some of the Police Stations buildings are also incomplete. Construction of 70 police stations shall be taken up as also completion of 23 incomplete buildings this year. This shall be carried out by the Punjab Police Housing Corporation with the support of HUDCO. I am sure that this shall go a long way in creating basic administrative set up for effective and efficient policing.
