Nepal Police has launched the 'Police, My Friend' campaign from today.
The campaign, which also figures in the government's policy and programme statement for fiscal year 2016/017, has come into force in all the 75 districts.
With this, all the community-focused activities and programmes of Nepal Police will be incorporated in the 'Police, My Friend' concept.
The main objective of the campaign is to maintain law and order through the prevention of crime, accidents and social anomalies, rendering the police public-friendly by means of community contact at the community level and at schools throughout the country.
Launching the campaign, Home Minister Shakti Bahadur Basnet expressed that the campaign will contribute to enhancing the role the police has to fulfill in society and its role of institutionalising the norms and values of change.
