Popular and Community Police
The Popular and Community Police at Khartoum State and though a total of 17 years of a history full of dedication and giving, continued to provide security to various community sections through a number of focal areas. The most important of these focal areas is the Comprehensive Security Spreading, a project that keeps continually renewing itself and where the Popular and Community Police achieved various successes. The most important of these are:
Formation of community committees as an essential factor in mobilizing community effort to materialize the security process. This is reflected in the reinforcement of the role of community committees in raising awareness on security and decreasing crime rates through the active participation of community in guarding at night (Ribat). The increasing role of community committees in building up a true partnership between the police and community proved to be vital in enhancing the security process, in ensuring a raised awareness among citizens and in reinforcing the fact that security is a responsibility of all.
There is a number of projects undertaken by the Popular and Community Police at Khartoum State which will be presented through this brief. There are also aspirations and future projects that will be pointed to as well as some problems and obstacles facing these projects.
