Students get hang of police life

- College-goers on outreach programme

Twelve teams of students from Patna Women’s College are touring police stations in the capital to get a feel of the cops’ style of working.

The girls want to know about the difficulties police face on duty every day. The college-goers even want to make a few changes in the police stations to make life better for the cops. College principal Marie Jessie said the initiative was a part of the institute’s outreach programme.

On Tuesday, one of the 12 teams visited Kotwali police station and was greeted by director-general of police Abhayanand. The top cop, who also runs a coaching institute, explained the visitors the ways of policing.

“He (Abhayanand) was very helpful. We had a prejudice about cops but now we feel that policemen are like common people, who work under a lot of pressure. After this tour, I will never be afraid of visiting any police station,” Shipra, a student of the college said after visiting the Kotwali police station.

Principal Jessie said the students were from physics and Bachelor of Computer Application department.

“There are 12 teams comprising six to seven students each. The police are helping us in our outreach programme. It is a three-day affair, which started on Tuesday. The students would visit at least 12 police stations in Patna to get an idea about policing. Also, if a police station is found dirty, the students will place dustbins. A plantation drive would be carried out to make police stations a pleasant work place,” the principal said.
