“We have been receiving many complaints from the public that a number of police stations are not taking steps to resolve their complaints. We have also been informed that there are several inefficient projects carried out by the police department”, DIG Navaratne said.
 

“We will make surprise visits to such police stations. The main objective is to tackle inefficiency in the police department.  Our theme is a people friendly prestigious professional police service. We will work and reduce inefficiency in the police”, he said.  
 

The public relief office at the Police Headquarters which was set up on the initiative of IGP Balasuriya receives most of the complaints about shortcomings and negligence caused by police stations.
 

The committee will take steps to evolve a mechanism to provide a satisfactory service to the public and also to reduce shortcomings in the police that cause hardships to the public, DIG Navaratne added.

    Police needs to be restructured from very top to bottom. Not only from below DIG level and below.

    If political interference is stopped, everything will fall in line!

    This is v.good move. now we can see smooth traffic flow in the evenings.. parking not allowed is v. good move..
    Bus drivers and trishawa drivers also should be made deciplined.. flyover should be resricted to cars+vans..
    trishaws with small engines find difficult climb flyovers....

    Earlier the system was set to check HORA - POLICE
    now the opposite......POLICE-HORA

    Good move. But, IGP will have to work hard to transform the current police force into a professional police service.

    If he goes, and if the police is not partial, re-structuring is no need.

    Hope it will work. When I called the 119, for an emergency it took 3 hours to come, and also when my house was robbed I loged the complain at 8.30 am and they cops visited only at 7.30 Pm.

    Why we laways negative on them.Allow them to reconstruct and rebuild police for a beter service.

    Milaroy Monday, 27 September 2010 11:04 AM

    Can you also teach them how to talk to people, These cops do not know how to talk to people and teach them some good ethics as well.

    Ibnu Batuta Monday, 27 September 2010 11:07 AM

    First teach the police how to deal with the public humanely.

    Roshan DW Monday, 27 September 2010 11:18 AM

    Something has to happen to the Police dept.

    Police Hora Monday, 27 September 2010 11:27 AM

    Go for an overseas trip & see the police development. To make a complain to Mirihana police 4hrs have to wait.

    Senkadagala Putha Monday, 27 September 2010 11:57 AM

    I have seen many Police stations around the world and had some work them too. Sri Lanka is having the worse Police decipline. First SL Police should know how to talk to the Public in front of Public..that is the first lesson that you should learn.

    POLICE SHALL DO A BETTER SERVICE IF THERE NO INTERVENTION FROM TH POLITCIANS.

    spark Monday, 27 September 2010 12:46 PM

    Majority of them are crass villagers with just their race and religeon as qualifications with ignorance and arrogance to the hilt. What more can you expect when the parliament it self is now top to bottom with these types.

    Smart Aleck Monday, 27 September 2010 01:17 PM

    Put the biggest crooks in the Force into the Committee. They will know the ropes.

    kandian Monday, 27 September 2010 01:33 PM

    heh heh...cant wait for the results of this one

    Watchman Tuesday, 28 September 2010 06:24 AM

    If we can make 119 to attend to any calls within 10 minutes, most of the issues can be resolved. Please consider.
