Police to undergo revamp under new plan


Kathmandu, Aug.27: Nepal Police has formulated a five-year strategic plan (2017-2022) to address the need for revamping the police administration and its service.

Deupty Inspector General of Police Pushkar Karki, who is also the central police spokesperson, said the strategic plan was submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs for consideration. “The strategic plan aims to increase people’s access to police and make the police more accountable, while boosting their morale to fight crimes and social anomalies,” he told mediapersons at a press conference organised here today.

Smart and evidence-based policing is another area identified by the strategic plan that focuses on police accountability and citizens’ trust through improved public safety outcomes. The strategic plan has also stipulated a provision for Nepal Police headquarters to conclude performance contract with all police units to make them more competent, strong, service-oriented and responsible by bringing about reforms in service delivery mechanisms.

“The process of concluding performance contract with all district police offices is under way in the first phase. The concerned office in-charge will be responsible for implementing the contract,” DIG Karki said.

Similarly, Police Employees’ Transfer Police Review Committee has been formed to make the transfer process timely, simple, easy, transparent and fair in line with the federal setup of the police department.

DIG Karki said the organisation had developed a draft of the Police Code of Ethics to establish the highest principles and standards and to ensure that police employees conducted their business with integrity and abided by ethical conduct. “The establishment of the proposed National Criminal Data Centre to assist competent authorities in apprehending fugitives and making prompt inquiry about crimes and criminals on the  basis of computerised database, is in the final stage “ he informed.THT, Aug. 26
