Another humanitarian gesture by the Janamaithri police or people friendly police in Kerala, by helping the victims of crime. Kollam subdivision has taken a wise step by providing counseling for victims of crime and their relatives, as well as to the offenders. Under Kollam subdivision, nine police stations going to implement soon the facilities to reduce the crime rate.
This initiative is decided to have a control on the several instances of crime in the Kollam district, as it was on its way to being the hub of crimes like missing people, child marriage, domestic abuse, and juvenile abuse. ‘Nanma’ counseling centres are attached to Punalur, Anchal, Kunnicode, Pathanpara, Eroor, Kulathupuzha, Thenmala, Kadakal, and Chadayamangalam, who will counsel and help the offenders to show them a better way of life and victims to deal with the trauma post offense.
The Nanma Counselling is been categorized into two sections - victims and the offenders. The department will deal with all the matters related to the cases registered during the past two years. As most of the counseling facilities are city centred and privately run, it is not reachable for many people who are in rural areas, moreover, they are not even aware of such counseling facilities and almost 95% of them are financially backward to afford those counseling. B Krishnakumar, DySP Punalur said that the people are not being scared to report the crimes like they used to be before, but still just arresting and punishing will not help them completely, they need to get a better and new life.
The Nanma Counselling centres include a team of volunteers - professional psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, NGO and ORC volunteers, SC/ST promoters and Kudumbasree workers; to deal with creating awareness among people to curb crime rates in the district. They shall conduct awareness programmes in schools and colleges and among tribal communities.
The method being bit different from the traditional procedure to deal with the criminals and victims, it seeks the cooperation of the community, understands the requirement of the community, and tries to make the best use of the resources available to the community and attempts to streamline the activities of police personnel at local police stations to address the special problems of each community to increase the effect, efficiency and productivity.
The objectives of Janamaithri Kendras are - to prevent crime and co-operation between police and the public.
