The department of police similar to all the government institutions is paid by the national exchequer, which evidently draws from the pockets of the citizens. Unfortunately the police have failed miserably in extending the desired services to the citizens of the country.

It is suggested that the police should form a proper public relations department in every police station, where the feedback from the public is acquired and the performance of the police could evidently be gauged.

The department will also assist in bridging the gap between the police and the local community, resulting in better maintenance of law and order in the area.
