“When non-violence is accepted as the law of life, it must pervade the whole being and not be applied to isolated acts,” Mahatma Gandhi had said.As part of an initiative to promote Gandhian values, over 4,500 Delhi Home Guards will be given an orientation on non-violent communication and non-violent conflict resolution in the national Capital. The programme, initiated by Gandhi Smriti and Gandhi Darshan, has included sessions to help give the citizens of Delhi a better policing experience.Under the programme started in the Capital in January, two sessions have already been conducted where 120 home guards have been given training on resolving issues and communicating non-violently.The objective of the programme is to work on an enhanced police-public co-operation, public participation in crime prevention and effect positive changes in the public perception of the image of the police.”Mahatma’s ideas of a non-violent police force and enhanced police-citizen engagement to handle crime are relevant now more than ever before. Non-violent action can be used while upholding the law of the land. The aim of the police must not only be to respect, but also protect the rights guaranteed to each citizen by the Constitution,” says Vedabhyas Kundu, Programme Officer, Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti, the National Memorial of Mahatma Gandhi.Over the course of one year, Delhi Police officers along with the home guards will be given this orientation.”The training is not only beneficial for their work but it helps them with their day-to-day work. The guards now have a list of different techniques of non-violent conflict resolution and have been applying them in their work situation. Some of them have even come up and asked for another session,” says D S Rawat, Commandant Training, Directorate General of Home Guards and Civil Defence.
