For the fourth year in a row, Chandigarh Senior Citizens’ Association (CSCA) invited the local Police Force and families to Tagore Theatre on Tuesday, 2nd September 2014, to felicitate them, and to honour some of them, for selfless and courteous service. This is an unique function wherein an important segment of society organize a thanksgiving function for the whole force AND the families. The programme drew massive response over 1100 persons into the under-1000 capacity hall.
Chandigarh Police and CSCA have been collaborating with each other for the last eighteen years. In fact, Chandigarh has become a model for other states and UTs which want the same facilities as provided by the Police in Chandigarh – Beat Officers visiting older persons, specially those living alone; a dedicated Helpline; special car stickers; caring attitude and prompt response; participation in the Cycle Rally for Environment AND, above all, the Annual Walk-for-Fun.
