Ahead of Games, Delhi Police

The Delhi Police is taking no chances as far as safety and maintenance of law and order during the Commonwealth Games are concerned — and it wants Delhiites to do the same.
In an expensive effort to seek public support to check crime and educate the capital's residents against possible terror threats, ahead of the Commonwealth Games, the Delhi Police will spend over Rs 20 crore on advertising and publicity this year. "The amount is double that which had been spent on advertising and publicity in 2009-10," said a senior police officer requesting anonymity. Out of its total sanctioned budget of Rs 23 crore for advertising and publicity this year — up from the Rs 9.21 crore during 2009-10 and the Rs 10.19 crore in 2008-09, the Delhi Police has reportedly already spent nearly Rs 2.27 crore between April and May this year. The Delhi Police's total budget for the current year is Rs 2,755 crore.
