In summary:

The Poona police department has made the historic move of trusting its own civilians more than criminals and terrorists. It seems so simple, yet this is the first example I've seen where a police department is actively trying to enrol civilians in shooting proficiency programs to improve public safety.

One of the most heartening measures I've read about in the aftermath of 26/11.

wow this is awesome news!!

Go India!

Now THIS is a solution to terrorism on a local level!

And i bet crime rates will drop significantly in this area after citizens are armed and ready!

I hope they keep the policy up and running.

I give them two thumbs up.

Very encouraging to see that at least some people still have got a sense of "common sense". I only hope that the instructors put a good emphasis on weapon safety.

If only more people would finally come to their senses and accept that freedom and security aren't mutually exclusive.

As a Responsible Citizen, I would like to be the first to Enrole for this service and in times of emergency I will be ready for any service asked by the police.
