Chhattisgarh Police has launched a campaign ‘Spandan’ to protect the jawans from depression and stress. Director General of Police DM Awasthi recently initiated this campaign from a Maoist affected Kanker district of Bastar division.

AIR correspondent reports that more than 50 police personnel, including personnel of paramilitary forces, committed suicide in Chhattisgarh over the past two years. Eighteen of these cases were reported from seven districts of Maoist-affected Bastar division.

Apart from this, Jawans opening fire on their colleagues were also reported in recent years. Taking stock of these increasing incidents, the Chhattisgarh police has prepared an action plan and launched a campaign named Spandan.
Detailed guidelines in this regard have been issued to all Superintendents of Police and Commandants. Under this campaign, Yoga classes, music therapy, interactive programmes and counseling from psychologists will be organized for jawans. Senior police officers will visit police lines, police stations and armed forces companies and spend time with the jawans in order to be aware of their problems.
A special app is being prepared for monitoring the problems of police personnel at the police headquarters level. Through this app, policemen and their families will be able to communicate their problems to the concerned officials. 
The spirit of this campaign is to ensure that none of the policemen remain depressed and their families can get a healthy environment.
