Read Time:4 Minute, 42 Second

November 25: Delhi Police Public Library was started on 22 February 2012 in PS Jamia Nagar- SED. As the 1st pilot project in India to run a library for underprivileged students as a community policing project inside the Police Station. Which was run with tremendous success. All because of  Delhi Police and Shikhar NGO partnership, under the able guidance and conceived by Shri Ajay Chaudhary, IPS, Deputy Commissioner- SED, of Police at that time, and project implemented under the leadership of Shri  Nadeem Akhtar.

Delhi Police Public Library, a unique community policing initiative of Delhi Police. Police Station Jamia Nagar has been running successfully for the last ten years under the Community Policing Project of Delhi Police and has become a role model of community policing initiatives for any state police of India. This is the 1st Digital Library in the police station.

On 22 February 2019, this library was made a digital library, and it was given the shape of a world-class library under the guidance of  Shri Praveen Ranjan, IPS and Mr Devesh Chandra Srivastava, inaugurated by the then Commissioner of Police, Hon’ble Shri. Amulya Patnaik, IPS, told us for the purpose for which we started this policy library at Jamia Nagar Police Station, Nadeem Akhtar, has taken this library to greater heights and has made it the first library not in the country but in the world which is digital and is inside the police station. He also said that Shikhar Organisation and Nadeem Ji that such libraries should be opened in more of our police stations and Shikhar organisation should run them.

Given the then  Special Commissioner of Police Transport Range Shri Praveen Ranjan, IPS suggested that such a library should also be made in PS Okhla Vihar Metro Police Station so that more and more needy students can get the benefit of it and youth should be made a good citizen by providing help through education.

Shri Devesh Chandra Srivastava, Joint Commissioner of Police, led this unique project, and we connected to more PSUs for CSR support to open more libraries in different police stations. And this library shifted to the PPP model.

Nadeem Akhtar, a Director, has been running Delhi Police Public Libraries successfully and without any selfishness through his NGO Shikhar for the last ten years, due to which this project has emerged as a unique project in the form of Community Policing Project all over India, which is a striking example in itself.

On 22 February 2022, on the occasion of the Inauguration Ceremony of the Delhi Police Public Library, at PS Okhla Vihar Metro Station, Shri Rakesh Asthana, IPS, worthy Commissioner of Delhi Police, because of this project, declared that such libraries should be opened in every police station across Delhi and in his speech he also said we request Nadeem Ji and Shikhar Ngo should help Delhi Police in opening such libraries in all the police station within coming two years.
