Area Suraksha Mitra is a Civil Defence Initiative that trains citizens to actively create safer neighbourhoods and strong communities. Jointly with the Civil Defence unit of the police, it trains people in first aid, emergency response and disaster management. The citizen volunteers who become Area Suraksha Mitras (ASMs) form a bridge between the community and the police, facilitating communication between the two stakeholders. They become the catalyst to solving neighbourhood crime and safety issues.
