New Delhi : Bhim Sain Bassi, who took over as Delhi Police chief, said his priority is to make Delhi safe for civilians, and added that he plans to revive the neighborhood watch scheme.

Bassi, who assumed the charge of more than 80,000-strong police force, said: "My priority is to make Delhi safe for civilians."

As part of efforts to make Delhi safer, the neighborhood watch scheme would be revived, said the 57-year-old Bassi who succeeded Neeraj Kumar in the sensitive office.

"It will be quite tough as one will have to go to the colonies and know their problems, but we will try to revive the scheme," he said in his first press conference.

Laying stress on the safety of women and children, the 1977 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer said he would treat women's and children's security with utmost priority, and also focus on cases of child snatching.

For women, Delhi Police would launch several schemes aimed to make women "feel safe at any place at any time".

Bassi also plans to smoothen the traffic problems. This will be among his priorities, he said.

To ease the traffic jams in the capital, he said he would coordinate with various agencies that look after roads, including the Public Works Department, and other organisations concerned.
