Platitudes and praise from the highest government and civic officials have been forthcoming ever since...In a message to The PROTECTOR on the occasion of its second anniversary, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan complemented this periodical “Besides highlighting the good work done by the police, the magazine has also helped in creating awareness amongst the public about the many positive aspects of the police force. In short, The PROTECTOR has successfully connected cops with communities.”

Since its launch on 1 October 2009 on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti, The PROTECTOR ( has strived to promote ‘the Cop-Community Connect’ to create a nexus between citizens and the police in a bid to create a safer, secure city.    

In his message, Maharashtra Governor K. Sankarnarayan said: “A lot of good work done by the Police often goes unnoticed and unrecognized. People have the right to know the good work done by the police, and therefore information of such work needs to be publicised and disseminated. The PROTECTOR deserves to be complemented for providing its platform to police officers from various states to write about their novel initiatives and activities and the positive results that these efforts have yielded.”

In this context, it bears mention that The PROTECTOR has taken a bold initiative in bringing out a compendium of inspiring speeches by eminent personalities, top police officials, security experts and analysts, delivered during a series of seminars organized by The Mumbai Police in 2010, in the form of a book, titled, ‘Fight Against Terrorism.’    

Home Minister R.R. Patil, who had earlier released the book ‘Fight Against Terrorism,’ congratulated New Media on the second anniversary of The PROTECTOR and said; the magazine had helped promote “a deeper understanding of the philosophy of the Police working in partnership with the public.”

Sharing his senior colleague’s opinion, Minister of State for Home Satej Patil said in his message that The PROTECTOR had emerged as the only publication in the country focusing on the unsung achievements and sacrifices of the police force in Maharashtra and other states of India.

Commending The PROTECTOR’s role in forging cop-community relationship, Maharashtra’s newly-appointed Director General of Police K. Subramanyam said that The PROTECTOR had been consistent in its endeavour in bringing to the fore and to the knowledge of the public the efforts and initiatives of the police force through both print and its website.

Describing the second anniversary issue of The PROTECTOR as a collectors’ number, New Media’s Managing Editor Satya Swaroop said that the magazine “is rich in content and offers a varied fare, ranging from in-depth interviews of top police officials, both serving and retired, to the history of Mumbai Police and the famous cases its Crime Branch had solved during its more than 100 years of existence.”

Swaroop said that during the last two years, The PROTECTOR has strived to promote best practices in policing, identify and highlight modernization of the force through induction of better infrastructure & technology, community policing and the importance of women in police.
“It is only appropriate that New Media, as part of its commitment to social responsibility, should initiate the launching of the ‘Cop-Community Connect’ seminars nationwide to mark the second anniversary of The PROTECTOR,” he said.

Elaborating the concept, Swaroop said, “The prime objective of the initiative is to create awareness among the people across the country on the importance of Police-Public Partnerships in curbing crime and in fighting terrorism. New Media will announce in due course through The PROTECTOR magazine the schedule of the seminars to be held in other major cities across the country," he added.
The seminars are supported by the following partners - Micro Technologies (India) Ltd, Fire and Security Association of India, Global Forum for Disaster Reduction, Microtek Global Foundation, Noble Event and MediaValueWorks India. For free seminar registration, please visit
