City police has decided to undertake a pilot project for students to avert situations wherein they get involved in police cases and also counsel them for a trouble-free career.
Kanpur SSP Sulabh Mathur said that the programme will start next week at a Polytechnic institute here where frequent quarrels were an area of concern for the college administration as well as the police.
To counter the menace, the district police administration will now conduct classes to counsel students to avoid career self-destruction by getting mired into legal cases.
Keeping in view the future of students, police have been avoiding to file any cases as it could ruin their career, he said.
Mathur said that they have appointed two officers under proactive policing initiative to counsel the students through power point presentations.
The focus will be to make them understand their objective of building a career and not ruining it by getting into tussles, he said.
If the programme succeeds, the initiative will be introduced at other colleges as well.
