Under 'Yuva' initiative, workshops, sports activities and vocational trainings etc. were organised to channelise the energy of young adults and children from the under privileged sections of the society to make them productive members of the society and to prevent them from moving towards crime and drugs at an early age.

Grassroots level officers of Delhi Police have been instructed to hold meaningful dialogue with all sections of the society.
