If you are among those parents who get the jitters sending your child on a school picnic, it's time to relax. Cops will now accompany children on their day out on picnics! A circular issued by the home department says police will request schools to inform them before going on a picnic. And escorts will be provided, if schools ask for them. Officials say the underlying idea is to promote community policing, besides providing extra security. Expectedly, most school authorities have welcomed the move. Do you think this will help in reducing the no. of kidnappings happening in the country
