In the notice, the Meghalaya DGP informed that these weekly sessions will be held between 11 am and 2 pm at the state DGP office. 

The public notice reads, “The Director General of Police, Meghalaya, is pleased to announce that, effective from May 30, 2024, the DGP will be available to meet the public to address any pertinent issues or grievances.”
The move aims to strengthen the bond between the public and the police.
