The Western Province Community Police Division will implement a special programme today, tomorrow, and on Sunday to control criminal activity and drug rackets operating in Colombo.
Police Media Spokesman SSP Nihal Talduwa said the special operation will also target boarding houses in Colombo over the weekend.
The Police Media Spokesman said the programme is being launched in a bid to ensure national security.
SSP Talduwa said information has been revealed of individuals from across the island employed at various institutions in Colombo, state and private alike.
He added they intend on obtaining information of such persons.
The Police Media Spokesman said the Community Police will hand out a form to residents of Colombo and requested that the completed forms be returned within these three days.
He noted an individual who does not receive the form can obtain the form from the nearest Police Station, adding that a separate counter will be set up at all Police Stations for this purpose.
SSP Talduwa said if an individual is unable to hand over the completed form to the Community Police, it can be submitted to the nearest Police Station.
