You are a young police officer who has taken charge after probationary training. The area under your jurisdiction in the city is a mix of residential occupants and commercial establishments. There has been an increasing number of restaurants and pubs opening up in your area. Even though the city permits restaurants to run 24*7, recently local residents in the area have barged into pubs and have tried to forcefully stop the functioning of these establishments after 1 am. Many girls who visit the pub have complained of moral policing by the locals blaming the girls for dressing “inappropriately”. The girls are often harassed for roaming at night with boys. The locals in return complain of increasing disturbances due to these establishments operating the whole night. They also point out increasing instances of vandalism by drunken boys and girls in and around the area. The hoteliers want police protection at night for running their business, but the locals have tried to pressurize you to close these establishments after 1 am. The locals have contacted the police commissioner and he is highly critical of these pubs and youth consuming alcohol and girls wearing western clothes. He has asked you to close these restaurants and pubs after 1 am. Even though your personal views differ from that of the commissioner, you fear going against a senior officer’s request as it’s your initial posting. At the same time, you feel that the young girls need protection, and forcing the establishments to close by 1 am is against the law and could have judicial consequences.
