Police Public Mela -The Mela organized dates back to 1996, when it was held for the first time in Recreation Hall of District Police Lines, Jammu. It was inaugurated by the then Chairperson, PWWA Mrs. Veena Sabharwal. The Main objective of the Mela was to display the items being fabricated by District Welfare Centers for sale to increase the income of Centers as the District Police Welfare Centers were opened with the objectives of engaging the family members of Police personnel in different trade activities like sewing, weaving, knitting etc. These District Police Welfare Centers used to fabricate various items throughout the year and on the day of Mela these items were brought for sale.

In the year 2002, the Mela was conducted at State level, both at Jammu and Srinagar by the Police Wives Welfare Association under the Chairpersonship of Mrs. Neeru Suri. The scheme of lucky draw was also introduced for inviting the participation of all ranks of the department. This concept has not only increased the earnings but also made the Mela familiar both in the department as well as in general masses. In its first step, various prize items were commenced with first prize of Car Maruti-800 against the coupons costing Rs.10/- .

With the passage of time, the Police Mela started gaining faith & fame at large scale. Finally the Jammu & Kashmir Police Pariwar (Police Association for Rise, Improvement, Welfare and Rehabilitation) came into being to take on the activities in a more organized manner. With an objective to ensure more and more participation of public for purchase of items fabricated at Police Welfare Centers, large number of other activities and fun were supplemented.

J&K Police Public Schools
- Because of inception of insurgency in the State in early 1990s, the department was constrained to establish Police Public Schools to impart the quality education to the wards of our serving as well as martyred Police personnel in the protected areas. Initially, two Schools were established at capital cities of Jammu and Srinagar which have now graduated to Higher Secondary level. Following the great demand of our men in particular and masses in general to establish such Schools at every District Hqrs. in the State and to provide equal opportunities to all our men as well as to civilians residing in remote areas. The department in its 2nd phase started six new Police Public Schools at District Anantnag, Baramulla, Doda, Rajouri, Leh and Kargil.

Police Pariwar Fuel Care, Pumps
- With an opportunity provided by the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. to augment the financial position of the J&K Police Pariwar as well as performing of social services, two Police Pariwar Fuel Care Pumps, one each at District Kathua and R.S.Pura were established during year 2006 and 2007 respectively. Two more pumps were sanctioned and established through BPCL at Rajouri and Poonch during year 2010 and 2011 respectively. One pump already sanctioned was installation at Gulshan Ground, Gandhi Nagar, Jammu on 30.07.2012.
