Udhampur, June 14. Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today told passing-out probationary Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs) to make public service, sincerity and community policing a benchmark of their service. He said the Jammu and Kashmir Police was one of the best police forces in the country.
Addressing the DSPs during a passing out parade at the Sher-i-Kashmir Police Academy here today, the Chief Minister told them to be true to the commitment and oath they had taken on the culmination of their training and entering into the police service.
The Chief Minister presented the all-round best award to DSP Mohan Lal for his performance during the training period while the indoor best award went to Pranab Mahajan and outdoor best award to Mohammad Muzaffar Jan. Mir Murtaza Hussain received the best rider award.
Omar observed that the state police was passing through a period of transition from militancy to peace restoration. He said the police has to deal with a peculiar situation, needing more professional dealing and public-friendly approach.
He said transparency was the need of the hour and his government had enacted various legislations, including the Public Service Guarantee Act and the Right to Information Act to empower people.
The Chief Minister advised the probationary officers to be clear in their performance and delivery. “You are being closely watched by people, media and the social media. Whenever you have to take a decision, take it as per your conscience, commitment to your oath and in accordance with the Constitution,” he told them while assuring the full support of his government to the state police in making it a stronger and highly professional police force in the country.
DGP K Rajendra said the inculcation of professional policing, best aptitude and attitude was an important factor of the quality training received by the police officers at the academy. (TNS)
