The Home Minister of Arunachal Pradesh Kumar Waii said on Thursday that the “duty of a police is to serve, protect and defend the people of the State while preserving the rights and dignity of all.”
Waii, who on Thursday graced the passing out parade of the 46th Batch Recruit Constables as chief guest at the police training centre in Banderdewa near here stressed that the State police have a responsibility to prevent and detect crime and other violations of law, pursue criminal investigations and arrest criminals besides keeping a tap on anti-social elements and insurgency problems.
The Home Minister further said that there should not be difference between a sepoy and officer in terms of discipline and character and all of them should maintain a “people-friendly” approach. Waii further congratulated the constables for making it to the Arunachal Police contingent and wished them luck.
Earlier in his keynote address, DGP Take Ringu narrated in brief about the modalities of the training and said the basic purpose of the training was to keep the police personnel current with respect to important changes in the profession and help them develop the key competencies that enable the law enforcement agency to do their jobs.
The other highlights of the day included general salute, ceremonial jeep ride, rashtriya salute, oath-taking, brass and band display, band display by VKV students, etc. The Police Training Centre (PTC) Principal offered the vote of thanks.
