Home Minister, Imkong L Imchen laid emphasis on the need cohesive working relationship between the district administration and the police with all the NGOs and civil societies besides ensuring that the police maintain the highest level of discipline, protecting the prestige and integrity of the state police force. Inaugurating the day-long Crime Conference for all the SPs here Tuesday, Imchen said was also important for the police to exhibit highest standard of discipline and efficiency by all rank and files so as to earn the respect of the people and also ensure peace and tranquility across the state. “Police uniform is actually the sign of the state authority and therefore, they should present themselves to the public in a respectable way,” he said. While maintaining that Nagaland remained more peaceful than the previous year , which was by itself not a small achievement,Imchen however expressed unhappiness over continued unabated extortion of public. He told the SPs in no uncertain terms, that they should tackle the menace with a firm hand. He warned that extortion menace would continue unless the law enforcing agency like the police and judicial officers worked together. He also police officers and administrative officials need to seek cooperation and support of civil societies and NGOs to ensure that Nagaland was a better and a safer place to live. On the issue of cases of police personnel deserting camps along with weapons , Imchen pointed out the significance of thorough briefing of all the police personnel on the benefits they get in service and the price they have to pay for such treasonable acts. The home minister also said that the conference was summoned to discuss about crime situation in the state and to strengthen the police administration while tackling law and order problems. At discussion hour, speaking on the issue of accused getting bail as soon as they were forwarded to the Court, DGP K. Kire spoke on the need for providing legal advisors to the police department. The DGP revealed Additional Advocate General of Nagaland had agreed to assist the state police in conducting refresher courses for the Investigating Officers (IOs). He said some of the SPs were doing the refresher course for the IOs at their own level but added there was a need to take up such programmes for the entire state police. All the SPs of the 11 districts attended the conference which studied and reviewed all the pending Special Report cases or cases of serious nature such as those that involved the underground, the cases of which the SPs themselves had to monitor. The conference was held at the PHQ Conference Hall to review the various pending Special Report (SR) or cases of serious nature in all the 11 districts.
