Director General of Police K Kire on Wednesday called upon new recruits to live up to the oath they have taken stating that a policeman signified the symbol of trust and confidence.

The DGP also impressed upon the recruits on the aspects of police profession reminding them that the job they would be executing was a challenging one. Pointing out that police as custodians of the law have been given certain powers, the DG urged the new recruits not to misuse the powers vested in them but to check crimes.
Kire urged them not think that the post was too low for them and also called upon the parents of the recruits to inculcate the habit of saving in their wards.
Earlier, the DG also presented trophies and certificates to the award winners.
Delivering the welcome address, Commandant NAPTC Imlisunep NPS underscored the importance of discipline among the recruits. A total of 446 trainees including three havildars and 17 women were inducted into the force which included 3 in DEF, 294 in NAP, 147 in NAP (IR) and 2 in PHQ.

Specialized training

After a short successful stint of duty during the Common Wealth Games held at Delhi, the 15 NAP (IR) Mahila would be continuing further specialized training. However, unlike the usual NAP (IR) battalion, the 15 NAP (IR) might be exempted from attachment with the army. This was disclosed by DGP K Kire at the sidelines of the ceremonial attestation of NAP/IR. The DGP informed that the force was contemplating bringing in instructors from the CRPF for specialized trainings in mob and riot control for the battalion. Asked about changes in the syllabus for the force, Kire admitted that certain instructions have been received from the MHA and disclosed that necessary changes starting from HIV and AIDS and disaster management would be incorporated soon.
