The 38th Nagaland Police Duty-cum-Sports and Athletic Meet 2019, commenced at NAPTC stadium, Chumukedima, here Monday with Director General of Police (DGP) Nagaland, T John Longkumer, as special guest.

Addressing the gathering, the DGP stated that the state police have a new sports policy and was optimistic that the policy would not only nurture the talents and strengths of the personnel, but also provide avenues for personal growth and career opportunities. 

He said that sports meet not only provided opportunities for police personnel to get together in camaraderie, but also helped the department in identifying and preparing talents for bigger and greater theatres to excel.

Maintaining that the state police was a dynamic force, DGP remarked that it had also made remarkable progress in terms of adapting to technologies, weaponries, methodology, and even diversifying their services to cater to specific requirements of the society and state. 

DGP urged upon the participants to utilise the police sports meet to strive for excellence, even in areas which have not been fully explored before. He also encouraged them to strive to win new laurels and “to approach the realization of our aspiration with scientific approach.” He urged the personnel of Nagaland Police to prove that they were second to none.

DGP noted that the event was originally scheduled to be held in the early part of November, but due to atmosphere of uncertainty that gripped the state, it was not conducive for the event to be held during that time. 

Earlier, delivering the welcome address, organising secretary, DIG (training), Aotemsu Ao, stated that altogether, 29 teams would be participating for the 38th edition of the police meet. He said that three units, NPCS, NPCWS and Referral hospital, would be participating exclusively in the family welfare segment only.

Football, volleyball, basketball, kabadi, tug of war, boxing, badminton, table tennis, etc. are some of the events planned for the 38th edition police meet. 

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
