Governor E S L Narasimhan opined that the modern day policing had undergone tremendous changes. He was speaking at the passing out parade of 59 probationary Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSP), including one officer from Pondicherry, selected by APPSC, held at Rao Bahadur Venkat Rami Reddy Andhra Pradesh Police Academy (RBVRR APPA) on Wednesday.
Congratulating the DSPs on successful completion of year-long rigorous training, he said, “Policing is no longer simply wielding lathi and engaging in duty. Today’s policing has undergone a tremendous change.” He urged them to keep their promise made on the occasion of oath taking as long as they were in service.
Narasimhan emphasised on the need of having accountability, transparency, gender sensitivity, respect for public, discipline, sense of humour, dignity and empathy. “Great degree of transparency is one of the essential qualities of police officials. Win the respect of people by your performance. The powers granted to you shall be used for societal requirements but not for the purpose of self. As long as you are in public service, uphold Constitution and be lawful,” he advised.
In the backdrop of the Right to Information Act and proliferation of media, he said that the police officials had nothing to hide. Stating that AP Police was the best police in his career during last four decades, he urged them to preserve the quality of policing in future.
Earlier, Director General of Police B Prasada Rao said that the police officers should respect a poor man and treat him with empathetic manner. “Police station should be made approachable to victims,” he suggested. “They must take care of their health also in the day-to-day pressures,” he told them.
In the end, NICFS medal for excellence of criminology was given to Dr G Prem Kajal, while G Chakravarthi was honoured with a trophy for best in firing. Similarly, the DGP’s trophy and sword for best in outdoor was awarded to G Venkata Ramudu. DSP K Sravani won two medals and trophies for excelling in forensic science, indoor policing and all-round performance.
APPA Director M Malakondaiah also spoke on the occasion. The 59 DSPS classified into six contingents took part in the parade under the guidance of G Chakravarthy. A total of 21 women, one Ph D holder and two medicine graduates were among the passed out DSPs.
