Need to identify black sheep in police: DGP

Srinagar: Police has faced many challenges in the past and should remain ready to face challenges in the future as well by remaining prompt in delivering its services to the people while upholding the law of the land, Director General of Police(DGP) K Rajendra said Thursday.
Addressing police personnel at District Police Lines Baramulla, Rajendara said that “corruption and human rights violations will not be tolerated and the minuscule black sheep among us who damage our image need to be identified and sidelined. These few will not be allowed to jeopardize our efforts of public goodwill.”
The DGP said that 1500 police personnel had “sacrificed their life, a huge number keeping in view the size of our department, for securing the life and property of the people and eliminating terrorism from the state.”
He said that police needed to work hard and remain prompt in delivering services to the people.
“Empathy and good attitude can go a long way to improve our image as well as our services,” the DGP said.
“People approach police with the hope that they will be heard and their problems will be addressed. We have to come up to their expectations and work honestly while discharging our duties,” the DGP said.
