New Delhi: Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung on Friday asked Delhi police personnel to be on their toes as the road ahead is ‘very tough’ and people have high expectations from them. Najeeb Jung also stressed on bringing technology into application for better and efficient policing.
"Your training is more sensitive and serious because you have greater responsibilities today. Media and society is more aware, the population has escalated and that is why there are more expectations from you...You have to be on your toes because the road ahead is very tough," he said.
Jung was speaking at the passing out parade of newly recruited constables in New Delhi. "Today we talk of gender sensitivity, good behaviour and better investigation. You should be efficient in technology, forensics and computer applications," he said.
In his first public function after joining office, Jung said, "You are not a common man today, when you wear this uniform you have no caste, no religion. You don't belong to Delhi, Uttar Pradesh or Bihar but you are an Indian citizen. You have pledged to safeguard the constitution and once you wear this uniform you should fulfil this pledge," he said.
In the passing out parade, 2,339 constables including 37 female constables passed out after completing their basic training. These constables had joined the training in October 2012. During training, they were imparted knowledge on law, human behaviour, police science, police practical work, police rules, criminology, terrorism and computer related crimes.
"These constables have been groomed in such a way that, they can serve the society in more humane manner. Training on sensitization on gender issues and crime against weaker section, especially women, children and senior citizens were also imparted," a senior police officer said. "They were also given one-month commando training during their course," he added.
