Delivering the valedictory address after distributing prizes to the winners, Regional Commissioner of Mysuru Dr. G.C. Prakash said that from the day he took charge as the Mysuru Division Regional Commissioner, a total of 123 members of Police families, whose family members (serving in the Police Department) had died of COVID and other reasons, have been given jobs.
Pointing out that education was very important for providing jobs, he said that it is painful to give D-Group jobs and hence it is important to study and be graduates. “One can study and obtain degree at home through Open University,” he advised.
“The annual Police sports meet provides happiness for two to three days to Police personnel, who are always working under pressure. I have participated as a guest for more than five such events and seeing Police personnel in a relaxed mood is special,” the Regional Commissioner said and thanked all those who took part in the sports meet.
City Police Commissioner B. Ramesh, DCPs Pradeep Gunti, M.S. Geetha Prasanna and CAR DCP Shivaraju and others were present at the valedictory.
