Maintaining that well-educated candidates too are opting for Police Department now, the DGP said: “Science and Technology has improved, Central and State Governments are spending money and the Department too is ready to give full support for eligible candidates.”

Karnataka Police have effectively implemented the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) which is making the job of registering a case and filing an FIR easy, he said and added that it is resulting in effective charge-sheet submission and investigation, thus making it easy to track the criminals. This has been more effective since 2009 and with the help of Microsoft company, Police Information Technology has been improved, he added.

Stating that Command, Control and Direction are works of an IPS but Constables are the ones who implement, he stressed that a Constable who reaches higher designations with promotions is cable of working more effectively. If one possess skill and knowledge, he/ she can do work of an officer with ease and the Department will support anyone and everyone who put in more efforts.
