Passing out Parade of Women Police Constables

March 3, 2018

Mysuru: The Passing Out Parade (Peel-off Parade) of the second batch of Women Police Constables, trained at the Police Training School (PTS) in city was held at DAR Parade Grounds, Jyotinagar here this morning.

Speaking after receiving the guard of honour on the occasion, Home Minister R. Ramalinga Reddy said that the Congress Government had recruited more than 30,000 Police personnel over the past five years, while the previous BJP Government had appointed only 12,000 personnel.

Explaining the measures taken and initiatives launched by the Home Department for strengthening the Police force, the Home Minister said that the Congress Government had raised women reservation in Police force from the existing 20 percent to 25.

Regretting that Women Police personnel accounted for only 13 percent of the total Police force in the State, Reddy called upon the women fraternity to join the force in large numbers, as it would significantly help in preventing crimes against women.

Recalling that the erstwhile Mysuru Maharajas set up the first PTS in the State in 1892, he said that the State now has 12 PTS and a Karnataka Police Academy (KPA).

Pointing out that the State Government has set aside Rs.50 crore for Police Department modernisation, he said that a cyber lab, a Police Martyr Memorial etc., will be set up.

Referring to NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau) report where Karnataka stands at tenth position in crime rates, Reddy said that the State Government has launched various initiatives to bring down the crime rate to 3 percent from the present 5. He further said that works are being expedited on building 11,000 houses for Police personal in the State.
