Dr. P. Ravindranath receives guard of honour at Passing Out Parade of Women Probationary Police personnel

Mysore/Mysuru: Director General of Police (DGP- Training), Dr. P. Ravindranath, has said, “the combined software of Prosecution,  Forensic  Sciences and Prisons has come in handy in investigating the cases using technology.”

Dr. Ravindranath addressed a gathering during the Passing Out Parade of total 335 Women Probationary Police personnel — 240 from eighth batch, Police Training School, Jyotinagar and 95 from fourth batch, Temporary Police Training School, CAR, Mysuru — organised  jointly at DAR Parade Grounds in city this morning.

Dr. Ravindranath, who gave a pep talk on various roles to be handled by the Police, said: “Be it investigation and cracking of crimes, management of law and order or streamlining traffic system,  Police have a huge role to play. The Department for its overall growth should also use the potential of the recruits, as most of them are highly educated beyond the minimum qualification (second PUC pass or equivalent course) required for the recruitment of Police personnel.”

With more thrust on technology, Police Department is using CCTV cameras and drone cameras even to maintain law and order, under the concepts of ‘Safe City’ in Bengaluru and ‘Smart Cities’ in other cities. Though officials play a key role in the hierarchy of Police Department, the works of Police Constables and Head Constables also assume significance. The personnel should be abreast of several Laws and Acts like Juvenile Justice Act, SC/ ST Act (Prevention of Atrocities), Information Technology Act among others. According to Karnataka Police Act 1963, the Police Constables and Head Constables are also deemed to be officers. Hence they have more responsibilities in the Department, said Dr. Ravindranath.

Women Probationary Police personnel at the Passing Out Parade held at DAR Parade Grounds in city this morning.

To ensure that Policemen should not be deprived of any facilities, more emphasis is laid on providing vehicle and housing facilities. With the intention to increase the numbers of Police Sub-Inspectors (PSIs) in the Department, it is planned to promote those eligible in the coming days, the DGP said.

H.S. Gange, the outgoing Probationary Woman Police of eighth batch who won the ‘All Round Best Trainee’ title, was the Parade Commander.
