Jammu, March 23:  DGP R.R Swain today said very few cops get the opportunity to wear the uniform and serve the country and the community.

Addressing nearly a thousand freshly recruited police officers of the rank of Sub-Inspectors including about 60 probationary DSPs at Corps Battle School at Bhalra, he said it is an occasion of immense pride and privilege to have been selected from among tens of thousands of aspirants.

“No sermonizing but a few sincere thoughts from long experience is what I place before you – to be happy and successful, besides counting on the blessings of the almighty, one has to be a lifelong learner, said DGP Swain. A few years from now, many will find themselves surging ahead of other colleagues only because of their eagerness and striving to learn continuously, more because we live in a truly dynamic world characterized by rapid societal changes affecting the way we live our family lives, interact with neighborhood, earn and spend, participate in politics and governance – mostly triggered by dramatic and incessant changes in technology,” said DGP   Swain.

 DGP Swain highlighted that all of us are mostly evaluated on three counts: Niyat, Mehnat, and Qabliyat. “While the first two can be in our control, the last one is partly God-given. However, even this can be changed by a drive and strive to learn and this training school, thanks to the Indian Army, has afforded an opportunity which should be availed to the hilt,” said DGP Swain.

  Thanking the Commandant of the Corps Battle School Col. Praveen Kumar and his highly committed and experienced instructors, DGP Swain hoped that this would also be an additional opportunity to raise the synergy among the security and law enforcement arms of ‘mother India’ to a new level.

He also appreciated the efforts of officers responsible for coordinating and undertaking police training including Director SKPA Udhampur   Garib Dass, DIG Training Ms. Sarah Rizvi, Principal of CTC Lethpora   Tanveer Jeelani, Deputy Director SKPA   Rajesh Bali for their remarkable proactive effort in supplementing the efforts of the Army by additional logistics and instructors in curating and designing a tailored training program, first of its kind, that ambitiously aims at transforming the trainees, fresh from colleges, in a short span of six weeks to police officers who can take pride in themselves and in whom the community can pose faith as defenders of the citizens against lawbreakers and enemies of national security.

DGP Swain who was accompanied by ADGP Jammu   Anand Jain was received and seen off by Range DIG    Shridhar Patil, district SSP   Javaid Mir, CO IRP 5 Bn   Gh Jeelani Wani, and other local police officers.
