Seven cops feted at ‘Knights in Khaki’

Police personnel who have rendered exceptional service were honoured by Deputy Commissioner C Shikha at `Knights in Khaki,’ a function held at a private hotel in the city on Wednesday.

Speaking at the event, the DC said that the police depart­ment is one of the visible de­partments than any other de­partment. “People seek help from them. With the increase in population the crime rate has also been growing and apart from the conventional crime, cyber crime has be­come a big challenge. Instead of blaming the department for everything, citizens need to understand the shortcomings too, people expect the police to perform under grave prov­ocation without using force. The police department has a staff shortage on 1000: 120 ratio, they need to use technology to curb crime,”  she added. Superintendent of Police P Abhinav Khare said that the level of life expectancy of a policeman had come down due to work pressure and likewise the recent medical tests conducted for the department staff revealed that almost 80 percent of the po­lice personnel were suffering from high BP and sugar, de­spite working for the internal security of the country. Peo­ple must understand that we are also human beings who experience the same problems like others,” he added.
