Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana on Saturday exhorted the newly-recruited constables to remain updated on latest crime trends and make optimal use of technology in conducting investigation, gathering evidence and for prosecution procedures.
He was addressing the passing out parade at Police Training College, Jharoda Kalan.
The 116th batch of 312 constables completed their training and will now be joining various districts and units of Delhi Police, officials said.
According to a statement released by police, among them, 171 candidates have been appointed on compassionate grounds in the place of their blood relations, who lost their lives while discharging duty.
There are 11 post graduates, 116 graduates, three people with B Tech, one with BBA and one BCA among these recruits.
They come from different parts of the country — 93 from Delhi, 88 from Haryana, 39 from Rajasthan, 60 from UP, four from Maharashtra, two from Himachal Pradesh, one each from Uttrakhand, Punjab, Telangana, Bihar, West Bengal and Jharkhand and 20 from northeastern states, the statement said.
Asthana took the salute and inspected the ceremonial parade.
He also congratulated all the fresh recruits and lauded the drill instructors and Police Training College staff for imparting excellent training to the newly inducted constables.
“Welcoming them in the force, Asthana exhorted them to remain updated on latest crime trends and make optimal use of technology in conducting investigation, gathering evidence and for prosecution procedures,” the statement said.
Underlining the importance of community policing, the CP said, “Ninety-nine per cent people of the society strives to live in peace and only a few want to disturb the tranquility. Take those 99 per cent in confidence and maintain harmony with their cooperation.”
The image of police should instill a sense of confidence in public, but at the same time, criminals must fear it. He pressed them to strengthen the constitution and law of the land by performing their duty with bravery and balanced nature, with a neutral overview, the statement stated.
Woman constable Ankush Devi and constable Piyush Kumar were selected as ‘All-Round Best Cadet’, it added.
