New syllabus for police probationers released

Director General and Inspector General of Police Omprakash released the new syllabus for probationers at Karnataka Police Academy (KPA) during the inaugural function of the foundation training for the 40th batch of police sub-inspectors in Mysuru on Sunday.

The DG&IGP called upon the recruits not to use contacts to influence for posting of their choice for a comprehensive reformation in the department.

 “The recruits should be ready to work at any place in the State. The station house officers directly come in contact with the aggrieved people and they are the ones, who can help the people in need. They cannot please all, as justice has to be done. So, they should maintain their integrity and credibility. One should always remember that the uniform is only temporary and one has to return to  society after retirement as a civilian. Hence, understand the problems of the people objectively and try to find solutions for them,” he said.

Appealing to the recruits to surrender all negative attitudes during the course of the
training, he said, “Report to work with the positive attitude for the reformation of the
department. Even today, people speak negative about the Police department. Even retired police officials complain about the lack of courtesy among the serving officials. Recognise good citizens who approach the police station. All persons cannot be treated like criminals.”

Additional Director General of Police (Recruitment and Training) Raghavendra H Auradkar said, the syllabus for the probationary sub-inspectors has been revised rationally and it will help infuse new blood to the department. “The job will be a challenge and also risky. The training will help the recruits to gain physical agility, mental strength and gain positive attitude. Projects in law, record maintenance, investigation, administration and acquital have been added to the new syllabus. Relevant topics like farmer suicides have been incorporated in Psychology. Visit to various institutions across all sectors have been made mandatory,” he said.

A minute of silence was observed to pay tribute to S Jagadish, the sub-inspector who was allegedly killed by two-vehicle lifters at Nelamangala, recently. In-charge Director of KPA and Inspector General of Police (Southern region)

B K Singh, City Police Commissioner B Dayananda, Superintendent of Police Abhinav Khare and Deputy Director of KPA Dharinidevi Malagatti were present. Deputy Superintendent of Police P V Sneha compered the programme.
