CM urges newly inducted lady PSIs to act responsibly
PANAJI : Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar addressed the 32 newly-inducted lady police sub-inspectors (PSIs) at Police Headquarters, Panaji on Thursday. The lady PSIs have completed their one-year training at Police Training College, Jharoda Kala, New Delhi.
DGP Dr Muktesh Chander IPS, IGP Jaspal Singh IPS, SPs and other senior police officials were present on the occasion. Out of the 32 PSIs, 22 will be posted at various police stations in the state and 11 will be posted with the traffic police.
While addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister congratulated the lady PSIs and stressed on the importance of physical health and honesty of police personnel.
“This field is considered as male dominated due to many reasons. It is your self-motivation that has brought you here. The training must have made you physically strong and tough. However, there are times when you may feel low. But with sheer dedication and perseverance, you can overcome it. Hence, do not run away from danger, instead face it and find a solution,” he said. Stating that the state has special expectations from women police force, the Chief Minister urged the lady PSIs to act responsibly.
“Women are accountable and sincere in every aspect. Hence, this is the best chance to pay back to the public. Do not fall prey to the bad things around and maintain a clean character, build a good image and keep discipline intact,” he said.
As women are more sensitive towards society, he also asked them to pay special attention to the complaints filed by people with disabilities, special needs, and women.
“Learn to handle the cases with skill. Be confident and wise but do not develop an ego. Be helpful, yet live a disciplined life,” said the Chief Minister.
While informing that Goa is moving for an independent cadre in civil services, he said that if Goa gets an independent cadre, the number of positions for SPs and DySPs and IPS officers will increase, giving good opportunities and career prospects to the current generation.
