Tripura inducts new batch of policemen

Agartala : The youngsters from northeastern states have in the recent years shown greater interest in joining police and paramilitary forces.

The 83rd batch of Tripura Police personnel recently completed their training and pledged to perform their duty with sincerity and devotion.

Dressed in their parading costumes, a contingent of 554 newly trained police personnel carried out a momentous passing out parade ceremony at K.T.D Singh Police Training College in Tripura.

The 83rd batch comprised of cadets from different parts of Tripura, who completed an eleven months basic training.

Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar, who was present on the occasion along with other senior police officials, said the main duty of police is to help the administration in maintaining law and order.

“The second duty is to maintain peace, harmony and unity. The third duty is to stand beside people during crisis like natural or man-made disaster and play an active role,” he added.

The newly-trained cadres have been trained for counter insurgency operations.

They have also undergone rigorous training including stress management, disaster management, human rights, use of different arms and ammunitions, forensic science, and community policing.

“Right from my childhood, I wanted to join the Tripura Police to serve my motherland. I have pledged not only to protect my family, but the entire country. I am very happy that my wish and dream have been fulfilled today,” said Raman Singh, one of the newly inducted cadres.

“I always wanted to join the security force since I was young and now I am finally a part of it. I want to help the administration and protect the people of my state. We are quite happy today as we passed out after nine months of rigorous training. We are really very happy,” added another cadre Rabadul Hussain.

The Tripura Government has set-up four all women police stations in the state. Five more such stations are likely to come up soon.

The new recruitments have been made to increase the police presence in the interiors of the state. (ANI)
