Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted virtually with Indian Police Service Probationers at the ‘Dikshant Parade Event’, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy.
Modi wished the Indian Police Service probationers for completing their training successfully. He said the probationers must be proud of their uniforms instead of flexing power out of it. “Never lose respect for your Khaki uniform. The Khaki uniform’s human face has been engraved in the public memory due to the police’s good work, especially during this Covid-19,” said Modi.
Modi urged the probationers to develop a sense of belongingness and pride in every station they are posted. The probationers should show compassion to the general public. He also advised them to use the technology to the maximum extent possible while remembering the significance of the ground level intelligence inputs. He added there is no shortage of information, big data, and artificial intelligence. Modi termed information available on social media is an asset. He said, winning the hearts of the people through compassion rather than control them through fear will last long.
Modi stressed on the importance of fitness in policing. He said the fitness developed during training has to be maintained. If you are fit, then the companions around you will also be fit. They will be inspired to see you.
