The Passing out Parade of 107th (Male) and 108th (Female) batches of recruit constables was held at Police Training College, Jharoda Kalan on Friday.
The constables took oath in a ceremonial parade after completing their basic training. An Indian Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju took the salute of the marching contingents.
The parade was attended by Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and other senior officers of Delhi Police. These batches will augment the trained manpower of Delhi Police.
During the training, they acquired skills in Law, Police Science, Criminology, Computer Applications, Cyber Crime, and Human Rights with emphasis on professionalism, discipline and good behavior.
For effective community policing, they have been sensitized on gender issues, crimes against women, children, and senior citizens. With special emphasis on safety and security of women, all the women constables have been trained in Unarmed Combat (UAC) and Commando exercises.
In outdoor training, they are trained in handling of weapons, vehicle driving, firing practice. They are also trained to use the latest weapons.
Police Commissioner of Delhi Amulya Patnaik congratulated the new constables for completion of their training successfully. In his welcome address Patnaik drew attention to the approach adopted and some key measures taken to enhance the effectiveness of the training which he believes will be visible in field duty.
He said that the constables are expected to do their job with distinction, despite the challenges they face. He affirmed that unbiased service to the public helps in building trust.
He added that the uptick in crime and its nature makes it imperative for the police force to be updated and acquire skills in latest technology along with physical and mental agility.
Apart from functional knowledge, he laid importance on soft skills so as to effectively meet responsibility towards the children, women, senior citizens, disillusioned youth, and other needy sections.
