Ranchi: In the investiture ceremony of Jharkhand Police, Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Tuesday inaugurated 25 new police buildings online. Greeting people of the state, he said the state government is providing security to everyone without any discrimination. He praised the police personnel who sacrificed their lives for the sake of the country.
Das said the people are safe and secure because of the gallantry shown by the police personnel. “The government is working fast to free Jharkhand from crime, corruption and extremism. Police personnel will be given one month’s salary extra since they do their duty staying away from their family on festivals and occasions.
This scheme will be implemented from 1st January 2018. Police personnel are given houses to feel good,” he said.
The CM further said that criminals should be identified and action should be taken against them without delay. He said cops play an important role in implementing traffic system smoothly.
“By December, CCTV will be installed in Ranchi. It will help in effective crime control. Later, other cities will also be included. The government has approved to build 15 new police subdivisions, 6 new cyber police stations and 3 transport police stations. Police should be technology savvy in the modern digital age,” he said.
Das said that in Special India Reserve 956 Battalion, scheduled tribe (ST) category youths have been appointed. Demands for various police posts have been sent to JPSC. The youth of 12 extremism-affected districts are being appointed as assistant police officers, he said.
Chief Secretary Raj Bala Verma said, “The police department works for internal security. Adept police force is required everywhere. People are proud of police. The government is working to update and upgrade the police department. Crimes against women, extremism and cyber crimes are big challenges before police today.”
