Srinagar: Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh Monday urged the officers of the region’s police to give attention to “neutralising militancy” and timely “disposal of crime cases”, commending them for their ‘dedication’ in the rescue operations launched in view of the untimely snowfall that occurred on Saturday, PTI reported.
He also appreciated their efforts in ensuring a smooth and hassle free ‘Darbar Move’– a practice under which the government functions six months each in Srinagar and Jammu. Singh said that whenever faced with a challenge, the state police has come out with flying colors.
“The officers should give attention to disposal of crime cases, curbing the bovine and narcotics smuggling and neutralising militancy,” Singh said at a high level meeting in Jammu.
Civil Secretariat – the seat of Jammu and Kashmir government, Raj Bhavan and other offices reopened in the winter capital after functioning for six months in Srinagar during the summer season.
The DGP impressed upon the officers to continue their good work and also hailed their contribution as first responders.
“Police personnel have to help the people sometimes at the cost of their own comforts,” he said, advising the officers to work on the positions with more dedication.
He paid homage to police martyrs at a memorial in the morning, and later reached police headquarters for receiving a ceremonial guard of honour.
“All wings are important and all jobs designated for the respective posts are important,” Singh said urged upon the officers to strengthen the personnel of the state police.
He asked the officers to conduct formal inspections of police stations and administrative inspections of the offices.
The DGP further highlighted that work was on to modernize the force and provide housing infrastructure, equipment and training to its personnel.
“Police is working on modernisation and up-gradation of police control room Jammu and other units,” he said, adding efforts would be made to strengthen the city, highway and border grid.
