Dr. Kalam addresses IPS Trainee Officers

Amritsar/ 26.07.2008
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, former President of India, addressed IPS trainee Officers. Dr. Kalam was here in the holy city to attend some programmes related to social cause. He also met students of various schools informally. The officer trainees came to Amritsar regarding cultural cum educational tour from National Police Academy Hyderabad.

SSP Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh took this coincidence as an opportunity to organise an interactive session with Dr. Kalam for the benefit of the Trainee Officers. Dr. Kalam also took this opportunity for the good of the country. He asked the officers to maintain values and ethical standards in policing to help India to become a role model. He emphasised on self discipline and character building for the officers so that they can be able to work for the common people.
He also put emphasis on the use of new technologies for the convenience of the common citizens. He appreciated the efforts made by Amritsar Police to lodge FIRs on the basis of information received through e-mail. He stressed upon the need of providing justice on the doorsteps of the citizens and the police can play pivotal role in this.

He also administered oath to the officers ‘to perform with integrity and to gain courage to succeed with integrity’ to work for the poorest section of the society.

Giving importance to ‘knowledge’ he said that Knowledge is the most valuable wealth in the global village. In the words of Dr. Kalam:
“Learning gives creativity
Creativity leads to thinking
Thinking provides knowledge
Knowledge makes you great”

This was a very interactive and useful session and the officers also asked a number of queries. It was an overwhelming experience for the officers. At this occasion Mr. Ajay Kumar Nand, Assistant Director of National Police Academy Hyderabad was also present besides Amritsar SSP Kunwar Vijay Pratap Singh.
