Bhubaneswar: Commissionerate Police’s 9th Raising Day Parade was observed at the OSAP 7th Battalion Ground here.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik was the chief guest of the event and DGP Kunwar Brajesh Singh was the guest of honour.
During the event, the Chief Minister said, “I congratulate the twin city police commissionerate on its Raising Day occasion and thank policemen and policewomen who have performed their duties successfully.”
The Chief Minister also emphasised on the need for better rapport of police with the public while addressing the event.
“Commissionerate Police has lived up to the expectations of the people. The police will keep on improving themselves and provide better security. The twin city police will ensure better security for its denizens,” the DGP said.
On the occasion, twin city police commissioner Yogesh Bahadur Khurania mentioned the need for recruitment of more personnel in the Commissionerate Police and said, “In 2017, the twin city cops will work in a better way and win the faith of people. New initiatives will be launched in the year and advanced professional skills will be acquired.”
Some police officers were awarded for their work followed by a lively parade at the function.
At a time when repeated eve-teasing incidents are being reported in the twin cities, Chinmayee (23), a resident of Bhubaneswar, who had chased and thrashed three bike-borne youths after they tried to snatch her mobile phone last year here, bagged a special police job with the Cuttack-Bhubaneswar Twin City Commissionerate of Police.
The city police Tuesday appointed Chinmayee as special police officer (SPO) on the occasion of 9th Raising Day of the Commissionerate Police.
Around 111 students were also appointed as traffic volunteers during the event.
