Police Commemoration Day Parade 2009

Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today called upon the State police to effectively curb the terror groups and naxal menace, which was growing in the country. Speaking at the Police Commemoration Day Parade here, the Chief Minister said terror groups, anti-national elements, naxals as well as foreign nationals, who stayed back despite their visas being expired should be dealt with iron-hand. Mr Yeddyurappa said ''The crime incidents are on the rise and the Government would fully support the police force in tackling it. The department should ensure that every one of those who act against the law be brought to books''. The State Government had ensured enough budgetary allocations and implemented various welfare schemes for the police, he added. The Chief Minister hailed the efforts made by the police personnel in providing relief to the affected people during the floods that wrecked havoc in 15 North Karnataka districts early this month. Meanwhile, Mr Yeddyurappa announced that police constables, henceforth would get promoted in a time-bound manner, as the Government had streamlined the promotion. Constables who have completed 18 years of service would be promoted as Head Constable, seven years later as ASIs and once they completed 28 years of service, they would be elevated as Sub Inspectors, he added. The Chief Minister also announced an increase in grant-in-aid for the Police Welfare Fund from the present Rs 50 lakh to Rs one crore. He said the Government would appoint 3840 constables and other officers during the current financial year. Three more armed reserve battalions would be raised in the State, he added. Mr Yeddyurappa also read out the names of 20 policemen, who had laid their lives while on duty in the State during the last one year.(Mangalorean)

Karnataka is a leader in IT. There is an expectation that Karnataka police should be cyber savvy.

However, except the Cyber Crime Police Station other Police officers such as the Commissioner does not seem to be use e-mails.

It is necessary for all Police officers to hold e-mail addresses which should be displayed on the websites for public access.

Hope you can provide the necessary instructions.
