Nagaland chief minister, Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu on Friday called upon the Nagaland Police Service officers to maintain standard of work and physical fitness, saying being overweight was unbecoming of a uniformed service.
He was speaking as chief guest at the 46th General Conference of Nagaland Police Service Association (NPSA) held here at Police Complex, Chumukedima.
Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu reminded the officers of their “indispensible role in maintaining law and order in the state”, urging them to be impartial, more dedicated and more disciplined than other categories of government employees.
Transfer or posting, he said, was “putting the right person at the right place” and therefore shouldn’t be considered a punishment. “Few transfers will be affected soon,” he hinted.
The chief minister further maintained that the image of the police needs to be improved in order to ensure effective policing in a modern society. “This has to be earned by the police themselves by becoming more efficient, friendly and helpful, while also becoming less corrupt in public perception,” the chief guest added.
Dr. Shürhozelie also lauded the police force, saying Nagaland police has been doing quite well in maintaining law and order and had brought laurels to the state.
“You cannot afford to remain contend with what you already know,” the CM said, accentuating on the need to keep updated with various technologies, keeping in mind the changing dynamics of crime in a sophisticated world.
Citing the recent ransomware attacks that affected computers across the world, Dr. Liezietsu said: “Ultimately, Nagaland Police also will have to brace up for investigating such types of cyber crimes.” He also suggested developing a software and to put in experts to man the systems for effective management.
On the need for reforms in the state police, the chief minister pointed out, among other things, the “faulty system of police recruitment” that had attracted much criticism in the media. He was hopeful that such issues would be deliberated during the conference and come up with suggestions and solutions for consideration of the government.
ADGP (Adm), L. Singsit also spoke on the occasion as special guest. On the occasion, NPSA president, Vekhosa Chakesang, submitted a representation to the chief minister. The chief minister was accompanied by Home minister Y. Patton.
