Be Practical Not Ethical
Though Delhi Police’s motto is ‘Shanti, Sewa, Nyaya’, during the recently held passing out parade of DANIPS officers, a senior officer enlightened the newly inducted officers about a different theory of working. He asked the young officers to handle a situation ‘practically’ instead of dealing with it ‘ethically’. Asking them to learn the working of police, he said police have a lot of ‘other’ things to do.
Cherry on Cake
How happy an officer can be after a case is solved, that he cuts a cake to celebrate. So boundless was the joy of DCP East after his team rescued a doctor, who was kidnapped by a cab driver and another man, with the help of UP Police, and celebrated lavishly in a party, where a cake was cut. But later, ADG Meerut cleared the air by revealing in the media that it was a joint operation.
Lesson of Dignity
To maintain its dignity and teach a lesson of professionalism to the department, Delhi Police has prepared a sample letter head that will now be used to send all letters being dispatched from the Police HQ. Officials are claiming that, the letters written by the department on plain A4 sheets for any communication were questioned. The new sample letter drafted in Hindi and English will have to followed from now on.
United Colours of Khaki
Police and army are considered the most disciplined professions, but an SHO’s non-serious attitude towards the khaki displeased his senior. A joint commissioner rank officer pulled up an SHO for wearing non-matching khaki shirt and trousers. The SHO, who had come to meet the officer, was asked to report again in a proper uniform.
