    VISAKHAPATNAM: Applauding the services rendered by the home guards, Commissioner of Police V.S.K. Kaumudi on Tuesday called upon them to utilise the six per cent reservation quota available for them in the Police Department recruitment.

    He was speaking as chief guest at the 42nd home guards Raising Day celebrations in the Police Parade Grounds here.

    The Police Department would provide support for the betterment of the conditions of home guards, Mr. Kaumudi assured them.

    Insurance cover would also be extended to home guards and measures taken for enabling them to utilise the facilities at the police hospital that would be opened soon, he said. Stressing the importance of punctuality and discipline, the Commissioner said that those who were committed to their duties and showed bravery in life-saving and crime detection activities would be suitably rewarded. On the negative side, services of those who violated the rules would be terminated, he added.
