"Police should not fail"

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: At a function steeped in nostalgia, Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi inaugurated the 150th year celebrations of the Chennai Metropolitan Police here on Thursday.

He said the police should not fail in their duty for ensuring a peaceful society. Addressing the function, marked by police skill demonstrations and a cultural programme, at the Rajaratnam Stadium here, he referred to a Tirukkural couplet that praised a duty-conscious policeman. It emphasised that the police should discharge their duties properly. He announced that 15,000 officers and men who would have served the city police for more than six months between April 25, 2006 and April 24 this year would be presented a medal. Also, 14,973 constables and officers up to the grade of Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police would be given "Arm Patch," he said amidst loud cheer from policemen.

Mr.Karunanidhi detailed the benefits given to the police after his Government took over, including the increase in risk allowance, removing age restrictions for promotion and abolishing test for promotion of head constable to sub-inspector.
