Centre approves another post of DGP

S. Rajendran

S.T. Ramesh promoted as Director-General of Police, Training



S.T. Ramesh

BANGALORE: The Centre has approved one more post of Director-General of Police for Karnataka with the specific charge of police training. This post will be valid only for a year.

Acting on the approval given by the Centre, the State Government has promoted the senior most Additional Director-General of Police, S.T. Ramesh, as Director-General of Police, Training. The State had requested the Centre to grant two more posts of Directors General of Police (one of cadre and another ex-cadre). But the Centre rejected it stating that there could be only one cadre post of DGP for every 100 posts of IPS in a State.

The number of IPS posts in the State is 172. The State has four DGPs, two of cadre and two of ex-cadre. Mr. Ramesh will be the fifth DGP. The post of Director-General of Police was created in 1982 and the late G.V. Rao was the first DGP and IGP of the State.

Mr. Ramesh told The Hindu that he would focus on all-round improvement in police training given the new challenges, new dimensions in policing and the emerging problems. “It is a big responsibility and there are many challenges. We have to equip and educate the new recruits on aspects relating to social legislation, human rights, terrorism, etc,” he said.

The strength of the Karnataka police is one lakh, and 4,000 constables and other ranks of police personnel are added to the force every year.

He said it is necessary to inculcate knowledge, attitude, skills and values in police personnel. It is with respect to imparting these to trainees that the real challenge for a police trainer begins. Attitude becomes critical. Unless police demonstrate the right attitude before various sensitive groups “in our society such as women, children, members of SCs and STs, senior citizens, physically challenged, sexual minorities, victims of crime, and so on, it is impossible to win their trust and confidence so essential for the effectiveness of police. Values are ingrained in a person's upbringing and they are difficult to be taught,” he said.

Mr. Ramesh said he will focus on compassion to the victims of crime, adherence to values such as human rights, rule of law and integrity.
