Press Releases


Rashtrapati Bhavan : 12.10.2018

A group of probationers of the 70 RR (2017 batch) of the Indian Police Service called on the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, today (October 12, 2018) at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Addressing the probationers, the President said that being an IPS officer, they have an enormous responsibility on their shoulders. The Indian Police Service is one of the pillars of our national administrative system. It is also a service that defines the trust of common citizens in our police forces. Citizens see IPS officers as officers who will uphold the rule of law and enable delivery of justice.

The President said that in many ways the police represents and symbolises the quality of the state itself. For a common citizen, the impression of the state and governance is formed by interactions with and impressions of the traffic constable at the signal, the beat officer on neighbourhood patrol and the reception desk officer in a police station. We must do everything required to make basic policing better and that is the hallmark of a sensitive and professional police force. This would help us build an environment where citizens fear and respect the law – rather than fear the law enforcer.
