Press Trust of India Bhubaneswar
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik Friday asked the state police to be polite as well as stern while dealing with public issues.
Stating that the state government is committed to provide all its citizens safety and security, Patnaik said any one approaching the police should find comfort in police stations.
"In modern times, police is expected to be stern but polite. This does not require any investment in money or resources. This just requires an investment in attitude," he said in a message at a programme of the Odisha Police Association.
Patnaik was scheduled to attend the programme but could not make it due to fever. Finance Minister S B Behera read out the chief minister's message at the function.
Patnaik asked the police personnel to keep improving their professional skills by learning and training as "This will enable you to align your skills with the present day requirements".
He said policing has become very complex with increasing cyber crimes, financial frauds and insurgency issues.
He said the state government has extended its support towards modernising the force by upgrading its technological, logistic and infrastructural requirement.
Lauding the work of the Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force, the chief minister said the force has rendered excellent service not only in Odisha, but also in other states.
