New Delhi, Oct 21 (UNI) Director General of the Indo-Tibet Border Police (ITBP) V K Joshi today stressed that police officers should keep in mind core values of honesty, integrity and respect for human rights while discharging their duties.
''The core values of honesty, integrity and respect for Human rights should always be kept in mind while discharging our duties, especially in strife torn areas of the country,'' Mr Joshi said in his address to ITBP officers on the occasion of Police Commemmoration Day.
Speaking at a function at the ITBP 'Shaheed Smarak' at Tigri campus, the DG exhorted all police officers to rededicate themselves to the unity and integrity of the country so that we can come out stronger.
