Patna, Nov 15 (UNI) The Bihar government has embarked upon a multi-crore rupee scheme to modernise its police force further, besides improving its people-friendly image across the state.
Inaugurating an exhibition on the state law-enforcing agency at Sonepur near here today, Bihar Director General of Police (DGP) D N Gautam said in the present era of increased terrorist and other violent activities all over the country, it had become imperative for the state police force to improve its strength and firepower through modernisation, while simultaneously looking for a better relation with the people.
Unless police and the common people joined hands together, there was little scope to bring absolute peace in the society apart from controling criminal activities in the state, the DGP pointed out.
Also welcoming the state government's recent decision to improve the sagging morale of the Bihar police through latest technologies, Mr Gautam said unflinching support from the general public was equally important for the force to improve its moral to control criminal activities.
He said the government had also decided to appoint more youths into the state police force as part of its employment generation programme with attractive emoluments and hoped thousands of youths would respond to the call as expected.
