Puducherry, July 16: Puducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi said on Sunday, July 17 modernisation of police force would be done soon with the help of funds available from the Centre.
Beat constables would be trained in using computers and the personnel would be trained in a phased manner to cover all the constables in a year's time.
Handing over cash awards and commendation certificates to beat constables and Inspectors of Police of all the four regions of Puducherry, Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam in recognition of their meritorious work in detection of crimes at a function here today the Lt Governor said that beat constables "are eyes and ears" of the government and their work would be immensely helpful for prevention of crimes.
She said that she would hold meetings with beat constables once in three months and she would soon hold meetings with Investigation officers to get feed back from them for introduction of reforms.
Bedi said she had also plan to offer education and introduce skill development programmes to the convicts as soon as they came out of prison after serving imprisonment so that they would not relapse into committing crimes again.
