BENGALURU: City Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao has called upon senior policemen to check the mobile addiction of new generation of police officers.
He was addressing a group of Head Constables (HC) on Thursday who got promoted as Assistant Sub Inspectors (ASI) at the Commissioner’s office.
Rao said the promoted officers belonged to older generation and their mobile usage was not much in their times.
He said junior officers lacked concentration and they were addicted to the use of mobiles and internet.
The police commissioner said young officers just believe whatever comes on the mobile. Most of the times, false news is propagated on the mobile, he stated. “I am giving a yoga chart of 20 minutes to all policemen. It will have instructions on breathing exercises to be followed. I have observed that by the time policemen 44-45 years they are suffering liver and kidney failure. Yoga will help them cope with stress,” Rao explained.
The service of police officers is much needed. However, there is a lack of strength. “I have asked for the arrangement of private security,” he added. Rao maintained that, what’s work without a promotion.
Sandeep Patil, Joint Commissioner of Crime said he had worked under Commissioner Rao when he was with the KSRP. “Commissioner Rao had brought about changes there. Similarly, he will make a difference as a commissioner,” he said.
DCP Vartika Katiyar was also present....
