Schools debate cop role

To mark 150 years of service of the Indian police force, Bokaro’s men in uniform and district mandarins on Thursday inaugurated a three-day programme at Guru Govind Singh Public School to discuss and debate the changing role of police.

Students of 20 schools — including St Xavier’s, Chinmaya School, DPS, Guru Govind Singh Public School and Sardar Patel School — participated in the workshop and debate. Durgesh of Sardar Patel was adjudged the best speaker.

Giving a brief history of the force, Coal Belt DIG Laxman Singh revealed how police transformed from mere tax collectors to trusted sentinels of a country.

Speaking on the occasion, North Chotanagpur IG Murarilal Meena shed light on changing faces of police in India, which is now more people-friendly. “But, the goal is yet to be achieved. We need to work better to get desired results,” Meena said.
