Addressing the gathering, Shekarappa said that a fit body and healthy lifestyle was of paramount importance in the police profession. He asked all policemen to maintain patience, courage and have compassion towards the public. “People don’t realize the important role played by the police and are usually taken for granted, but we need to maintain our pride and work towards a good society,” he added. Shekarappa advised every policeman to be accountable to their seniors.


Police Commissioner Chandrasekhar said, “Gratitude is the biggest virtue and it is necessary to show it to the policemen who have sacrificed their lifestyle in the line of duty. Policemen sacrifice precious times meant to be spent with families from the moment they wear their uniform up until the day of their retirement.” He urged people to contribute towards the police welfare fund as 25% of the entire fund would be used to provide welfare to the retired police personnel.
