An Essay writing competition was held in Kannada and English for college students about their role in preventing crime. 10 students from two categories won the prizes. In the Kannada section, Taksha Jain from Mahaveera College Moodbidri won the first place, Shruti from Government First Grade College Sullia won the second place, Ranjan from Kadaba, Chethana S from Mahaveera College Moodbidri and Nirmala K from Haleangandi won the third place respectively.

On behalf of the winners, Vidhyashree expressed her thoughts and said that the essay competition has helped her to know more about the police department. She also said that if we are leading a peaceful life, we need to give all the credit to the police because they are the ones who work hard to provide protection to the citizens to lead a safe and peaceful life.

Taksha expressing her thoughts said, “I was afraid of the police, because I was not aware of the police department. Through the essay writing competition, I received an opportunity to interact with the police and to know more about their operations. We need to conduct such programmes often so that students can understand the police and their work. Police are the ones who safe guard the society by maintaining law and order, and helping the citizens in many other ways, yet we are ignorant about their service. When we are in trouble, we realise the importance of the police department.” She also thanked the police department for organizing the Essay competition for the students and urged the department to hold such programmes regularly and in a bigger way so that the youth can understand their duties and help the police in building a safe and secure society.

Apsara expressed her thoughts and said, “I was scared of the police but after participating in the Essay competition, I have realized that the police are working round the clock to maintain law and order to provide a safe and secure environment for the citizens.”

SP Dr Sharanappa speaking on the occasion said that the police department is striving hard to provide protection to the public. “To bring awareness among the students, we had organized the essay writing competition because we observe the month of December as a Crime prevention month. We have received a very good response from the students and 60 students have sent their essays regarding crime prevention on various topics. We have selected the best essays and awarded prizes to the winners.”

He further said that some people are now misusing technology and victimizing women, children and youth. Atrocities on women, sexual abuse and other crimes have also increased. “Our prime responsibility is to protect the citizens from various crimes. In Dakshina Kannada district, we have good infrastructure, educational institutions, medical facilities, etc., and at the same time, there are communal disturbances. The police department is short in manpower. We are inviting the citizens to join hands with the police department. the Police are for the public and public is for the police. Public should join hands with the police to ensure peace and harmony in the society.”

On February 7, an inter-collegiate skit competition will be held in Vivekananda College Puttur. The best skit will be recorded and presented in every programme. Station superintendent Ravichandra compered the programme. Sanjiva Gowda delivered the vote of thanks. Additional SP Shekabba was also present.
