Bhubaneswar: There is a sea change in performance expectation from Government employees. Timely and appropriate delivery of services is of prime importance today, Chief Secretary Asit Tripathy said today.
Addressing Odisha Police Services (OPS) probationers at the Lok Seva Bhavan here, Tripathy said that this would be possible only when the officers work in a team in most transparent manner.
Policemen should be mobile and maximise use of technology. Since police is the only visible Government personnel in public places and roads because of their uniform, they should always behave sympathetically towards the citizens. They should cultivate the traits of a responsible citizen in their personal life as well, he added.
“As the salary in Government sector today is comparable to private sectors and Government job provides you a sense of security, you should also prepare yourself to come up to expectations of Government in serving the citizens,” he added.
Odisha has 367 police stations, 435 fire service stations and 83 jails. We have also various categories of armed police wings. The per capita availability of police institutions in Odisha is higher than many other bigger states. These provide varied scopes to police officers for expression of their inner talent and innovation in duties.
Tripathy advised the officers to enhance their efficiency and professionalism to meet the unprecedented challenges coming up in criminal as well as civil society scenario today.
Fifteen Probationers under training in Biju Patnaik State Police Academy led by DSP Udayabhanu Mishra participated in the interaction today. It was revealed during the interactive session that young men and women with higher professional qualification and work experience in corporate sectors have joined the Odisha Police Service in this batch.
