Bhubaneswar, Oct 18 (LocalWire): ‘Policemen should be mobile and make maximum use of technology,’ said Chief Secretary Asit Tripathy while interacting with the Odisha Police Service probationers in Lokseva Bhawan conference hall today afternoon.
‘Since police is the only visible government personnel in public places and roads because of their uniform, they should always behave sympathetically towards citizens.
They should cultivate the traits of a responsible citizen in their personal life as well,’ he said.
‘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 the government in serving citizens.’
Today there is a sea change in performance expectation from the government employees. Timely and appropriate delivery of services is of prime importance today.
‘This will be possible only when you work in a team in most transparent manner.’
