IGP Aryal directs cops to adapt to change

Kathmandu, May 24

Inspector General of Police Prakash Aryal today said that it was expedient for each member of Nepal Police to change his/her mindset to adapt to the changed system of governance.

Addressing a special function organised in Naxal-based Nepal Police Headquarters to confer insignia on newly-recruited inspectors, he said, “As the nation has already got a new constitution and state restructuring is under way, there is no denying the fact that Nepal Police will also be restructured in line with the constitutional provisions. Therefore, we all should be prepared to change our mindset to adapt to the changed context.”

Nepal Police had recently appointed 50 inspectors as per the May 21 Cabinet decision. After conferring insignia on inspectors, IGP Aryal directed them to discharge their duties and responsibilities to the best of their abilities and to abide by laws and rules in force besides conducting themselves in a manner, on and off the job.

“What we do on the job is also linked to the prestige of life post-retirement. You have immense potentials to enhance your prestige both on and off the job. For this, you should start acting now. Excellent performance will yield excellent results for you and the security body simultaneously,” he suggested.

IGP Aryal directed all cops to prove wrong the ‘different allegations levelled against the police organisation’ by resolving the problems and challenges facing it in the present context. However, he did not say what the ‘allegations’ were.

IGP Aryal also underscored the need to timely enhance the quality of police service and highlighted why police should be more responsible towards the victims and the needy.

“We should never fail to deliver service as per people’s aspirations,” he said.
