Nepal Police celebrates 52nd anniversary

Kathmandu, October 17:

Inspector General of the Nepal Police (IGP), Om Bikram Rana, said today the department has prioritised the development of human resources for making the organisation effective and people-oriented.

“The organisation has already outlined a 11-point policy which it wants to put into practice in a meaningful way,” Rana said while speaking at a function organised to mark the 52nd anniversary of the Nepal Police.

The Nepal Police is at final stage to establish its Crime Investigation Bureau, Rana said, adding that the establishment of the bureau would help produce specialised investigators. “This will also help modernise the investigation procedures,” he added.

IGP Rana also said the organisation has made much headway in terms of developing physical infrastructure. “We have installed modern technology in the busiest offices and added enough vehicles to make the police service prompt and effective,” he said. During the function, Rana also gave away appreciation letters and compensation to the families of the police personnel who were killed while performing their duties.
