Udhampur: Jammu and Kashmir Chief
Minister Omar Abdullah onMonday asked the state police to double
up as best friends of the people who had great expectations
from the force.

"People have greater expectations from JK Police. You have
to give people the feeling of being their best friend," Omar
said, addressing the cadets at the passing out parade at
Sher-i-Kashmir Police Academy here.

A batch of 489 Sub-Inspector cadets passed out from the
SKPA and joined the police service. This is the largest
passing out batch from the Academy so far.

Asking the cadets to make justice and public service
benchmark of their duty, the Chief Minister impressed upon
them to prove themselves worthy of the uniform and public
trust they have assumed on entering the JKP force.

"Honesty should be your standard and justice basis of
your performance", he told them adding that they have to come
up to the expectations of people and their seniors.

DGP Kuldeep Khoda lauded the force for combating militancy
and dealing with tense law and order situations.

"Jammu and Kashmir Police has emerged as one of the best
police forces in the country," DGP said.
