Kochi: Thirty seven Assistant Commandants of the Coast Guard, including six women officers, today passed out of the Coast Guard Training centre here after successfully completing the Law and Operations course.

Their passing out parade was reviewed by Inspector General Satya Prakash Sharma, Regional Commander Coast Guard Region East.
During the parade, Assistant Commandant Rahul Lodhi was awarded the Sword of Honour for being adjudged the first in order of merit.

Addressing the parade, Inspector General Sharma said maritime security continues to be uncertain and fluid and asked them to be prepared for a variety of roles, ranging from rescue operations during natural calamities to anti-piracy operations.
He exhorted them to etch the Coast Guard motto `Vayam Rakshma` (We Protect) in their hearts and soul as they discharge their duties and spoke on professionalism, leading by example, moral courage and team loyalty.

The 12 week course, conducted twice a year, comprises subjects including ocean management and pollution response, search and rescue, international maritime law, civil law and fisheries.
In addition to specialist officers from the Coast Guard, faculty from the Law College, Passport Office, Police Department, Customs and Central Excise, Narcotics Control Bureau and Port Trust also conduct the lectures. Emphasis is placed on outdoor activities and leadership training as well.

Deputy Inspector General T K S Chandran, Commander Coast Guard, was among those present on the occasion.
