NAP ceremonial attestation parade
DIMAPUR, AUGUST 22
Another 133 personnel took the oath on Thursday morning to swear-in as full-fledged members of the Nagaland police force here at Nagaland Armed Police Training Centre, Chumukedima. The 133 contingent include personnel from Village Guard Units, Vigilance and Anti-corruption and NPTO. The trainees had undergone a 3 months condensed basic course.
Inspector General of Police (Training and Border), Renchamo P Kikon was the chief guest. Kikon in his address noted that 80% of the trainees, who had passed out on Thursday, had already been in service for the last 15 years.
“So the elusive aspect that you have been lacking for the past 15 years has been realized today,” he told the contingent.
Kikon advised the newly passed out personnel to be role models in the society. “Your oath in itself is a reaffirmation of the very purpose of training,” he said.
The IGP reminded them that the purpose of the training course was not only to make the personnel aware of the law as well as their roles and responsibilities. “The purpose is to instill self-confidence in you,” he said while challenging them to be disciplined, not just while performing duty, but also in their life outside a policeman.
Award winners include C/N (Dvr) Shilumeren (Vigilance) in PT, C/N (Msgr) Chenithung Odyuo (DEF Wokha) in Drill, Jamadar Yangyangsomba (Vigilance) in Musketry and C/N (Messenger) Temsumongla (DEF Mokokchung) in Conduct.
