Asks GBs to stay alert to IBI threat 

Dimapur, October 12: Nagaland Home Minister, Y Patton today called upon Dimapur police to be prepared to acclimatize to different challenges in order to create a safe and secure society. He said the police have the professional responsibility demanding highest standard of conduct, particularly those of honesty and integrity.

Inaugurating the office building of the Commissioner of Police, Dimapur here today at the Old SP Office, Patton stated that the primary responsibilities and duties of police should be exhibited and be made more visible by the Dimapur Police Commissionerate, saying a peaceful Dimapur shall substantially contribute towards peace in the State as a whole. 

"Dimapur is the gateway of Nagaland and if there is problem here, there will be problems everywhere else (of the state)," he said.

Patton also asked GBs of Dimapur not to allow anyone new to settle anywhere under their jurisdiction without first having done a proper verification of the new faces. He said the verification is necessary because they might be illegal immigrants and create problems before disappearing from the scene.

He also asked the GBs to cooperate with the police for better policing of Dimapur and urged them to take care of public assets like the 16 CCTVs that have been installed in Dimapur from being damaged by miscreants.

Dedicating the new office building for the service of the people, Patton appreciated the contractor for handing over the completed building before the stipulated time. He hoped that the new building will have positive impact in the functioning of the Police Commissionerate.  

Parliamentary Secretary Tovihoto Ayemi in his address said that Dimapur has more issues compared to other places because of the diverse communities living  policing has been tremendously visible in the district, it still has room for improvements and warned that the government won't tolerate misconduct and non-performing police officers won't find a place in the commissionerate system.

DGP L.L. Doungel, IPS said that if people want a robust policing, they need to support police and advised the department to keep updating and be dynamic so as to improve the quality of society.

Commissioner of police Limasunep Jamir, IPS, in his opening remark had said that the new office is a symbol of progress for the police and the force would uphold the trust shown by the government by introducing the commissionerate system which has empowered the force with magistrate power and has facilitated the department to deal situations in a better way.

Naga Council president Pangerloba Longkumer, DUCCF chairman Tsenthungo Lotha and DCCI president Akashe Zhimomi were the others who also addressed the gathering. 

Spread over an area of 4496 sqft, and constructed under HUDCO scheme 2016-17, the three-storey building has 37 rooms, one court and one conference hall. The construction of the building had started on March 2, 2016 and completed on August 31, 2017. (Page News Service)
