GOA POLICE IN THE SERVICE OF THE PEOPLE
Goa Police has made steady progress by adopting various steps to change its motto from being a force to a service. Field Marshall Kitchener has stated that THERE IS A GREAT CIVILIZING POWER IN POLICEMEN. A power, by which, he can make an impact on the society to the extent that he can be instrumental in changing the society.
If one goes through the history of Indian Police, there are many instances where Policemen in the line of duty have favourably contributed in bringing about a change in the society.
8th June is a very significant date in the history of Goa, as it symbolises the transfer of authority from Military Administration to Civil Administration 43 years ago. Police is a very important arm of the Civil Administration, thus Goa Police celebrates this week as Goa Police Day and the entire week as Goa Police Week.
During the week, utmost priority has been assigned to development of police community relationship and programmes like plantation of trees in close cooperation with the Forest Department, seminars & meetings for educating the public on road safety & crime prevention awareness etc are conducted. These symbolise our commitment to service, before self while performing our responsibilities in a straight upright and professional manner within parameters of law with utmost transparency without having any fear, favour or prejudice.
