Nalgonda: Free coaching offered by the district Police has helped 120 candidates get the police constable job. The selected 120 candidates have pledged to work with dedication and commitment, and bring good reputation to the Police Department.
A programme was conducted in the police headquarters to congratulate the selected constables and extend appreciation certificates to the candidates, who attended free coaching.
In 2016, the then Superintendent of Police Vikram Jeet Duggal, after visiting free coaching classes conducted by a foundation in Nalgonda, took the initiative and launched free coaching for poor unemployed youth. Free coaching, accommodation and food, was provided to 800 candidates, who were selected after a screening test. Of them, 500 candidates appeared for written test after qualifying in physical tests. Finally, 120 candidates were selected for the post of constable.
Bangaru Lakshmi, a native of Suryapet town, said that one-month free coaching offered by the district police helped her in getting selected for the civil constable job. In addition to the subject faculty, police officers also took classes for them and extended suggestions on how to score more marks in the competitive exam.
“My parents are not there and I have been pursuing education by doing part time job. I utilised free coaching offered by the district police and got the job. I am thankful to Vikram Jeet Duggal and current SP N Prakash Reddy,” she said.
Another selected candidate Sridhar, a native of Bhongir said all required facilities were provided to them during one-month coaching at the District Training centre. We would always remain thankful to the Police Department for providing us free coaching.
A faculty member, Ashok Kumar said police officials took special care to conduct free coaching classes. They also counselled some of the candidates who wanted to quit the coaching mid-way and made them continue, he added.
Additional Superintendent of Police (Operations) N Venkateshwarlu said in addition to law and order duties, the district police had taken up the initiative of Jana Maithri (Community Policing and Friendly Policing) and Rakshith (SHE teams) to win the trust of people. The selected constables should also get ready to work in tune with them. The ultimate task of the police was to ensure safety and security to the people, and serve the needy people, he added.
Police officers also extended suggestions to the selected constables for discharging their duties after joining job. Women police State Circle Inspector Anuradha and others were also present.
