Real-life cops must not get influenced with reel-life cops: PM Modi
New Delhi : New police officers must not get influenced with the reel-life police officers, PM Narendra Modi said on Friday, adding some policemen these days prefer to show up first and miss out on main aspect of policing.
Addressing the 2018 batch of IPS probationers at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy through video conferencing, he also mentioned that the police officials must avoid getting indulged into wrongdoings as they may end up in big troubles due to latest technologies.
"Some policemen who join new duty want to first show-off... scare people... And anti-social elements should shiver from hearing my name itself.... after watching films like ''Singham'', it gets over their mind and because of it those works which need to be done get missed out," PM Modi noted.
"Nowadays technology plays an important role in crime detection, be it CCTV footage, mobile tracking...it helps you in a big way. But, the same technology is also responsible for suspension of police personnel nowadays...," PM Modi warned.
Responding to a woman probationer, PM Modi heaped praise on the people of Kashmir, saying they are ''lovely'' people and having special ability to learn new things.
"I am very connected to these people. They treat you with so much love... All of us together, we have to work towards stopping the children from taking a wrong direction.
"And this can be done by our women police officers efficiently. Our women force can effectively work in educating the mothers and bringing back those children. I am confident if you do that, in the initial stage itself we can prevent our children from getting into the wrong path," PM Modi said.
