Bedi said that the Superintendents of Police shoulder a great responsibility are as they are the leaders on the ground while senior officers play a supervisory role. She exhorted them to start their day early in the morning and follow a strict daily regimen of going to the field and meeting with the people.
Dr. Bedi, who is a distinguished former Indian Police Service officer, was delivering the Valedictory address to the 2nd Conference of Young Superintendents of Police, organized by the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) in collaboration with Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).
Dr. Bedi was all praise for the BPR&D for bringing together young police officers and technologically advanced companies dealing in security equipment besides the experts in this field. She recalled her days with BPR&D as its chief and expressed satisfaction over its growth in the following years. About the two-day conference of young SPs, she said that this should be made mandatory for every SP instead of limiting it to only 100 of them. She further suggested that BPR&D should start one-time training for the benefit of the entire police force on relevant subjects by use of appropriate technology.
