Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Thursday said that the kind of talk by certain police officers is often repugnant. He said that timely reformations are not being brought forth in the police force. The CM commented on the matter while addressing the passing out parade of SIs.
"Even though the country has attained its independence, major changes are not seen within the police force. The wrong kind of behaviour of police officers, even though they are isolated events, may invite damage to the name of the police force. The officers must realise that they are not meant to talk in such repugnant way," said the CM.
"The police officers were able to stand with the people during the time of the pandemic and floods in 2018. However, certain isolated events that took place in the state after that are affecting the image of the force," he said.
The CM also said that the change must be brought even in the methods of training of the police officers.
