Police traffic personnel an asset - IGP

Police Traffic personnel are an asset to the Police Department. The image of the police department is built by the Police Traffic Division as they always meet the public on the streets, said IGP Mahinda Balasuriya at the distribution of certificates to 44 Traffic Police personnel, including three Women police personnel, who successfully followed a three months Junior Traffic Training Course conducted by the Police Traffic Headquarters.

The event was organized by the Traffic Police Headquarters Director DIG Lucky Peiris assisted by ASP Sumith Nissanka, Chief Inspectors K.L.S. Tillekeratne and Rohan Gamage of the Police Media centre.

Senior DIGs N.K. Ilangakoon, Gamini Navaratne, Nimal Mediwaka, DIGs Asoka Wijetilake, Lalith Jayasuriya, P.K.S. Pinidiya, Upali Gunasekera, Police Media Spokesman Senior SP S.M. Karunaratne, SPs and several other police personnel also participated.

IGP Mahinda Balasuriya said that they should put into practise what they learn from this course and educate other Traffic Officers in their respective police stations.

The Traffic Police personnel are very fortunate to follow a training course of this nature to develop their knowledge of traffic controlling as the police traffic division is a very important department in the police service. The Traffic Police personnel should maintain the dignity of the Police Department while they are engaged in official duties, the IGP added.

The IGP emphasised that as law enforcing officers traffic police personnel have a bounden duty to assist the public and the motorists. If a motorist violates traffic laws, the law enforcing officers could take necessary action against him according to the law of the country. Be courteous to the motorists.
