Five cops were honoured with the ‘Best Police Constable’ award for their services by Rotary Mysore West and Inner Wheel Club of Mysore West at Hotel Regaalis in city yesterday.

City Police Commissioner K.L. Sudheer presented the award to Babu Lokanath from Udayagiri Police Station (Law & Order Branch), Rame Gowda from Kuvempunagar Police Station (Crime Branch), Venkata Ramu from K.R. Police Station (Traffic Branch), Vanajakshi from Vijayanagar Police Station (Investigations Division) and Gurudevaradhya from Mysore City CCB.

Speaking later, Sudheer said Police protect the society from untoward happenings by toiling day and night. It is laudable that such cops are recognised and honoured by associations and clubs, he added.

Due to the hard work of the Police, the elections to both the Urban Local Bodies and State Assembly could be conducted smoothly, he said appreciatively.

Nowadays, more than higher officials, even Police Constables have higher education like degree and post-graduation and are well-versed in technology.

About 80 per cent of Constables do not have proper resi-dential or even basic facilities like higher officials, yet they do their work efficiently and maintain peace in society, Sudheer said praising his department’s staff.
