Police traffic personnel an asset - IGP

Police Traffic personnel are an asset to the Police Department. The image of the law enforcement section is built by the Police Traffic Division as they always get together the public on the streets, said IGP Mahinda Balasuriya at the sharing of certificates to 44 Traffic Police personnel, including three Women police personnel, who effectively followed a three months Junior Traffic Training route conducted by the Police transfer Headquarters.
The event was prearranged 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.

IGP Mahinda Balasuriya said that they should put into practise what they study from this course and teach other Traffic Officers in their own police stations.
The Traffic Police workers are very fortunate to follow a training course of this nature to develop their information of traffic controlling as the police traffic separation is a very significant department in the police repair. The Traffic Police personnel should uphold the dignity of the Police Department while they are busy in bureaucrat duties, the IGP added.
The IGP emphasised that as law enforcing officers traffic police personnel have a bounden duty to help 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 polite to the motorists.
The Junior Traffic Police personnel, who followed the training course, praised the organisers of the training course. They said that it was a very important preparation which equipped them for day to day behavior in the field.
