He said, “No senior officer wants to work with a lukewarm personnel. You all must make good names for yourselves in the force.
“You have to be known as fearless, incorruptible officers. Be strict, decent and very professional. Do not disappointed your families nor bring the force to disrepute. Be counted among the good eggs.
