The Hindu : Other States / Orissa News : Workshop on RTI for police officials

 

Workshop on RTI for police officials

 

BERHAMPUR: A workshop was organised in the city on Wednesday to sensitise police officials of southern range about the Right to Information Act.

 

It was first of its kind effort in the State.

 

This workshop had been organised by the Orissa State Police Training Academy in collaboration with the commissioner of RTI of Orissa. Similar efforts to sensitise police officials about RTI would also be taken up in other police ranges in coming days.

 

Police officials from Ganjam, Gajapati, Kandhamal and Boudh districts especially the ones in charge of posts of Public Information Officer (PIO) and Assistant Public Information Officer (APIO) attended this workshop.

 

The Inspector General of Police and director of Biju Patnaik Poliec Training Academy, Satyajit Mohanty, Revenue Divisional Commissioner (RDC), southern division, Satyabrata Sahu, Deputy Inspector General of Police, R.P.Koche also took part in this workshop.

 

The RDC elaborated the intricacies of the RTI and how it was beneficial for the police force as well as general public. The IGP Mr Mohanty urged the police officials to eradicate the false fears they have in mind regarding the RTI. According to him the RTI can be a major catalyst to get general public close to the police.

 

More transparency would increase relation between the police and the public, which would increase efficiency of the police force, he said. As per the experts taking part in the workshop, it was high time for the grass root level police officers to learn the practicalities of RTI, which has become a major tool in the hands of common mass.
