Odisha: Constables to get training for stress management, identify warning signs of suicide

Commissionerate of Police has signed an agreement with the Odisha state branch of the Indian Psychiatric Society to provide training to the constables for stress management.

Bhubaneswar: Police constables working under the jurisdiction of the Commissionerate of Police will be given different kinds of training including training for stress management and how to identify warning signs of suicide. The City police today signed an agreement in this regard with the Odisha state branch of the Indian Psychiatric Society.

“Constables share a big stage of responsibility for the society despite being in the lowest pillar of the police force. They usually serve as the connecting link between general public and higher authority as well as the government. While performing their duty as responsible law enforcement functions and as licensed peace officer they have to face various hurdles which in turn create a lot of stress in them. Therefore, it has been decided to give them training for stress management,” said Commissioner of Police, S K Priyadarshi.
