Police rewards are common for exemplary work
We have seen in the past that many police personnel get rewarded for their exceptional work. A police constable from Chennai received cash rewards and praises from his seniors after he busted a gang of Royal Enfield thieves. The head constable got into action single-handedly after his friend’s Royal Enfield was stolen. During the investigation, he worked to retrieve 26 Royal Enfield bikes and busted a three-year-old bike theft racket working in different parts of Tamil Nadu.
Telangana Minister K.T. Rama Rao’s car received a challan on 2nd October for a traffic violation. Two days later, he called the police officers who issued the challan and commended their work. The minister called Sub-inspector of Police Ilaiah and constable Venkateshwarlu to his office. He then commended the work done by these police officers and also presented flower bouquets and shawls. The Police Commissioner of Hyderabad Police, Anjani Kumar was also present at the facilitation done by the minister.
For promoting good work by the police, even state ministers announce rewards for the personnel who do good work and show their dedication to the police forces.
