Nagaland Director General of Police, J Changkija has said that policing, today, has generally become very complex, bringing in new challenges everyday and that the present day law and order situation in the state has also become equally so. He maintained that “not only do we have to tackle the normal law and order problems but also deal with new security threats of terrorism that have emerged.”

The DGP was speaking as the chief guest at the attestation parade of the 33rd batch Cadet ASI Basic Course, 56th batch Recruit Constable Basic Course and 4th batch Condensed Basic Course for Computer Operators at the NAPTC ground at Chumukedima, on Wednesday. 

Referring to the recent attack in Mumbai, Changkija said the security of the entire country is threatened as was seen by the terrorist attacks in Mumbai just last week where twenty police officers and men made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of the nation.

The DGP said anti-social elements and the terrorists are highly-motivated, trained and very well-equipped and financed. Their tactics get better by the day, he said and “technology also gallops everyday”. Changkija said that the Police as the law-enforcing agency of the state, along with the country have to keep pace with all these progress and ‘even out-pace them otherwise we will be caught sleeping and when an unforeseen situation occurs we will be unprepared to tackle it’.

In this regard, the DGP urged all officers and men of the Nagaland Police to face the modern challenges and update themselves, not only physically but also mentally, to be prepared for the ever-mounting tasks demanded by modern society. “On the part of the department and the government, it will be our sincere and concerted effort to provide all facilities, to the extent realistically possible, to equip our forces and to train them and keep them prepared,” the DGP assured.
