I am delighted to address and interact with the Student Police Cadets. India needs disciplined societies. Disciplined societies lead to societal tolerance, societal peace, societal commitment to green homes and above all a happy family.
My best wishes to all Student Police Cadets participating in this programme for success in your mission to be a responsible citizen and partnering with the Kerala Police for making Kerala safer, peaceful and the better state to live.
The cadets imbibe civic sense, a feeling of equality, secular outlook, inquisitiveness, leadership qualities and spirit of adventure through the proposed training. The SPC combine the discipline of NCC with the spirit of social serice of NSS.Sri.V.S. Achuthanandan, Former Chief Minister
The SPC project will not only create a new generation of law-abiding citizens, but also develop good students. Only good students could become good SPCs. Therefore students need to be facilitated to develop health and physical fitness, a good academic record and up-to-date general knowledge, as part of the SPC training.Sri.Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, Deputy Opposition Leader of Kerala
Community policing, the Police-People Partnership in curbing crime and maintaining peace, will be the order of the day in the future. The efficacy of policing will be nullified unless the community is taken into confidence. The Student Police Cadet Scheme should be spread across the county.Sri.T K A Nair, Advisor to Prime Minister of India
SPCs are students trained to lead the India of the future. The SPC proogramme seeks to evolve a mechanism designed to strengthen and heal the society, protecting its degeneration into chaos and anarchy. As SPCs, your aim is to work for the good of human society.Sri.K. Jayakumar IAS, Former Chief Secretary of Kerala
The resonance is very obvious among all those who have been introduced to the project. This is a good beginning. At the same time, they should also take care to democratize the project and not just focus on regimenting it.Sri.V.N. Rai IPS, Director, Sardar Vallabhai Patel National Police Academy
I am impressed at the enthusiasm of each of you cadets. The lessons learnt from the programme need to be replicated across the country.Sri.Radha Vinod Raju IPS, Former head of National Investigation Agency (NIA)
Each of you SPCs must keep in mind the value of discipline and cultivate pride in wearing a uniform. Police leaders in every state were looking at various models of community policing in order to make the police machinery more responsive to the respective populations. In this context, the SPC project is a worthwhile model for police organizations in other states in the country.Sri.Hormese Tharakan IPS, Former DGP-Kerala and ex-Raw Chief
