Govt to recognize work of policemen on frontline – Times of India

Aurangabad: As a token of recognition for the work being done by the policemen on frontline and to boost morale of the force, the state home department is considering to reward them with medals.
Authorities said that it is a rare feat for the state to come up with special medals to recognize policemen’s contribution during a pandemic. Home department is considering giving two different medals depending on the role played by each policeman during the frontline duties.
State home minister Anil Deshmukh through deputy secretary (home) has sent a communication to the state director general of police chief Subodhkumar Jaiswal asking him to put forth a proposal in this regard.
Authorities in the home department said that state home minister on Wednesday recorded remarks in this regard, following which deputy secretary Kailash Gaikwad on Friday shot an internal communication to the state police chief.
The letter, a copy of which is with the TOI, reads, “Since March 2020, policemen from across the state are ceaselessly fighting the situation resulting from Covid-19 pandemic and ensuring peace, harmony in the society, and are keeping a check on law and order situation.”
Appreciating the role played by middle and lower rung cops in handling the current situation, the communication states that policemen are risking their health and lives while some of them even lost their lives to Covid-19 after they got infected with the contagion while performing their duties.
