The Ludhiana Commissionerate have started a novel initiative to appreciate cops on traffic duty. The move aims to boost the morale of cops who spend hours on road managing traffic amid the pandemic.

According to the initiative, the policemen having birthday will be given a day off to enjoy the special day with their family.

The initiative, a brainchild of Joint Commissioner of Police (City) Deepak Pareek, the guidance of Police Commissioner Rakesh Agrawal, was kicked off yesterday with the birthday celebration of Constable Rajinder Kaur. The constable was given a bouquet by the senior traffic police officials along with sweets.

Photos to be shared on FB, Twitter

Joint Commissioner of Police (City) Deepak Pareek said photos of the cop having birthday will also be shared on the official Facebook and Twitter accounts of the Ludhiana Commissionerate and the traffic police.

“From now onwards, every traffic cop will get leave on his/her birthday. One day before his/her birthday a police officer of ACP or Inspector rank will go to his place of duty and give him one rose or small flowers bouquet,” Pareek told The Tribune.

“The services that you provide every day do not go unnoticed. Happy birthday, may your day be filled with laughter and great achievements,” read the note from the top cop for the constable.

“Traffic cops at the ones who give duty in every situation whether it’s summer, winter or rainy days. From now onwards, every traffic cop will get leave on his/her birthday. One day before his/her birthday a police officer of ACP or Inspector rank will go to his place of duty and give him one rose or small flowers bouquet,” Pareek told The Tribune.
