Engagement with Youths

Youths are the symbol of vigor and valour. They represents the ‘Present’. A disciplined and  motivated youth workforce is the true asset of a civilized society. Keeping in mind this objective we have several programmes to have engagement with the youths .

Induction takes place at Constable/ Sepoy level at our Commissionerate , Sub-Inspector/Depty Jamadar/Sergeant level by SSSB , DSP level by OPSC and SP level by UPSC,
  • STV (Student Traffic Volunteer):- With a view to promote awareness and inculcate the idea of Traffic Rules and Regulations among the Youths, we have a dedicated Student Traffic Volunteers Scheme.
