Police must be committed to control drugs, crime - Defence Secretary

Defence Secretary Maj.Gen.(Retd) Kamal Gunaratne urged police to be committed to control the drug menace and organised crimes by implementing effective strategies.

He said the police needed to be more active to control the drug menace through collective efforts and careful planning.

Highlighting the importance of launching special strategies to curb organised crimes, Maj.Gen. Gunaratne directed senior Police officers, whom he met at a discussion held today (22) at the Ministry, to take tough action against those who were involved in illegal encroachment, filling marshy lands, extortion, forceful acquisition of private lands by organised groups, illegal sand transport, traffic congestion and also sexual harassment against women.

Explaining President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s vision for the country’s future, he said the President had envisioned for a secured nation and law abiding society with the support of law enforcement agencies.

“If Police needs assistance to nab those criminals and control organised illegal activities, the Special Task Force and the Tri-Forces can be deployed to provide additional support,” he assured.

The Defence Secretary requested Police to perform their duties to meet people’s expectations to ensure security while maintaining their reputation.
