HomeDay after DGP, 416 cops get Covid jab

Day after DGP, 416 cops get Covid jab

A day after Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Dinkar Gupta volunteered to be the first among the Punjab Police personnel to get the Covid-19 vaccination jab, the drive has picked up momentum with 416 policemen getting inoculated on Day 2.

Additional Director General of Police (ADGP)-cum-Director, Punjab Police Academy (PPA), Phillaur, Anita Punj; Inspector General of Police (IGP)-cum-Additional Director, PPA, Yurinder Singh Hayer; IGP, Faridkot, Kaustubh Sharma; Commissioner of Police (CP), Ludhiana, Rakesh Agrawal; and CP, Jalandhar, Gurpreet Singh Bhullar, besides 12 Senior Superintendents of Police (SSPs) of different districts were among the top brass to get the Covid-19 vaccine on Wednesday.

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh launched the second phase of Covid-19 vaccination drive for frontline workers at the Police Headquarters here on Tuesday, during which as many as 49 police personnel, including the DGP, four ADGPs and other senior officers, were inoculated.

DGP Gupta once again urged the entire Punjab Police force to get inoculated with Covid-19 vaccine to protect themselves as well as the people of the state from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, to keep the force motivated, the Punjab Police have also started putting a digital badge — a virtual recognition by the DGP, on the pictures of police personnel getting the jab.
