Premier lauds progress achieved by Police in crime control


Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said the Police Service has achieved a great degree of development and progress today and this has enabled it to control crime to a great extent.“Incidence of crime has reduced by leaps and bounds although this factor did not gain much media publicity.

Similarly, the tendency for resolving crime has also greatly improved. The police service is performing several duties to maintain law and order and I wish to thank the IGP and his subordinate officers for this,” the Premier said addressing a meeting after opening the new police station at Wanathavilluwa, Puttalam on September 29.
