"Drawing also from my experience of 20 years in my own police service in India, I can say that recovering the stolen or robbed properties and further returning these to the rightful owner is one of the most difficult and proud piece of police work. It takes painstaking effort, dedicated hard work and commitment to make that possible."
"On behalf Of UNDSS, I offer my profuse compliment and sincere thanks to your team and to your leadership for the outstanding performance. I'm sure this will go a long way in further strengthening the trust between the police and citizens."
