A question of trust in police

A few years ago, a schoolboy had found Rs 14,000 and handed it over to the principal of his school in the Uva Paranagama area. The principal had handed it over to the Chief Inspector of Police of the area, to be sent to the owner.

But recently, the principal found that the money had not gone to the rightful owner. The matter went to the police higher-ups. Senior Deputy Inspector General H.N.B. Ambanwela carried out an inquiry and found the chief inspector guilty. He was stripped of his rank.

Meanwhile, in another incident a constable attached to the Moratuwa police had returned a wallet containing Rs. 17,000 to its owner. Deputy Inspector General I.M. Karunaratne said that although there were a few rotten eggs in the police service, there are also honest and upright police officers who bring honour and pride to the service.
