Addressing the Passing out Parade of the 73rd batch of IPS probationers at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA) here on Friday, Doval said the country's sovereignty goes as far as the last police station's jurisdiction from the coastal areas to the border areas.

He further said maintaining law and order in every part of the 32 lakh sq km of India is the responsibility of the police forces. "Not only the policing about which you (IPS officers) have been trained well. But, it will extend. You will be responsible for the border management of this country i;e; 15,000 km of the border, most of it has got peculiar problems of its own," he said.

"We have got different types of security-related issues, which are manned by the police and the Central police organisations, which are manning these borders," Doval said.

According to him, the strength of the police force in the country is 21 lakh and so far 35,480 personnel have sacrificed their lives. "We would also like to remember those 40 IPS officers who were martyred," Doval said.

The quintessence of democracy does not lie in the ballot box, but it lies in the laws, which are made by the people, who are elected by or elected through the electoral process, Doval said.

"Laws are not as good as they are made, no nation can be built where rule of law has failed. People cannot feel safe and secure where law enforcers are weak, corrupt, partisan," he maintained.

Police have to work closely with other organisations for which they require a mental attitude together to serve the nation, he said.
Wars have ceased to become an effective instrument giving their political and military objective even as they are unaffordable, uncertain about their outcome, he said, adding it is the civil society that can be subverted, divided and manipulated "to hurt the interest of the nation," Doval said.
"If the internal security fails, no country can be great. If people are not secure, people are not safe, they cannot rise to the potential and probably the country will never grow," he further stated.
