He charges penalties from those who violate traffic rules. He enforces law and order. He wears a khaki uniform. He has a cane in his hand. A traffic policeman has a whistle in his hand. He uses the whistle to control traffic. He helps in the smooth functioning of governance. He ensures peace and harmony in society.
He settles disputes between the warring parties. He is extra cautious during the religious processions and ensures its sanctity. He keeps the hooligans and the miscreants away. He protects the poor and the weaker.
He is a friend to law abiding citizen and an enemy to those who violate laws. But the corruption has crept in the police department as well. Some policemen are not dutiful and sincere. They prefer material gains to their duties. Sometimes they develop close ties with the anti-social elements and thus bargain the peace and harmony of society. Such policemen bring notoriety to police department. The policeman should be sincere to his duty.
He should be honest and perform his duty. Only then we will have a good society.
