Karnataka: Women cops undergo stress management training in Mangaluru | Mangaluru News

MANGALURU: Around 110 women police personnel serving in the Mangaluru city police commissionerate are undergoing a three-day session on managing stress, improving communication skills and personality development with the objective to serve the public better.
During the inaugural of the stress management programme held on Wednesday, city police commissioner N Shashi Kumar hoped that the training programme organised by the Mangaluru City police and Art Of Living of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar will bring transformation in the participants during their interface with the public.
“Women personnel were more stressed because they have a tough task of balancing work and family life. They undergo a lot of stress while discharging their duties effectively. During the three-day training, they will be trained in managing their physical health, mental health, stress management along with developing their communication skills,” he said.
The course will help the personnel to experience happiness and freedom by way of self-introspection. Physical exercise is not enough for being healthy. One should give priority to mental, emotional and spiritual health as well, for the complete development of a personality, Shashi Kumar said, adding he has been part of the course for the past two days.
He said as per the ‘panchasutra’ of the course, people should balance the opposite values and accept the situation and people as they are. “People should live in the present rather than worrying about the future and the past. One should not be preoccupied with the past,” he added.
There are around 150 women police personnel in the Mangaluru city police limits. Barring those who are pregnant, lactating mothers and those who are suffering from illness, all others participated in the programme. The training programme will be extended to other police personnel.
Ajay Kumar and Rashmi of The Art of Living, DCPs Anshu Kumar and BP Dinesh Kumar were present.
