March 15, 2015: His Majesty The King, ac­com­pa­nied by Her Majesty The Gyalt­suen, graced Royal Bhutan Po­lice’s 47th Batch Gagsars’ At­tes­ta­tion Pa­rade.

150 men and 50 women re­cruits who com­pleted their train­ing at Jig­mel­ing and four men and two women cadet of­fi­cers, who trained at Tashigat­shel Po­lice Train­ing Cen­tre, pre­sented Guard of Hon­our to His Majesty The King. Ad­dress­ing the Gagsars, His Majesty said that as they car­ried out their du­ties, they must al­ways hon­our the sa­cred oath they took to­day to serve and pro­tect the coun­try and peo­ple with­out fear or hes­i­ta­tion.

His Majesty re­minded the re­cruits of the na­tional goals- to pro­tect the se­cu­rity and sovereignty of our coun­try, main­tain peace and unity among the peo­ple, and en­able the peo­ple to achieve eco­nomic pros­per­ity and ful­fill their as­pi­ra­tions by es­tab­lish­ing good gov­er­nance. His Majesty said that as po­lice­men and po­lice­women, it was their re­spon­si­bil­ity to be ex­em­plary cit­i­zens, and while work­ing to serve the peo­ple, they must en­deav­our to earn the trust and con­fi­dence of those who they serve.

His Majesty said that while cod­i­fied laws ex­ist to main­tain or­der in so­ci­ety, our true ob­jec­tive as a na­tion was to main­tain a civil so­ci­ety, where re­spect and har­mony among the peo­ple is a nat­u­ral man­i­fes­ta­tion of our cul­tural her­itage. His Majesty ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion for sev­eral po­lice­men work­ing in var­i­ous parts of the coun­try, who had shown ex­em­plary hon­esty and ded­i­ca­tion to ser­vice. His Majesty re­minded the re­cruits to take in­spi­ra­tion from th­ese ex­am­ples, and carry out their du­ties with the high­est stan­dards of in­tegrity.

The re­cruits pre­sented a drill and cul­tural pro­gramme to Their Majesties. His Majesty later granted an au­di­ence to the po­lice su­per­in­ten­dents and other of­fi­cers from across the coun­try. The peo­ple of neigh­bor­ing ar­eas wel­comed Their Majesties with Tshogchang of­fer­ings along the high­way.
