Bloodstained uniforms are now the path to reward for the Delhi Police. The police chief, to encourage his men to rush injured people to hospitals instead of waiting for ambulances, will give awards to those whose uniforms have blood stains. The order, which came into effect a fortnight ago, was taken after it was found that some policemen posted in police control room (PCR) vans avoid handling bleeding victims because they don’t want to soil their uniforms. Now, not only will this be rewarded, Delhi Police will also pick up the cleaning tab to incentivise saving lives.
“Policemen who will have bloodstains on their uniforms while transporting the injured to hospitals will be suitably rewarded…."
